    Well, shoot, I'm out of luck. He wouldn't ship nothing to Canada. [​IMG]

    Nothing on eBay surprises me anymore (no pun intended).

    What if the guy decided not to pay, would ebay be able to go after him for it?

    Ebay has a certain niche with people just trying to find a public outlet for creativity. Be it the auction for an ass-kicking, posessed dolls, giant cheetos, and whatnot. I think its kind a funny.

    Was this a featured auction? It has over 81,000 hits. How the heck do you get that many hits? Maybe links from sites like these? If it was a featured auction, the seller actually just lost money on nothing!

    Makes me think of Dire Straits' song Money for Nothing.

    Well Marvin, technically, the seller doesn't have to ship anything, because he sold nothing...

    on the other hand, if he does decide to ship something, such as a marble, or maybe a scratch and sniff sticker, then the buyer gets his money back, because that's not what he bought...
