    Its pretty funny how people are willing to buy so much money for basically bullshit, just because its trendy to do.

    On a related note, I don't get how it would violate the physical items rule, since air is a physical item with ~78 % nitrogen and 21% oxygen and a few other elements.

    I remember years ago in this forum someone posted an eBay auction for $10,000 for a piece of paper, it went viral and the price increased bids were crazy like $10,000 each. Obviously fake accounts. The funny thing everyone here tried to copy the idea thinking they could get 1 million for nothing.

    the "fake account bidding picked up by bored people who want to write about something" interesting explanation seems plausible
