    Auction started on Ebay today, I found an AA battery selling for :ebay:£20,000 :ebay:OMG! Here is the link http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&item=250382174093

    Battery on ebay selling for £20,000

    What sort of person do you think will buy it?

    It seems to me that this will go viral very quick

    I think auctions like that are LAME and VERY OLD. Not funny or weird, just lame.

    lol - he claims to be selling publicity but only has 10 views! Bargain - now if he was to donate 95% of his proceeds to the charity then I think he'd get a buyer!

    It says they are supporting a charity so it`s got to be a better reason than all the other stupid fucking things sold on Ebay over the past few years

    The lamest auction ever put online. If he/she used a real credit card then someone ought to bid on the thing, so he pays a hefty fee to ebay.

    I like these when they are creative, but c'mon...a battery? At least auction something creative, like 9 Mike Vick cards chewed by your dog. <- That's a real example.

    http://www.newser.com/archive-sports-news/1G1-168178665/vick-cards-that-two-dogs-chewed-sell-for-7400sports.html

    22 cards, what ever.

    So if he doesnt sell then how much u think as i have never used ebay before but i think this guy could be exploiting ebay to get traffic maybe its worth considering say £5 i dont know for ebay catchy title then monetize it to make some money from ebay without selling is £5 about right?

    He would have to pay around £3 or so, not too bad.

    "The seller ended this listing early because of an error in the minimum bid or reserve amount."
