I came across that one yesterday

I almost PM'd him to tell him he was missing a "1." on the lens to make it that price, but seem as it was election day I didn't want to shatter his dreams.

Now that the election is over, somebody should really tell him before some innocent soul falls for such a tempting deal.

Years ago, when listing was free on eBay (anybody remember that?) I saw somebody auctioning the stuff found between the cushions of his couch. There was a surprising amount of stuff there, and a fair bit of loose change. He actually got a few bids

And what about that guy who was auctioning off his virginity? I believe eBay closed down his auction. That's the day I lost faith in eBay. If a man can't sell off his virginity, then what freedom do we have left...?

Men never get to sell it, we always end up paying one way or another.
I guess that's why gay men are happy, they take turns at paying.

Sorry Miserere, no offense to any women, I just couldn't resist.

I say that's the MS cashback effect. Who knows this "POWER SELLER" may be lucky ... = )

Please educate an idiot. What would the "1" indicate and why would the "1" make the lens worth what this maroon is asking?

"1." as in f/1.2 instead of f/2.

I had a brush with similar on Craigslist; the seller initially wrote 1.2 until I asked him to confirm it wasn't 1:1.2... one can dream at least!
