So, YOU would not pay that much, but some other fool would.
Why do you have a problem with that?

The bidder is happy he won, the seller is happy he got that much money. The world needs more happiness.

I was very happy to sell a bottle of whisky to a man in Japan for $600 USD last year.

As eBay regulars will know, I sold it purely for the bottle (it was a Charles and Diana wedding Glenlivet) with some brown liquid inside it. Because it's contrary to the rules to sell alcohol for drinking.

Because I like being outraged. I need to be outraged! And ebay makes it so easy!

Probably because they didn't think of it first.

Whose outraged? I'm normally more bemused by ebay than anything else.

Why your outrage at their outrage?

And why my outrage at your outrage at their outrage?

And why their outrage at my … um … we're going to need a bigger boat.

Anonymous outrage at anonymous stupid people ?

Well, it gets the blood pressure down.

Why all the outrage over outrageous bids?

Well I hate to be picky John, but if they are outrageous we should be outraged, no??

So saith the moving tongue icon guy.

Praise be the moving tongue guy. He is wise, we are not worthy.

There's seven days in a week and only so much to be outraged about, so as with the rest of America we here at TMP have to find the slightest, smallest, stupidest, most ridiculous little picayune things to fill all those gaps in our Outrage Schedule (tm).

Passes the time, though…

because it makes people think things are worth more then they are and sellers want more then they are worth.

Just look back at what banks and realtors did to house prices so they could make more money then POP when buyers said enough and buildings sat unsold for years. A building should drop in cost the older it gets just like a car or any other thing that wears out with age.

It's supply meeting demand in a free market. Why do hate capitalism? (Please imagine some sort of tongue-in-cheek icon here).
