    Friend of a friend tries ebay.....

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MESE%3AIT&rd=1

    Email telling me about it

    So,

    I set myself up with an eBay account cos I intend selling a load of old rubbish - and to see how it works, I auctioned "nothing"….and didn't publicise it anywhere…. at a cost of approx 30p to me.

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...MESE%3AIT&rd=1

    And look…someone has bid £2. And there are 5 'watchers' - so it might even go up in this final hour!!

    I can't quite believe it.
    Nigel...

    Q: Hello mate, What colour is your nothing available in? Cheers

    A: Its pigment is British Racing Green - however it's doesn't reflect any light so should fit with any decor.

    I was intending to place a dead light bulb on there some time ago, (suitable for collectors) but realisesd going to post it would be far too much effort.

    Great. I've seen several similar auctions in the past, and they always get some bids. I've never actually seen 2 quid before, usually in the pennies.

    I think Prince Charles' apparent fart in a jar went for about 7 quid!
