Ok, this must be Snitsky (auction.wwe.com)

Why anyone would pay that much for shoes and repeatedly bid more and more every minute is beyond me. Same guy is bidding for her tank top too. Anyone rememeber anything going for this much?

They also just launched a Taker DVD signed by Randy Orton that will go to the Undertaker retirement fund.

Could be just some goof using a yahoo or hotmail email address that's just dicking around and jacking up the bid amount.

Or MAYBE all those bids were under the highest bid, so they kept rebidding until THEY had the highest bid. Geez, some of you don't even know how eBay works.

Example:

Let's say Steve Blackman's kendo stick is up for auction. No bids yet, minimum bid is $1.

I bid $100 because I don't want to dick around. It shows up on the site as "someone's bid $1."

For reasons we can't explain, THREE DAYS go by with nobody else showing ANY interest in the stick. I start to feel pretty confident.

Kurt Angle happens by the site - HE remembers getting hit with that stick - or at least he thinks he did - his memory isn't what it used to be since landing on his head a few times. So he decides to bid $2. His bid goes in but because I have a higher bid, the site says "Sorry, someone's bid $3."

Kurt curses and places a $4 bid. Auction comes back and says "nope, $5 bid here."

Kurt, oblivious, keeps nickel-and-diming it, 'cause he's cheap. FINALLY he gets the idea and bids TWO hundred dollars. The auction says "hey, you're the highest bidder at $101. Congrats."

Now, hhhgamewmx7 clicks on the list of bids and it looks like:

OLMPCSLM $101.00 25-Aug-05 11:00
CRZLUVSB $100.00 22-Aug-05 15:30
OLMPCSLM $ 75.00 25-Aug-05 10:59
OLMPCSLM $ 50.00 25-Aug-05 10:58
OLMPCSLM $ 40.00 25-Aug-05 10:58
OLMPCSLM $ 30.00 25-Aug-05 10:57
OLMPCSLM $ 25.00 25-Aug-05 10:56
OLMPCSLM $ 20.00 25-Aug-05 10:56
OLMPCSLM $ 15.00 25-Aug-05 10:55
OLMPCSLM $ 10.00 25-Aug-05 10:55
OLMPCSLM $ 8.00 25-Aug-05 10:54
OLMPCSLM $ 6.00 25-Aug-05 10:53
OLMPCSLM $ 4.00 25-Aug-05 10:52
OLMPCSLM $ 2.00 25-Aug-05 10:50

So he RUSHES to the board and makes a "this guy's jacking up the price every minute, what the hell" post...when what's REALLY happened is poor Kurt just wants to WIN the damn thing but he hasn't had the highest auction bid until his very LAST one. Don't cast dispersions on Kurt! He may be cheap, but his heart's in the right place! He's just playing the auction game!

In short...look at the timestamps, people. It's all right there.

If I had known it was up for auction, I would have gone $125.

They used to have them all the time on eBay. Maybe they still do! I haven't looked lately.

In other news, I don't think there's a spoiler in here, but that's only because I haven't read any sets of spoilers so I don't know any better. Ignorance is bliss and Battlezone is OVERRULED

It's only a spoiler of what is currently on WWE.com.

I think a real olympic hero like Kirk Angel would know a little bit more about ebay then that. However, I bet HHHgamewmx7 would be that dumb.

I appreciate it. Because I had no idea the eBay worked that way. Is there no way for the person to check what the current highest bid is, or is Kurt Angle just being silly in this situation?

You can tell from the main page what the *current* highest bid is, but you can't tell what their maximum bid was until you try to beat it.

If you bid $5000, it'll only show the amount that you needed to take over the highest bid, but will automatically (and instantly) re-bid for you the second you're overbid until it hits the $5000 maximum that you first entered.

It's usually good to do this, because most people that win eBay auctions do so by entering a bid with 2 or 3 seconds to go and try to get the highest bid without leaving any chance for anyone to even see that they've bid. The only problem is if you bid overboard to ensure you win it and someone actually pushes your bid higher than you actually thought it would ever go.
