Have you heard the recent story of the Nintendo Entertainment System that fetched over $13,000 on eBay? Here's a paragraph from the story this week on Yahoo's pluggedin site:
Last week, North Carolina eBay user lace_thongs35 thought she was
putting up an everyday, 80s-era Nintendo Entertainment System (together
with five games) up on the popular auction site.
But less than an hour after the first bid, the price was over $6,000 —
and on Wednesday, when the auction closed, the final selling price
Is that unbelievable or what! lace_thongs35 — that is so hot. I'd probably buy anything from her, even an old video system. Oh sure, the story goes on to say it had something to do with a highly coveted game she was including with the sale, Stadium Event — in it's original box, but who cares about that.
Let's be real here: the story is about this seller's screen name — I'd want to see pictures of her and better understand how she came up with that name! (Unless, of course, we found out that it's really a man. Then this would be a sick story of some pervert nerd who just scored huge selling his old unit video console.)
