It's all on eBay (fwd)

Vielleicht interessierts hier jemanden, bei uns hat eBay ja noch einen
etwas negativen Beigeschmack, als ob es alles Betrug waer.

One of the coolest things about eBay is that it is also this gigantic 
collaborative encyclopedia of everything.  Even if you aren't going to buy 
the camera (or whatever) it's almost always worthwhile running stuff down 
on eBay and reading the listings & looking at the pictures.  You can learn 
a lot through the everyday idiosyncratic knowledge of your fellow human 
beings.  This is one of the reasons why eBay is really such an interesting 
phenomenon...it ain't the Beenie babies and the actual objects...it's the 
cultural knowledge.
