A broken laser pointer, for $14.83, in September 1995. At the time, eBay was called AuctionWeb.

You've heard the expression - "There's a sucker born every minute"...eBay takes that to the limit!!

    Most doubt. God gave Adam a chance, he failed, God gave a lot of people chances and they failed so he said no one is perfect so He sent His only begotten son to cleanse us and forgive us. What was He going to fill heaven with otherwise?
