    It's up to $55 with 3 days left! It just snowed this morning, better grab a handful.

    Wait a second! That is no ordinary snow, that is snow from Texas. Snow from Texas is a collectors item.

    Wow, some people really get excited about snow. Did you notice the retracted bids? I guess they bid, then checked their bank account balance. :rofl:

    Do you think they can return it when it arrives defective, as just a puddle of water?

    The payment instructions say "Sale is final". It also says insurance is not available. Hopefully, he's shipping this overnight mail - 6 to 8 weeks for delivery probably wouldn't be very effective.

    Of course, at a minimum, the buyer will get an ice chest. :approve:

    I like the recent trend of people auctioning off pictures of things. They'll put up a picture of a nintendo system with games and say "Bid on this picture of a BRAND NEW NINTENDO DS with 10 GAMES!" and some poor chap will buy it for $150

    Dammit, they stole my idea! I was going to make a tiny little snowman, keep it in the freezer and sell it on ebay in the name of charity sometime in summer
