38. You realize how many Second Chance offers it'll take?
Most of these big bids are frauds. You and I both know it. But according to eBay rules, you have to give the second-highest bid a chance, and if that goes, the third-highest...

I wonder how many bids this will have to go before they find someone willing to pay real money.
