Item Description wrote:These octagonal votive candles are triple scented with the smell of Marijuana straight from the bag. Perhaps a gag gift for your fave ole hippy? Or a conversation piece? Even before being lit these candles will fill a room with that "Pot" smell. I get the "munchies" big time just making these candles. These uniquiely shaped votives will each burn for 15 hours so four of them will last a total of 60 hours! They are 2 inches tall by 1 5/8 inches wide.

LOL! :lol:

I don't get it. Whay are people bidding on these things? Are they scam bids to go with the scam auctions? But the auctions aren't really scams, in the sense that the sellers are completely up-front about what they are selling.

Yeah.
Ok, really these are chunks of auto glass that I glued together and spray-painted silver. Ultimatum probably isn't even a real mineral. This auction is for these two home-made fake mineral things.

maybe the guy thinks he's very clever.
well, either he's not or he's just inaccurate.
mineral ???????????????

he's saying here that it's an elemet, not a mineral.
and of course there's no such element. definitely no such element.

Image

that would be Magnesium (Mg) in the table where he would have Ultimatum.

let's see you guys in the US: who know what Cf stands for?

what is interesting is:
The shipping charge will be $3 within the United States of America, $4 to Canada and $6 to the United Kingdom. If the winning bid is equal to any prime number number of U.S. cents (i.e. $6.43, $10.19) I will pay for the shipping. (This is actually harder to achieve than it appears. There is a trick)

neat! :D
but i don't know why he says it's difficult, and what's the trick?
he is linking to a list of prime numbers!

Becuase ebay doesn't easily allow you to get a prime number in cents when you go to out bid someone.
Simply when i bid 4.50 on an item and that my highest bid. but ebay shows the bid at 2.25 so you bid 6.50 it isn't going make the high bid 4.51 but it is going make it like 4.75 or something like that? I forgot the exact way it works out.

the best way to acttually do that is to have a friend bid 4.50 and then at the last second you bid 4.51(thus your prime number) and you go the highest bid

also i love this
