A 1978 Goldwing motorcycle. 45 "Somewhat used" electric R/C airplanes. A fake Tiffany "Turtleback" lamp. My wife's 120-year-old Platinum and Ruby engagement ring (we had it appraised at 4x what I paid for it). 25 pounds of Potassium Nitrate and 20 pounds of powdered Sulfur. 150 pounds of magnesium plate for $23, plus I had to drive 1 1/2 hrs to pick it up. A Big Trak with Transporter trailer, which was working until UPS CRUSHED THE BOX and broke it! (I resold it for parts) Weird things I've sold on Ebay- Two MSA firefighting SCBA (Air Packs) A 1995 Chevy Astro Van with wrecked steering (the buyer didn't pick it up). 1987 Honda VF500 Interceptor front fairing. 22 embossed "Rolling Rock Beer" advertising signs that I found in the trash (and sold for $340). 14 iPods that I bought on Ebay, Broken, repaired them, and "ReBayed" them. (I made up that term a few years ago- to ReBay is to buy something on eBay, then resell it on eBay for more than the purchase price.) That's only a fraction....

I didn't buy this online (I bought it in an oddity store), but it's the weirdest thing I've ever bought. A jar with a preserved shark floating in it.

If it got shipped to your house, then that is pretty strange.

LOL. Yeah, duh, of course, hahaha. Hmm, it's not that weird, they probably just are moving and they can't bring the dog or something, it's not really that weird.
