Default New ebay record!

Continuation of astouffer's thread:

Just been checking his feedback, very reasonable at 100% after 248 transactions.

It's just very odd than none of the feedback is as a seller. Hmmm?

In all fairness, unless it's a tube crafted from pure diamond and is guaranteed to last until the end of days, no way I'll be spending that much on it*. He's got one's going up to $30,000 for a set.

* Let's just ignore that even if I did have that much money right now, that is not where it would be going, as cool as diamond tubes sound, whcih, on an off topic note, I wonder if diamond tubes would actually sound good...

No intention to sell is my guess. As with other outrageous stuff, it's to promote, hoax, or just have fun. See, he got you guys talking about it!

How about this for a record price? Check out his bio if you have an extra half hour to spare.

This has to be THE nuttiest eBay listing I've ever seen!
On the other hand, better let him go ahead and take money from such foolish people who hold similar outrageous beliefs as his. Anyone stupid enough to give him a single dime deserves it.

Hi BHTX,

I took the liberty of removing the comments about religion as that violates our policy. Thanks for your understanding.

Then maybe this is divine intervention:

This listing (220464199449) has been removed, or this item is not available.
