Millionaires for two hours

From 2009-10-19 22:38 to -20 0:25 I was a subjective millionaire, and a brother of mine too. On 22:38 he told me that he searched through completed eBay auctions and found that many digital cameras on did not get sold at all (zero bids), meaning we could have got them for 1 EUR each. We found out that such listings started to appear around 2009-10-14 and thought it must be due to an eBay bug that prevented people from finding or bidding on these. Then we searched through other categories as well, and found these unsold items everywhere. Notebooks, motorbikes, a VW Touran car, and even a truck (see below). The next day we wanted to find more of these items in running auctions by some way, get them for 1 EUR, resell them and tell the people to complain at eBay for getting just 1 EUR for their car etc.. ๐Ÿ™‚

At 0:25 I found that truck in the image above in cached Google results, and it had bids on it. ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ™ That made the dream end, as the whole thing was just an eBay bug that affected the presentation of completed items. Interesting enough, however, i know do know how it feels to be rich … it emotionally exhausted us and we needed a “reorientation phase” to again accept the fact that we had to do some hard work for our money …
