ebay and incubators

Everyone one eBay seems obsessed with incubators.

I have been lurking assiduously for the last week or so and some of the second hand ones are going for more than you can buy a new one for.

What is it about eBay (and auctions in general) that inspires people to such lunacy?

I have had three glasses of wine - the bag needed emptying, otherwise it would have gone vinegary. But even without the alcholic haze, we have had a day of triumph:

  • Dangerously wobbly shelves dismantled: 2
  • Functional, fantastic shelves that do not collapse, put up: 2
  • Random bits of wood turned in to batons: 3
  • Odd bits of laminate (originally decorative upstand) turned in to work-surface with perfectly formed corners: 1
  • Gallons of beer begun to make : 1
  • Garden benches revamped: 1
  • Greenhouses almost finished: 1
  • French beans seedlings planted out to go in greenhouse:  6
  • Poultry-pens and houses designed and marked out on ground: 1 of each
So there.

*retires, to tumultous applause*
