    this is really funny .. people are dying everywhere and going into financial problems, cyclones and here are people bidding for something silly as much as they are… plate numbers???!!!! it is a hard equation indeed … but at the same time it is a normal result beacuse when you have a lot of money that you didn’t work for (as you made others do it for you – slaves) … sure you will spend it on such games (free money)
