    I do try to, but usually on things that i've already been outbit on.

    It's pretty intense tho, especially when you're buying things that you REALLY have to have... like tickets.

    I get a sweat right on in the last 5 seconds!!!

    If i happen to catch it close to the ending of the sale I'll keep an eye on it. but seldom would I come back at the time of it ending days later unless i REALLY want it, hehe...

    People get proper into eBay though, they'll bid on stuff that they can still buy & end up spending more on it. I've got a few tunes off of eBay. (y)
