    That's 200 thousand POUNDS. About 355,000$, if I'm not mistaken.

    Apparently it's a new trend: If something doesn't sell, raise the price!

    Wait ... Wait! He didn't say 'consider bidding' ... he said 'consider biding' ... I checked out my Merriam-Webster for the authoritative definition

    So he really wants you to wait ...to tarry ... to bide your time :ninja:

    The mystery is just how much of an idiot this guy is...
