eBay seems to be a common household name these days.  But, when did eBay start up?  It started up in 1995.  By the way, that was 19 years ago!  Now do you feel old?  :) I remember when I used to party like it was 1999!

Did you know...that the first item sold on eBay was a broken laser pointer.  It sold for $14.83.  When the founder of eBay asked why the guy bought it, he said, quote, "I'm a collector of broken laser pointers."
