the act of bidding on an item on ebay literally seconds before the auction ends. This prevents anyone from outbidding you while also ensuring that you don't bump the price up too much.
rather than bidding early and inflate the price, Geraldo waited until the last couple seconds of the auction for the pimp cup he was bidding on before placing his bid. He succeeded in sniping the item.

A good job, mate. S' challengin' work, out o' doors... guarantee you'll not go hungry, 'cause at the end of the day, long as there's two people left on the planet, someone is gonna want someone dead.
To be a sniping professional, you must have standards.

Be polite. Be efficient. Have a plan to kill everyone you meet.

From the the word snipe.
Sniping is the act of firing at a target from a medium to long range, with a firearm or any other ranged weapon. Sniping usually involves a potent bolt action rifle with a scope, although there are semi automatic platforms such as the M82A1, M21. Calibers for these weapons usually include 12.7mm and 7.62mm and more. The art of sniping usually requires two people, spotter and shooter, the spotter usually finds the target and does calculations for wind speed, distance and deviation because of the Coriolis effect. Sniping IS NOT limited to achieving kills with scoped weapons. Marksmen and snipers ARE not the same thing, Marksmen are found within squads. Snipers are found in the company or battallion
As he looked through the scope on his Barret M82A1, he gently squeezed the trigger, in less than a second the head of the man he was sniping burst as if someone had thrown chilli into the air. The spotter smiled as he pat the sniper on the back, enjoying the spectacle

taking pictures of your friends when they do not realize it, usually resulting in an embarrassing picture

the only way to avoid a snipe is to put up two fingers to indicate you are aware of the snipe, or to smile and make it a nice picture- because if it's a good picture, it's not a good snipe

other forms of this game include dropping. dropping is when you plant an object on a friend without their knowledge, usually resulting in a ridiculous appearance.

the best combination is a drop snipe because then you have a ridiculously embarrassing picture of your friend to tag on facebook
