Sounds like a great way to get rid of stuff for a tidy bit of profit. I wish he had some kind of proof that this was, in fact, Douglas Adams' tent (a photo of the two of them together, for instance).

Huh. Reading your second link, it appears to be genuine. Cool!

Not FPP material, methinks.

You want a 33 year old nasty towel? I've got one that's five years old I'll sell you for $500. I get your point though.

Seriously, you've gotta be one heck of a fan to kick down $1000 for his tent.

I wonder how Adams' would feel about his buddy selling it from profit on eBay?

If I had it, I'd pay ten thousand. That's a holy relic right there.

I had no idea eBay had a "totally bizarre" category. Cool.

And yeah, if I was independently wealthy, I'd pick it up. The Hitchhikers Guide books opened my mind up to amazing possibilties back in 6th grade.

If you prefer a wedding gown, try this.

Absolutely. I wish I had the 1k and the space to store it. Though I'm still skeptical it's really his. 0 feedback after all....

"Not FPP material, methinks."

I disagree. A fun little post, and an interesting heads-up for DNA fans.
