Wow, that's twice today. And I didn't think anything worthy of MetaFilter happened around here.

I don't see the point of this article. Soul-selling via online auctions isn't anything new-- the article even admits that. But I guess this one is unique because it ended before getting yanked? That makes it newsworthy?

I absolutely loved the final line:

"I was just bored, and I'm a geek," Burtle said. "So anytime I'm bored, I go back to my Internet."

Doesn't that really sum it all up?
