Just in time for X-Mas

U2 vs. Negativland IPod "special edition". Totally Unauthorized, but your purchase will help Downhill Battle , and thus, will end the major label monopoly and build a better, fairer music industry. If you are not the high-bidder, you can always make your own by stopping here and here .

Biker angst on Ebay It's been poltergeisted and cootie-scanned -- man sells ex-wife's helmet. Description reads like drunken letter to Penthouse.

Imaginary girlfriends rule!

Are you tired of being alone and your friends and family thinking that you are gay or just can't get a girlfriend.  If so, then I am the woman you are looking for.
Oh... me, me, me, me, and me too. And then there's the nun.

First Law of Thermodynamics Repealed?

Perpetual-motion machine being sold on eBay. It's essentially six automotive alternators connected (via motorcycle chain) to an electric motor. One of the alternators supposedly powers the motor, leaving the remaining five to provide 700W of free energy. Sigh...people actually believe this crapola?

A Scranton, PA man is auctioning 250,000 pieces of software mostly games from the 80s and early 90s composed of around 20,000 unique titles (2MB Excel Spreadsheet) for $250,000. He says its the worlds biggest collection and many games are rare and in demand. You will need trucks and warehouse. If anyone can afford to sit on these for a few decades untill the 80s generation gets old and nostalgic it could be the Schoyen of early computer gameing software.

Let the market decide

Let the market decide where Dan Bern will play next. Bern and his band are auctioning off a private concert at the auction winner's house. You can apparently make his appearance as large or intimate as you want. Would a dutch auction like this be enough to build a U.S. tour on?

Truth in advertising

Truth in advertising is such a rare thing. I particularly like the reply to the VP of Engineering from Polk Audio. You can only wonder if it was a real email or somebody just trying to yank his chain.

Do you want to be a slum lord? Well you can, with just $2,100,000, you can own enough guns and cheap broken tv sets to last a lifetime. Yes, you even get to own their dirty laundry as well.

Enron Employees make Ends meet on eBay

Enron Employees make Ends meet on eBay
Ah eBay. Enron employees in Houston are making ends meet by selling just about anything related to Enron on eBay. In addition to stock certificates you can also buy Enron's Risk Management Manual (great excerts too) and Enron's Code of Ethics book. Or, if you are into Enron's objects d'art, check out these awards given to executives who completed the Executive Impact & Influence Program program. They were all yo-yos of course.

This

This unsettled me more than this. Or maybe it's a case that she has flushed any true happiness down the toilet by being so devoted to work, that it's a good thing. The jury is out for me, but not for some rapscallion who has bid a quarter of a million.

They're auctioning off my childhood. But I can always pick up the original Enterprise for only US$15,000. Starting bid, of course. Maybe I'd rather have Shatner's Kirk tunic -- a steal at only US$6,000.

Death sells, but who's buying?

Death sells, but who's buying? An enterprising fellow was so moved by the recent Texas tragedy of a depressed mother killing her five children that he bought the domain name "AndreaYates.com" and put it up for auction on Ebay. Ebay, that bastion of good taste , eventually pulled the auction.

For the CEO who has everything... how about a 1985 Toyota MR2 powered by 3 turbojet engines? You start it with a leaf blower. Seller says it is "probably street legal except for this little 'excessive noise' issue". Up for grabs at eBay, currently $7,700 will take this baby home!
