    You can own Paul McCartney's germs. A seller caught a cold from him. He'll cough into a bag and send it to you.

    On the radio this morning, they said Jose Conseco, who is apparently under house arrest (I don't follow sports or their athletes), is auctioning off a visit with him on eBay. You get to go to his house, hang out with him for a day, and have a BBQ in his backyard. Bidding starts @ $2500.

    I once saw someone auctioning off a cyst ridden testical he had removed. Thinking that this would be a funny thing have sent a friends house as a practical joke I place a bid on it for the whopping sum of $2.00. The following day I checked the auction to see how it was doing and the bidding had surpassed the $20.00 amount. Guess there's a market out there for just about anything these days.

    I saw an auction where you get a piece of paper for $5.

    It was to send the kid to school in Japan over summer. It was a multiple auction where he had 1000 He originally had the money, but someone told him how great Air Canada was in the stock market and he invested something like $5000 into it and watched it fall down. At least that was his story on E-bay.

    What a coincidence, I just uploaded a little home video ( [​IMG] ) that illustrates the caution that must be taken on eBay. It requires RealPlayer. (And it's clean.)
