What'll they think of next? Someone is auctioning off a Word Document and manuscript! I heard that an "Almost Square" piece of cardboard went for about $80.

Here's the link -

They sell all kinds of things at ebay...

Btw, what about that "soul-seller", OM? Was he a bit deranged, or just a fraud? IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Wierd Ebay Auctions_files/tongue.gif)

that's kind of a catch-22. It would not be worth buying the soul of anyone willing to sell it.

They didn't sue him, they just took his auction down. Ebay's terms and conditions forbid the sale of body parts.

I'm sure you could try to sue e-bay because it recognizes the soul as a body part. However, you would need a really good lawyer.

A soul could be a nickname for the sum of all of your thoughts, both concious and subconcious.

Well, if a soul doesn't exist, it goes against Ebay's rule of selling something that doesn't exist.

I'll sel my soul. As far as I'm concerned the idea of a soul is as farcical as the toothfairy. If I can make money out of it by selling it to someone who fancies themself a real-life Milhouse, then all the better.

If one does not believe that one's soul is something that actually exists, one can see nothing to lose by selling it. IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Wierd Ebay Auctions_files/tongue.gif)

Centuries ago, one person was promised a demon by another and sued when he didn't get it. Curiously, the courts took a rationalist line on this, dismissing the case, rather than a traditionalist one, which would have involved calling the Witchfinder General. Or would it? A look into the background of the 'Faust' myth shopws interogating 'spirits' was once an academically respectable way of discovering new knowledge.

Let's see. I've seen:
-An inflatable church
-A bent paperclip
-Nothing
-A "haunted" painting
-A real house that looks like a plane on a pedestal
-Five cubic feet of packing peanuts
-Thoughts of good will towards the buyer
-A dollar bill
-A Cheeto someone found in a package which was twice the normal size and of a really weird shape

And I've probably seen more than that. Be sure to look at Albinoblacksheep.com, which seems to keep a list of weird e-Bay auctions.

LOL! That reminds me of the Witchsmeller Pursuivant episode of the first Blackadder series.

You can sell pretty much anything on e-bay. I think I once saw an inflatable dartboard for sale.

People will buy anything nowadays IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Wierd Ebay Auctions_files/rolleyes.gif)

Someone sold their virginity on Ebay for over 2 Grand. That is by far the most famous of odd things sold on Ebay. EGM magazine sold a half-eaten sandwich for $40 for the Sept. 11th fund.
Peices of the second Mars Pathfinder (The one that was lost) and also scraps of the spaceship that crashed not so long ago.
A friend of mine buys used clothes in large quantity.

Whichever one of you claimed they are not allowed to sell body parts is sadly mistaken. Kidneys are quite frequent on the site.

It's still against Ebay's rules; more to the point, it's illegal. If Ebay is notified of one of those auctions going on, it'll take it down.

That's still a deal. IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Wierd Ebay Auctions_files/tongue.gif)

Whatever did the buyer get, anyway? IMAGE(Spiderweb Software Boards Wierd Ebay Auctions_files/confused.gif)
