Now I like ebay as much as the next guy (did you know there are people who will buy unused Starbucks coffee cards? Canadian designs are particularly popular, apparently - not so many of them around), but have you heard about the guy in Wollongong who has sold his life? Not only does the winning bidder get the basics like his name and phone number, he also becomes the proud owner of a repertoire of six jokes and a fractured relationship with an ex-girlfriend. If the sale goes through (the top bidder at $7500 is presumably someone who has no life...) Holt (or the ebayer formerly known as Holt - who will he become after he's sold his life?) wants to make a documentary about the process. Now that's a movie I'd like to see!
