Markets in everything: The ten weirdest items sold on ebay

by on June 28, 2006 at 3:09 am in Economics | Permalink

Here is the list, but what about the atheist who asks to be paid to go to church?  My favorite:

8.  Item #248619068:  The Meaning of Life

Someone finally figured it out, and they put it up for sale on eBay.
Even with eight bids this incredible find didn’t fetch much, but it was
probably the best $3.26 the winning bidder ever spent.

Of course you can get it here for free…

I don’t know, I thought the Haunted NES was a pretty good catch.

That list wasn’t very exciting. I’ve seen much more interesting things on eBay. I once saw a NATO base for sale (it was in Canada I think).

One of the items on the University of Chicago Scavenger Hunt list a few years ago was, “The street value of Mount Everest” One team put it up for sale on EBay to get a figure (EBay removed it before closing).
