Man Attempts To Auction Off The Earth!

MASHABLE.COM - Much more valuable than your Crayola collector's tin, a Japanese man is attempting to auction off the Earth on Yahoo Auctions. Even weirder, at the time of this writing, the auction has 2,772 bids, with the current price sitting at 9,912,356,678 Yen, or about $123,472,279, with four days remaining.

The auction initially started at $0.86, but has since caught fire. We assume the winner isn't actually going to pay hundreds of millions of dollars, but this is pretty fun nonetheless.

The auction is full of amusing (or terrifying, depending on how you view it) little tidbits. In the product description, the seller claims that God gave him the planet, so it's now his to auction. The seller asks bidders to consult the shipping method. The item description also says the seller requires bidders to give him a letter of purchase intent so he knows the bidders are serious about purchasing the item. The planet is listed as an authentic item, and unfortunately, there is no return policy. click here to read more

    SPOKANE, Wash. - From the outside, the Repeat Boutique looks like a lot of other thrift shops in Spokane.  Inside, some might describe the stuff for sale as old, used, discarded garbage -- but store manager CJ Curtis sees its potential. And just like the goods in her shop, CJ is on her way to a new life, one far from the one she once lived.
