OT: Original Ideas for making $$

As I mentioned before, I'm a fan of the show "Ghost Hunters", and as I was folding laundry this rainy Monday morning, I decided to look at the website for the show, which I had never looked at before. On the message board I read the funniest thing that I've seen in a long time. Take a look at the forum thread "possessed bear on ebay." And apparently bidding is at over $800. I have to admit that although I don't believe in demonic possession, the idea of it scares the shit out of me. I am still unable to sit through "The Exorcist." For the life of me, I can't understand why someone would want to buy a "possessed" item. I wanted to go to Ebay to get a look at the toy, but the guy warns not to have the picture around kids or animals, and since I've got both running around...better safe than sorry. Now who's the bigger tool, me or the guy who's going to make 800+ on this? And, if you've got time look at the "haunted box" thread, mostly for the poster who tells the story of his possessed underwear and Nike Sneaker.

If that isn't scary enough for a Monday morning, I'll leave you with this:

I've only been here once before (and it was a while ago) so forgive my ignorance if you're already aware of this, but did you know that your blog just kinda cuts off at the bottom? Right now the cover for Lord of Scoundrels is the last post and I feel like there might have been some commentary missing. And there was no footer info... And there's no sidebar. Did you know all of this already?

Just wondering.

I went to ebay to look up the bear and the link was not good. but I did look up "posessed bear" and there is some cheap copy cat imitation with some bad photoshopping. it was only at $25, though. -E.
