    Aw man, I live not too far away from there! Well, $100 to see a band I'm not really interested in...

    However, if they were Metallica or Primus tix... :D

    I sympathise with him....I lent my car to my college roommate exactly once. She had a job interview, her VW Bug was on the fritz, and I was taking the bus to work, so I wouldn't need the car that day. Well aware of her aggressive driving habits, I made her promise and swear that she wouldn't drive my car as if it was her own, that she would be careful, that she'd not tailgate or screech away from lights or quick-change lanes or any of the other stuff she usually did.

    So, of course, she made it a block from the house before rear-ending a pickup.

    The hood was completely bent, one headlight shattered, the grille damaged, and the bumper dented. Her excuse: the windshield, when hit by the early morning sunlight, prevented her from seeing the pickup because it was in the shadow of a tree, because *I* didn't keep my windshield clean enough. She only looked away for a second, honest!!

    Insurance paid everything, but needless to say she never asked to borrow my car again. :D It's one of those stories we laugh about now.

    Do you think his wife realises he has called her a bitch on several occasions?

    I remember that Ford very well. A classmate of mine owned one in red with the black convertible top. A nice ride during the summer.

    Note to remember if you are listing on eBay, don't use the product.

    Now that is an item that I could really bid on. Looks like a really nice taxidermy job.

    A few months back, somebody put up for sale a jar of toothpaste. Yes. A jar. They had taken God knows how many tubes of Aquafresh toothpaste and squeezed them into a massive glass jar.

    A guy who works for Alias told me today that somebody put a sphere modeled in Maya up for auction. This is the most primitive 3D shape, one which anyone using Maya could create in a split second. Yet somebody was getting bids for it!

    I did a search just now, and it doesn't appear to be in eBay anymore. Too bad.

    That is too bad, I was thinking that it would be nice to see what it look's like. Do you know how much was the selling price?

    I don't know the price it was selling for. But here are some shapes I made in Maya. It took many seconds to make these three wireframe objects, and they must be worth at least 3 times a single sphere. I'll sell 'em for millions! ;)
