    Need a soul? You can buy it off ebay.
    Wow it even has a picture. I wonder how much FedEx charges to ship 21 grams.
    What would you do with a soul you bought off ebay? Keep it in a jar on your desk? Sell it to the devil?

    Wasn't this specifically banned by eBay after a bunch of people tried it? What whack-jobs.

    I remember someone trying to sell their kidneys on ebay a while back even though selling body parts is not allowed on ebay. I'm not sure about metaphysical or intangible body parts though. :rolleyes:

    I don't think that you're allowed to sell anything of which you do not have physical possession, a messure targeted specifically at the "soul sales." Wow, selling your kidneys?! That's a lot MORE disturbing than selling a piece of paper claiming to be the deed to your soul.

    *laughing like a dumbass* It's amazing that the seller can represent so many things about it with actual numbers. Damn, this is great! :D

    Wow, I wonder how the idiot plans on releasing his soul (offing his own ass) and then capturing it for overnight delivery.

    Would be nice of him to also have his ashes delivered in an urn along with the soul.

    I think someone here should create an ebay account with the name of Satan, Lucifer, or Beelzebub(maybe not Beelzebub because I doubt that this guy would know what it means) and buy this guy's soul for $0.50. I would but since I'm under 18 and ebay doesn't want people under 18 signing up.
    Imagine how wierd it would be if you were the seller and the Satan bought your soul. :eek: Creepy.

    Have you noticed noone wants to pay much for it.....

    How much would a man give for his own soul?

    Apparantly only 50 cents

    Actually the number 666 has less to do with the Devil and more to do with Nero.

    How 'bout $5. Then I can trade the soul to the guy at the comic book store for a handful of Alf Pogs. :D *Simpsons Reference*

    who cares about the Simpsons reference...You mentioned POGS!!!! I had totally forgotten about that critical middle school fad until someone mentioned them a few weeks ago. Now I'm beginning to recall how essential it was to get a great slammer (or whatever they're called)...It just brings a tear to the eye.

    Pogs weren't that big of a deal as much as I can remember. I never really got into them. I think that fad lasted about a month at my school.

    Yes, isn't everything?

    A quick google search confirms that indeed it was. Episode 132, aired on October 8, 1995.

    Yup. Actually his full name is Neron and that is the 666. When the shortened version of his name is used, Nero it is 616. Things they don't tell you in Sunday School ;)

    cant remember where i heard this: when you add up the ascii numbers of the words "bill gates" and then add 3 to the total (bill gates is william gates the 3rd btw) it totals 666. that may have been on lem or something...

    A brother of a friend once sold his friendship on eBay. They removed it the first time around, but he listed it again and said "Hey eBay! The buyer actually gets this:" and he had a a scan of a piece of paper with "I Joe C. will be your friend" on it. Then he put a big red "Sample" watermark on it. It was hilarious :D

    That's right, but these numbers can already be found in the Bible (Revelation 13,18) where you can read about a beast with two horns coming out of the earth, with the 666 as the number of this beast. In another translation the 616 can be found at this place, which makes it even more interesting...

    What interesting is that even though we can translate it, no one really knows what Revelations is actually talking about - I mean it was written in code so that Nero couldn't get a hold of it. Modern scholars assume, with rightful justification in my eyes, that it is about Nero --- Religious studies fascinate me :)
