    Everybody run! This guy has got to be joking. How can you enjoy $50,000 if you have no back skin?!?! :confused:

    This guy isn't a veteran he's only like 50 at the most.

    Three things:

    1. This further validates my choice never to live in Utah. Ever.
    2. That we may not be paying our Veterans enough.
    3. That I originally thought this was going to be a lot more macabre than it is...it seems as he is just another potential human billboard.

    ebay - it's like a cyberspace bus station. meh.

    I'm pretty sure he could be a veteran... Vietnam, Gulf War, etc?

    He could have been honorably discharged from the first Gulf war. That would make him a veteran.

    Looking at his picture, he's definitely a military Veteran, very possibly the Marines. He could also be a veteran Vietnam. It depends on if he made a career of the military and when he was discharged, as to what war fronts he actively participated. Could also have had time in the Reserves.

    IMHO he just wants to earn some extra money. Actually who doesn't. He probably got the idea from the pregnant lady that was willing to use her belly for advertisement purposes.

    I'm relieved. When I saw the title of this thread I thought the guy was going to actually sell his skin. (cut it off and sell it)

    That actually ran through my mind also until I read the full page. Quite a misleading title indeed.

    Yes, I could have probably done better on the title, but if your not sure what you are reading on the website it can sound a lot like he is actually selling his skin...


    From ebay -"i am willing to sell the skin surface on my HEAD"
    and -"Will arrange for local pickup only (no shipping)."


    :rolleyes: :cool:
