However to entice you further into buying all my stuff in one lot, I will add unlimited and unrestricted use of my brain for a period of three months*. I have a couple of degrees and have been in the IT industry for over 8 years. I am also a radically resourceful person and have some abilities most employers would die to utilize. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. Usage will be agreed upon via contract. I also have a masters certificate from a school at UC Davis in Beer Making.

Since when did schools offer masters degrees in beer making?

I wonder if she makes her own yeast.

I bet this auction gets pulled.

I always wondered what it would be like to just sell everything I owned and start over. I'd at least keep a few sets of clothes though. This guy is going for all or nothing!

Hmmmm, it would be a drive for me, but it may be worth a bid towards the end.

It's like 10 minutes away from me, but I don't want that crap.

Maybe he's gonna take all the money and put it all on one spin of the roulette wheel at the Montecito in Las Vegas.

Is anyone seriously considering this? It really wouldnt hurt to try if you get the buyers insurance. I guess its not hard to believe someone whos just sick of it all and wants a fresh start.

Look at his feedback. He's gotten quite a few negs recently. From people saying he didn't send them what they bought. Imagine if you actually buy this and he won't give it to you.

First thing I noticed. Only about 15 feedbacks and almost half are negative.

3 hours left and less than 4k currently. Seems definitely worth at least that much. Since you pretty much have to go and pick the stuff up in person, I'd assume you could just pay for it in person too, so he couldn't really screw you.

I am no laywer, but Ebay does warn that your winning bid is a binding contract. And for all this guy is offering for sale, it's not like a DVD or something, this auction could be worth going to court over. So if he didn't honor the auction, how much legal hot water would or could he be in?

And it did close for a great amount, considering all the crap he was offering. Hell, the two cars alone make it a good buy. And he promises to ship all these items world wide. I might be tempted to leave this on my favorites list for a while and email the winner to see if he got anything after 60 days or so.

As if it was a surprise that the auction was fake. Still, the winning bidder leaves a negative comment after 3 days? A little early. If the auction actually was real, it'd take alot more then 3 days to complete.
