This one is straight out of the headlines. Well... almost. A Florida man is auctioning off his life on eBay to the tune of $3.5 Million. [more info] Unlike Ted though, his offer comes with a house, a condo, 3 cars, 3 kayaks, 100's of games and videos, 3 Game stores, a website, employees, etc. The houses are furnished, HOA fees and store leases paid for a year and this guy gives you 6 months of his time to serve as a mentor while you learn the business. All for a cool $3.5 Million.
Reading other articles about "Shane" this guy doesn't need the money. He's a self made millionaire. The business is profitable. And if no one buys his life, he's perfectly content to continue running the stores and making money himself. So why would he sell his life? The jaded "dick roommate" in me says he has no intention of selling and that this is just a cheap way of getting massive, free publicity for his stores.
I'm not about to fault him for that.
As a matter of fact, if you want to assume Ted's life, you're more than welcome to buy your way into his non-existent shoes. You can live in my tiny, extra bedroom, borrow the car when it's available, play all my games, be confounded at my lack of credit cards, mock me for my lack of game playing prowess, take control of Ted's facebook and GU Forum accounts, and spend as much time as you like in the new shed. And I won't even ask for $3.5 million. I'd be fine with 1% of that. You will however need to be funny on command.
While we're talking about money, a friend of a GOOD friend of GU works for Brass Monkey, a developer focused on on developing titles that can can be run in any web browser. Well, their newest project is called Dragons Gameboard and Brass Monkey is funding its development by way of Kickstarter. If you're a D&D (or RPG) nerd. You'll dig it.
