Good stuff.I wonder when the people that started ebay as a web site for some silly collectible would have done it if they had of known what it was going to turn into. Sort of like breaking the code of the dead sea scrolls will trying to read the date on a worn coin.

The great dream has always been to become rich and or famous! but I personably want neither and thats the truth..........

seems that "thedrunkensailor" is somewhat of a celeb
and a pretty damn good businessman as well.

he developed such a following from the BB auction on EB
that he he now has folks sending him $1.50 a pop for his john henry on a cert of appreciation where the $ goes to buy him a frosty brew!

link to the auction: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=1469&item=2960761236

only wish i could tell how many have actually been purchased.

seems he is pretty damn savy for a drunken sailor. :p
