Odd things, daily.
A Japanese man is planning to sell planet Earth to the highest bidder. The online bidding price was originally set at ¥69 ($0.86), but soon increased to ¥9,889,899,888 ($123,000,000). The product description explains that the seller was visited by God in a dream, who bestowed the planet to him.
In light of the difficult economic climate, the seller decided to earn some extra yen by selling our planet, which he now believes is legally his own property.
Planet Earth is listed as “authentic” and bidders have been warned of a strict “no return” policy. The seller also insists that all potential buyers include a message expressing their serious intent to purchase. If there is no message attached, he will consider the bid to be a prank. If there are too many prank bids he threatens to close the auction and start over again at ¥69.
