Via an online Government Auction, the U.S. Marshall Service has announced it will auction off over 20,000 pages of original documents produced by Ted Kaczynski aka THE UNABOMBER.
Auction dates are May 18th thru June 2nd, so at some point you will need to be with your favorite mobile device and witness some online insanity. Of course, shocking prices will abound and fall... appropriate to both the crime and U.B's demise.
Included amongst the Lots will be the infamous "Manifesto" in which he blamed the industrial and technological revolutions for most of the ills of mankind... or at least the issues he had with both his TIVO Instruction Booklet and Microsoft's Operating Manual.
And exactly how dollar broke is the Government to hold this Homegrown Terrorist Garage Sale? And can the memorabilia of John Wayne Gacy, Ted Bundy or Jeffrey Dahmer be far behind?
And where are they storing all this shit? I swear, we have more Underground Bunkers than Hitler had dental floss.
Now I am not making this stuff up, you know. You can visit the Marshall Service's website to see the various artifacts that the multitudes will be clamoring to bid upon.
However, in the spirit of bad taste (the Government's, not mine), I would like to offer the vintage stylings of the UNABOMBER for less.
Let's face it: You want the typewriter on which he pounded out his rants... those sunglasses, that sweatshirt. He looks the bad White Rapper, L.M.N.O.P.
Like the Nightmare on eBay Street, you know you'll be outbid at the last freakin' second. You can turbocharge your Auctionsniper software, but you will not be scoring on your precious WANTS... 'cuz when it comes to crazy, cult killers and dead celebrities are the stuff that insane bids are made of. And countered.
Trust me: I once sold Sharon Tate's High School Yearbook-- The crazies came out of the woodwork like termites with bidding paddles. A saavy Charles Manson collector was the winning bidder, by the way; rather friendly bloke.
So here's your chance to have that UNABOMBER LOOK FOR "A LOT" LESS... 10 LOTS IN FACT. Let the insanity begin...
