ALife4Sale – buy this guy’s life, if you don’t have one of your own

Ian Usher is auctioning his life to all-comers on 22nd June on eBay. The lot. His house in Perth Australia, car, jet-ski, everything. He’ll walk away with just his passport and the clothes on his back. Full details can be found on his site at www.alife4sale.com. The Internet sure is a weird place, huh? [Via Metafilter]

One thing I found really interesting was his video on driving one of those really HUGE trucks in the open cast gold mines in Australia. If you’ve ever wanted to know what that job entails, this is your chance. It looks like a bizarre game of Tonka toys with really big toys. And check out the related video clip of one of these monsters crushing a standard sized truck. Good grief.

 So now that I have been spurred into action by events in my life which have brought me to this point, I am pretty excited about the whole thing. I am looking forward to moving on, and shedding the past. I am excited about the future, and really having no idea where events might lead me. I love the adventurous nature of the project, and am excited about a new start. Don’t get me wrong. As I have said before, I lead a great life, and am very grateful for all that I have. I live in a beautiful city in a stunning country. I have the ocean, the city and the bush all within a half hour drive of my home. I have a great house in a lovely location, and I have some pretty exciting hobbies, and some great friends. Why give it all up? Well, there are too many reminders here for me…
