    17 year old in a Porsche? I don't even think they'd insure him.

    So if the value of the Porsche was 7,000 then this would imply that the average craigslist trader loses 500 dollars or makes 500 dollars by trading.... 7,000 divided by 14 trades.... and assumes the phone he started with was worth nothing.

    Kind of makes me wonder just how many stupid people out there there are.... scary really.

    It is just human nature ... We are always looking for THAT bargin and if it means loosing out a bit, a lot of people dont mind.

    It says donation, but is asking £90000 (USA).... hmm, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it illegal to buy/sell body organs?

    If the laws have loosened on this, I found the guy who stole my motorised bicycle. Would anyone like to buy his heart?
