I thought I'd seen it all, until a minute ago:

This si probably old news to some of you, but I found it really comical!

The guys an idiot. If I recall correctly, he was hawking one of those Lou Serrano type ' let's sell success and marketing even though you've never heard of me packages'. I asked him about his million dollar illusion. He claimed (several months) ago that he felt the price was fair and claimed that he had people interested in buying it. Apparently not.

It's been on eBay for a long time. If he does sell it, he probably doesn't look like an "idiot" any longer. Problem is, I think Paris Hilton's fifteen minutes of fame is long gone...

Well, Brad, you can make an offer and possibly "win" this prize for a lot less than he is asking. Make an offer and let us know how you did.

I believe (based on how long it's been up there, and how completely ridiculous his premise is)that he has it up there at that price expressly to have his listing show up in the #1 spot on ebay when one searches for "magic" with the menu selecting "highest price first", which is how many folks do their searching on ebay.

In other words, his listing has nothing to do with selling anything, and everything to do with using that #1 spot as a free promotional tool.

He used to post on the Cafe and here on Genii, and he had a somewhat "unique" approach to magic and mentalism.

It's entirely possible to be an idiot and sell something for too much to a fellow idiot.
