The "American dream" is real. You know how we're convinced? Because you can buy and sell it. 29-year-old Shane Butcher is selling all of his earthly possessions—his "entire life"—on eBay for a modest $3.5 million. If you want to spend three-and-a-half Ms on the "American dream," go right ahead.
Here's a list of what Butcher is selling:
3 R.U. Game? video game stores in Tampa, Brandon and Gainesville, as well as their webstore. A two-bedroom townhouse on Tampa Bay
2009 Honda Accord
2006 Honda Element
2006 Lotus Elise
Not 1, not 2, but 2 kayaks!
A one bedroom rental condo
Everything in the homes including electronics, appliances, and furniture. Butcher and his family will only keep their clothes, family photos, and a few personal keepsakes. The deal also includes rent for all three stores, and a six month period in which he'll teach the buyer how to operate the stores.
So, there you have it—everything, except for his wife, kids, and dogs. If you're wondering why he's selling his "life," he explains it like this: "If you build a castle, it's awesome to sell it and then start building another one, hopefully bigger and better."
Also, the listing is a private add, not an auction. The items will be sold to the first person willing to give up that $3.5 million. So, yes, you can put a price on life.
