If you win the eBay auction, you will be entitled to become an in-person spectator to this couple's home. I'm having a hard time deciding if auctioning this "prize" off is a stranger inclination than bidding on it. I wonder if the eBay founders ever thought their service would reach out to the nutjobs across America in such a profoundly personal way.

At first I thought we were bidding on the rights to watch a webcam of their home. That's surely been done. No, we're bidding on the right to actually go to their home and silently watch them eat, crap, read, screw, argue, mow the lawn, masturbate and watch TV.

Have you heard of this game called The Sims? It costs $35.
