Calling all Pirates!

My internet usage is mainly used for University research, blogging and occasionaly reading the news from different countries when i get the chance.
Today i happened to be reading a newspaper on line and came across a classic piece of news.
A 42 yold New Zealand man, whose right leg had been amputated due to diabetes, is trying to sell it to raise money for his daughter, who also has diabetes.
He has been keeping his leg, which is heavily tattooed, in the home freezer for well over a year!!!
He had the leg listed on a site called Trade Me! The leg had a reserve of $3000 NZ. Sadly the owners of the site thwarted his plans, saying it was distateful! The things you read!

till next time, Michelle.
