Bidding begins on ‘entire life’

Mr Usher plans to make a fresh start

An ex-pat who decided to make a clean break after splitting with his wife has so far attracted 70 bids for his ‘entire life’.
Ian Usher, from Darlington, who emigrated to Australia six years ago, is selling his house, friends and job on internet auction site eBay.

The 44-year-old said he hoped to earn about £185,000 for his Perth lifestyle.
About five hours after bidding opened on Sunday, the highest offer was just over £314,000.
Up for auction is his three-bedroom home in the western Australian city and everything inside it, including his car, motorcycle, jet ski and parachuting gear.”

    The thought of not getting an offer at all is enough for me to take a pass on this kind of experiment 😀

    But I guess it takes the wind out of the sales of those who say you cannot put a price on a life…this would seem to suggest that everything has a price…
