You can do just about anything on the Internet nowadays–buy, sell, share intimate details about your life that (trust me, I say this with the utmost respect) very few of us want to know, and so much more.
So it may come as a surprise to some that there still are some standards. Yes, it’s true there are some things you cannot do on the Internet.
So, what’s something you can’t do on the Internet? Sell your soul on eBay (no word on Amazon’s policy on such transactions).
This is not news. The website set this incredibly specific standard back in 2000. It falls under their policy which bans the auctioning of human parts and remains (slightly more disturbing), and of course presents an ideological discussion concerning the existence of the soul which we could talk around all day, but that’s another blog.
You may be appalled that anyone would try to sell their soul in general, but morality and ideology aside, what I find most disturbing is the fact that people bid on souls on eBay.
I think we could make quick-work of finding many of the sadists (possibly Satan himself) out there by rounding up the eBay soul bidders. You have to be desperate (for attention or other things) to sell your soul, but you have to be truly twisted to bid on one.
