Website of the Day: Things For Sale That I Will Mail You

Do you ever joke around with friends and say things like "If you pay me $5,000, I'll sail to China and back?" I know I have, at least after a beer or two, and now there's actually a legit site that brings fairytale fantasies to fruition.

Things For Sale That I Will Mail You lists personal assignments for artist David Horvitz to achieve, like asking for $2,443 to go to Iceland to find you three things or offering to go to a small Okinawan island for $1,626 to send you an envelope of star sand (this one is my fave). You can donate as much as you like, and once David receives the full amount, he adds the task to his "view all purchases" page. It not only lists all of the adventurous tasks he's fulfilled, but it includes the name of the person who paid for his trip. A very cool idea indeed.

My sister just made the mistake of giving this guy $2 in hopes that she can have a little bit of the sand. Then she read the details and it said you have to donate at least $100. This guy is out of his mind.
