last day of the auction!

i'm reposting it here without all those pesky comments to wade through. if you think you've bid higher than what i have here, let me know, and, as i've been encouraging people locally, if you really want one, bid what you are willing/able to pay, not just the next $10 increment. it's all over at 5PM local time. thank you to everyone who has participated!
EDIT: to clarify, this does not mean i am taking "maximum bids" ala ebay. i am simply trying to get people to bid more. instead of going up $10 at a time or whatever, when the price is still ridiculously low, just bid what you want to pay and let it go from there. obviously, if you already have the high bid, this doesn't apply to you, unless you want to cement your win.

(no subject)

"...human bodies, each one a big sack of guts and fluids so highly compressed that it will squirt for a few yards when pierced. Each one is built around an armature of 206 bones connected to each other by notoriously fault-prone joints that are given to obnoxious creaking, grinding, and popping noises when they are in other than pristine condition. This structure is draped with throbbing steak, inflated with clenching air sacks, and pierced by a Gordian sewer filled with burbling acid and compressed gas and asquirt with vile enzymes and solvents produced by the many dark, gamy nuggets of genetically programmed meat strung along its length. Slugs of dissolving food are forced down this sloppy labyrinth by serialized convulsions, decaying into gas, liquid, and solid matter which must all be regularly vented to the outside world lest the owner go toxic and drop dead. Spherical, gel-packed cameras swivel in mucus-greased ball joints. Infinite phalanxes of cili beat back invading particles, encapsulating them in goo for later disposal. In each body, a centrally located muscle flails away at an eternal, circulating torrent of pressurized gravy." - neal stephenson, cryptonomicon
