I wish I knew how to post a news article.  Since there has been so much discussion about the FL raffle, I thought I'd post this:

A Florida man determined to turn his life around has put his soul up for "sale" on his website, saying the return on investment could beat the most-generous Vegas slot machine.

Gerald Fraller, 28, of Tampa, Fla., who has created the "Win My Soul" website to raffle off his soul, likened the deal to a business contract. "In the corporate world, people invest in companies all the time by purchasing shares of stock," Fraller wrote on the site. "In a sense, they are investing in the business' future, its potential, its value and its intellectual property. So, it occurred to me, why couldn't someone do the same with an individual. Only in this case, a single stockholder reaps all the benefits of my potential value through ownership of my soul."

The rest of the story is here:

    That's about the weirdest thing I've ever heard and I really don't understand the "rewards" the winner gets.  I don't know how much tickets are going for but I guarantee I won't be buying one.  His "soul" sounds like one of a scam artist.

      Indeed it does Rick G. - and a scam artist creating very bad karma for himself at that! 

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

          Saw him on TV.  He has a story that would depress anybody, you know, nobody ever cared for or loved me etc.  Well, I would have told him that God loves you and he is going to be p^%$#d off for selling your soul.  Oh well, do you think Borat sold his soul?  LOL jarasan.
