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:
