Our Leisure Time in the Internet Age

I love trolling through Craigslist.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not an obsession. I don’t spend every waking moment there. But when I have a few minutes to kill that’s one of the bookmarks I occasionally visit.

You never know what you’ll find. This morning under motorcycles/scooters I spotted “Large gas powered train holds 5 people” located in Kansas, OK. How could I resist? You just have to click on this stuff. The train cars are made from 55 gallon drums.

Or last week I came across a jar of dirt. It was free.

The free stuff is sometimes a little crazy. Almost creepy. Like today’s post for “Fun random things,” that sounds a little scary to me. What sort of serial random murderer might be lurking behind that randomized email address?

A couple of months ago I saw a vintage BMW motorcycle. I sent it to a friend half-jokingly. Last week he called me up to tell me he’d just bought it. Which proves you must be very careful how you use this powerful tool. You can quickly put yourself, or a friend, in the poor house!

So remember- the ‘List has great power. Use it only for good, not for evil.
