NEED to get a life? Nicael Holt, a 24-year-old man from Wollongong, is selling his to the highest bidder.
All of Mr Holt’s worldly possessions, including his name, bed and clothes, are up for grabs on internet auction site eBay.
Bidding started at $1 on Monday and by 8pm yesterday had risen to $310.
Under the heading “New Life For Sale”, Mr Holt’s eBay site boasts of the skills, friendships and flirtations the new Mr Holt will be entitled to.
“Will introduce to all my friends and potential lovers (around eight which I have been flirting with),” he said.
“I have around 15 close friends and around 170 other friends. Friends will treat you exactly as they have treated me.
“This includes friends who take me surfing, running, climbing and cook for me. All of these features will be transferred over to the winning applicant.”
But there is a downside.
“I have two nemeses,” Mr Holt said.
And a disclaimer: “Please note winning bidder does not receive ownership of the following: degrees/qualifications, drivers licence, passport, future inheritance and formal/legal identity,” Mr Holt said.
On the upside, the winning bidder will take possession of 300 CDs, Mr Holt’s childhood photos, surfboard and a bike with wonky handlebars.
The new Mr Holt will also get a four-week training course including “training in becoming me”, “piercings to the value of $180” and “lessons in my personal history (the good and the bad stuff)”.
Bidding, by men or women, ends on Tuesday.
