    Aircraft carrier up for sale on Ebay

    If you fancy living in a decommissioned aircraft carrier, then a ship broker is offering a Swan Hunter model made during the Second World War with a great big flight deck for your domestic amusement.

    But don't think you can bombard your neighbours by organising sorties against them – all instruments of war have been removed.

    Even if you don't fancy using the aircraft carrier as your house, the vendors reckon the value of steel for scrap makes this a must buy.

    It comes complete with accommodation for 1,300 people, navigational instruments and the like. The bid currently stands at $8,200,201. With the US dollar so weak against the €uro, how can you resist not joining in?

    Details here

    It is at over 55 Million Dollars right now, and I just did a bid. I just hope someone will bid higher than me, because I realized that it will be too much money in gas for my car, to drive an hour to go to sleep to my ship

    Maybe i'll put a bid in so I can be "one of the bidders" Then I can print the page and show everyone "the big fish that got away". On second thought, what if I win! I'm sure my buddies over at techzonez will chip in to keep my record clean eh?

    heh, that's sick Rik. That reminds me of that old joke: Why fart and waste it, when I can burp and taste it.

    Looks like the aircraft carrier has been sunk.
