Description
This is an auction for the Internet.

Yes, YOU can own THE ENTIRE INTERNET!

With over a hundred million users, the Internet is the largest computer network in the world. As estimated by professional business accountants, the total value of the Internet is so great that IT CAN NOT BE CALCULATED! In other words, THE INTERNET IS WORTH MORE THAN THE ENTIRE EARTH PUT TOGETHER!! Thus, the owner of the Internet is automatically THE RICHEST MAN(or woman) IN THE WORLD!

In addition to having the honor or being the richest person ever born, the owner of the internet gains many other privileges, including:

* Use Restriction - Does your next door neighbor play really loud music at night? GET REVENGE! Ban him from the Internet!

* Free Internet Access - Since you own it, you can use it for free...FOREVER!

* Domain Names - Want your homepage to be www.yahoo.com? It's yours FOR FREE!

* Taxation - Charge users by the hour or even by the packet! That'll teach those irc kiddies to ping flood!

* Administration - Close the Internet on your birthday(or when ever you feel like it)! Charge a per-computer fee for Internet use!

* Business - Have geocities-esque popup ads advertising your company on EVERY PAGE ON THE NET!

The Internet is a great buy at any price. Even if you have no interest in becoming a global force overnight, THE INTERNET MAKES A GREAT GIFT! The Internet would make a perfect Christmas(or Huachuca!) gift for:

- EVIL DICTATORS
- PORN ADDICTS
- WAREZ JUNKIES
- TERRORISTS

The initial price I have set for the 'net is a mere one million dollars. At this price, how can you not afford to buy it? You can make over a mil by annexing and then reselling ebay.com alone! As always, NO RESERVE!

Mail me at owner@theinternet.com if you have any questions! PLEASE, SERIOUS BIDDERS ONLY!!!

Enter your maximum bid
Remember to type in numbers only and use a decimal point (.) when necessary. Don't include a currency symbol ($) or thousand separator. For example: 1000000.00

Bid efficiently with Proxy Bidding — here's how it works:
Your maximum bid is kept secret, and it's not necessarily what you'll pay. eBay will bid on your behalf (which is called proxy bidding) by steadily increasing your bid by small increments until your maximum is reached.
Why? Because it means you don't have to monitor the auction as it unfolds. You also don't have to worry about being outbid at the very last minute unless someone bids over your maximum dollar amount. Want more details? Check out an example of proxy bidding.
Choose your maximum carefully, though, as you won't be able to reduce it later.

Your bid is a contract
Only place a bid if you're serious about buying the item; if you're the winning bidder, you will enter into a legally binding contract to purchase the item from the seller.
