Well, that's one way to pay tuition.
[Edit: They seem to have disabled it...a (really hot) 19-year-old girl was selling her virginity, and the bidding was over £3m.]

In other news...some relatively interesting stuff happened tonight. First of all, my parents managed to rope me into going to a game around ten. Basically, there were fifteen questions (things like "what's the one thing women notice about men?"), and a room full of 2-6 person teams. The object of the game was to give the most commonly given answer. Mom, Dad and I got maybe seven or eight questions "right"...and won first place, just ahead of a three-way tie. Of course, winning means we gave the most normal answers...I'm still pondering whether or not this is a Good Thing.

The scarier thing is that we almost won two or three more rounds--the winning answers were mentioned, but weren't picked.

Of course, the cruise line is cheap, so first prize was a bunch of bingo cards and a t-shirt each. Whatever.

So, then to karaoke. No, I didn't participate. But...

Okay, there was this woman up who was singing a country song. Badly. Really badly. I suddenly flashed to a scene from the James Bond movie Goldeneye--the horrible country singer in the Russian guy's bar.

Then the chorus started, and I realized that it was the very same song. I was so tempted to yell "who's strangling the cat?" (Bond's line in repsonse to hearing this horrible singing) once the song was over.

A few songs later, my sister and her friends went up on stage to do "Twist and Shout" as a group. We took blackmail photos with Mom's shiny new digital camera. Muahahahaha.

Anyway, I bailed out soon after my sister's group finished...someone went up and started singing "Macarena". Badly. x.x

...that link of yours is sad, really, on both parts. To sell your virginity and to pay that much for it... it's tragically and pathetically sad.

It was probably a prank anyways. Y'know, get a few pics from some pr0n site, write a nice description and point and laugh at bidders.

At least she might be getting money for it - like you said, it's one way to pay tuition. Or something. Meh.
