Wow.

The current bidder when I checked, bidded $21,000 to be weightless with Steven Hawking!!!!! Someone's making some money on this! "100% of the proceeds from this auction will benefit Starlight Starbright Children's Foundation." www.starlight.org What I find interesting is not that the bid is$21.3k--

-what I find interesting is that over 47000 have viewed the auction

(number near bottom of page)

(From what I've seen, the average for the 'viewed' on a general item may be around 50-150)

probably got listed on digg or fark

It is up to 25K now

A flight with out Steven is only $3500, I thought it would be more. It is going for a good cause so, get bidding. GedankenExperiment: If you had a chance to choose an 'experience' (let's not get too weird here) with someone----- who (someone that is still living) would it be? what would it be? and, how much would you pay for the experience? I went through a few before deciding that I would like to meet with Professor Sheldon Glashow for a day and I'd give a week's pay for the meeting.

There's not much of a real chance for our meeting to take place but he would be my first pick. Price?Well,I wouldn't mind spending$50 000 for one hour chatting with him.

Mrs. Houdini probably spent more than that with no luck.
