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)

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.
