Oh that crazy craigslist!

Thanks * Giz* for this one:

If you're located in Northern Alberta, are interested in space travel, aren't afraid of heights and need $25,000 (and won't mind when you explode in mid-air and can't spend it), have I got a Craigslist ad for you!

What's especially great is the half-assed trustworthiness of the ad: The creator worked on it for 40 years! He's a scientist! He uses words like "fuselage!"

My secret space craft is the result of my professional experience and imagination while serving the U.S. military in advanced aeronautics as a scientist. The craft harnesses a revolutionary propulsion system and its fuselage is fabricated with the most advanced material. While considerably safe, I am certain you will make it safely to Titan but there will not be enough fuel to get home. This is for someone unique that has always wanted to see the universe first-hand and has perhaps a terminal view on life here at home. Here's your shot at romantic history.

Unfortunately, this is a Laika-style journey: You ain't coming back from this one. That is, if you actually get off the ground.

*UPDATE*- Apparently the link above for the add is now broken as craigslist has taken down the ad. Oh well its still funny.
