Woman Selling Soul on eBay, $2,000, Slightly Used

selling soul on ebay

A woman is selling her soul on eBay, listing her non-corporeal person for a mere two large in an auction that is almost sure to be pulled if it hasn’t been already.

The seller selling her soul on eBay is a woman identified only as Lori N., and she lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Ms. N. is a freelance writer, but suffered a major setback in a 2007 car crash.

Before selling her soul on eBay, Lori was in an accident, during which a drunk driver plowed into her vehicle. Lori’s body suffered some very severe damage, including the loss of a breast, a broken leg, hip, and pelvis, a collapsed lung, and a stroke.

Since the accident, Lori N. has struggled to get her writing mojo back, which is why she has resorted to selling her soul on eBay. Of her decision to sell her soul on eBay, Lori simply and sadly explains:

“I’m at the point now, I’m tired… I don’t feel good. I’m near the end of my rope… I really am.”

She tells an interviewer what she is offering in the eBay soul auction:

“What I’m gonna deliver is the opportunity for someone to save my soul. They can save it through prayer, they can save it through conversion. They’re also gonna get a certificate detailing the white and black marks on my soul.”

Previous auctions during which people had tried selling their souls on eBay have been halted by the online auction house, but it does not appear Lori’s auction has yet been stopped.

    Lori, Your soul was bought and paid for over 2 thousand years ago. I will pray that you are able to find and deliver your soul to the One who paid with his life for it.

    She's a writer but writes, "I don't feel good" instead of "I don't feel well"..

    Maybe one of the lawyers in my area could purchase it. They way they could brag that they actually had one.

    Maybe one of the lawyers in my city (who shall remain nameless) could purchase it. That way at least they could argue that they had one.

    Who would pay $2,000 dollars for a non existent soul? Did she lose a ton of brain matter in that car accident as well? She sounds suicidal she needs help.

    Our soul belongs to God. He said in his book that I have the power to case it into hell. He desires that we fear Him. Read all about him in his book.

    Answer:
    1. I don't feel good – the person is referring to his emotional state or how his day is going.
    2. I don't feel well – the person is referring to his physical state, that he is sick.

    Summary:
    "I feel good" and "I feel bad": When you are referring to your mood
    "I feel fine", "I feel well" and "I feel ill": When you are referring to your health.

    "I don't feel good" is most likely the more appropriate phrase for her to be using. Tsk tsk, do more research into the language. It's perfectly acceptable to say, “I'm good." While "well" is an adverb (and therefore modifies verbs) and that good is an adjective (and therefore modifies nouns), the situation isn't that simple. The key is to understand how linking verbs differ from action verbs.

    Action verbs. They're easy; they describe actions. Verbs such as run, jump, and swim are all action verbs. If you want to describe an action verb, you use an adverb like "well." Linking verbs, on the other hand, are a little bit more complicated. Linking verbs aren't about actions as much as they are about connecting other words together. They're also sometimes called “copulative verbs.”

    It's standard to use adjectives—such as good—after linking verbs. When you do it, they are called predicate adjectives, and they refer back to the noun before the linking verb. That's why, even though good is primarily an adjective, it is OK to say, "I am good": am is a linking verb, and you use adjectives after linking verbs. Aside from the linking-verb-action-verb trickiness, another reason people get confused about this topic is that well can be both an adverb and a predicate adjective.

    When you say, “I am well,” you're using well as a predicate adjective. That's fine, but most sources say well is reserved to mean “healthy” when it's used in this way. So if you are recovering from a long illness and someone is inquiring about your health, it's appropriate to say, “I am well,” but if you're just describing yourself on a generally good day and nobody's asking specifically about your health, a more appropriate response is, “I am good.”

    Unfortunately, no soul is worth a dime if you put a monetary value on it. Her soul is a little expensive. She needs to work at making her soul priceless, then she'll see the value in it.

    Sounds like a way to make money off of morons.

    Superman does good! She doesn't feel well! You're over complicating it. The only reason people write "feel good" or say "feel good" is because of pop culture making it more common place.

    Unless someone had some type of notarized transfer of ownership papers, this would seem kind of half-assed.

    Anyway, as far as buying/saving on eBay goes:

    If you see an item that you want listed in auction format, send the seller a message asking if they will accept $x to end the auction early and sell the item to you. If that doesn’t work, use a sniping service such as Bidball.com to bid for you. It’ll bid in the last few seconds, helping to save $ and avoid shill bidding.

    If there is a particular item that you want that is relatively rare on eBay or goes fast when one is listed, use ebuyersedge.com to set up a saved eBay search for it. You’d get an e-mail whenever a match is listed. You can use the price, category, exclude word, etc. filters to narrow down the results that you get in the e-mails. Excellent for “Buy It Now”s priced right.

    If the item that you’re looking for is difficult to spell, try a misspelling search site like Typojoe.com to find some deals with items that have main keywords misspelled in the title. Other interested buyers may never see them.

    Amen! Lord send someone to speak life to the dead areas in her life. You said we shall live and not die so Lord I pray that her spirit breathes again. Let YOUR will be done!

    You criticized her, I corrected you because you were incorrect by the rules of the English language. I didn't over think it, I explained something you didn't know! Embrace it.

  29. Nicholas Tran

    Totally agree with you here. She's right, Dan Artz. In fact, she's not overcomplicating it, she's just stating grammatical guidelines. Complication is only introduced when a judgment is made. The article refers to her statement about losing her "writing mojo," not about her health though she was in a car accident.

  30. Tina Darrell Campbell

    Ok fine…this heifer needs to check herself. She is going to even feel worse when no one bids a dime for her goofy ass. (Matt, is that better?) LOL!

    I found this to be interesting as I had just released my novel, Souled, on Amazon a few weeks ago, about a high school boy who buys a soul online. ( Link: http://www.amazon.com/Souled-ebook/dp/B008CL38OO/ ).

    I had originally intended to have my character purchase the soul on eBay, but eBay never responded to my numerous requests for permission to use their name. Now perhaps I know why. (I ended up purchasing my own domain name – eSouled.com).

    Whether or not my novel sparked the idea, I have no way of knowing, but the desire to buy or sell a soul is an act of pure desperation, as was in the case of this unfortunate woman. Souls are nothing to be messed with, as enough focused thought to buying or selling entities can open a huge can of worms and could have detrimental results. There are plenty of not-so-nice entities who aren't hanging around to do us any favors. Just sayin'.

    Thanks for your article.

    A man attempted to sell his soul in 2001 on eBay . The auction was pulled and eBay responded by informing him it was pulled because it violated their terms of an auction requiring something being auctioned to exist. He responded by asking how they could tell him his soul did or did not exist. eBay further responded by explaining if the soul did not exist he was violating terms selling nothing and if it did exist he was violating the terms of eBay that do not allow for human parts to be sold.

    Point being your book probably did not inspire this auction. Though it does sound interesting and as I am on my Kindle now,I'm going to go look into b it.

    forgive my typos my Kindle is being very difficult . a err g!!!
