Well, it never amazes me what some of us crazy New Yorkers dream up in attempts to make a little money and get what we want. An artist couple has created a site called Wants for Sale where they are trying to get exactly want they want. What they do is make a painting of the item they want (anything from an iPhone to some chicken), set its price at the cost of the actual item, sell the painting to someone and then buy the actual item with their profits. It's a pretty clever scheme, and seems to be working for them based on the items they show as now having.
Here's something I want: a flat screen LCD TV. I'm too lazy to paint a picture though, anyone want to just buy it for me?
