Heaven’s Gate Revisited

Remember Heaven’s Gate, that group of foofy cultists who thought they could commit suicide and be picked up by a spaceship trailing along in the wake of Hale-Bopp? Turns out the one guy who left before the suicide wants to cash in on the cult and have them remembered. He’s selling the Ford van they used all the time … on eBay. His reserve is $39,000.

Mind you, I like Ford’s big vans. But $39 large? Right. Only if Jesus Christ himself rolled in it down the Vegas strip, baybee.

I’d not make fun of cultists, but some times, it’s just tooooooo darn easy.
