I was reading an ad the other day by some guy who was looking to buy “alien artefacts”. He said he was willing to pay quite a lot for them, and he included some pictures of the type of thing he was looking for. Now, normally I would just ignore a silly advert like that, but one of the pictures looked exactly like this weird rock I found a while back. I’ve just been hanging onto it because it looked cool, but I never guessed it could be worth something!
There is a slight dilemma here, though – I don’t believe in aliens. Well, I believe in the idea of life on other planets, but I find the concept of space travelling creatures ridiculous. I’ve heard plenty of stories about alien visitors or abductors or invaders, but nothing to convince me that such creatures actually exist. So I’d feel bad about the idea of scamming a guy out of money in return for a slightly funky looking rock. I mean, I know it’s his money, and he can spend it on whatever he chooses, but all the same, it feels morally wrong.
What do you guys think? Should I sell it to him? I could really use some more cash, but I can’t make up my mind what to do here!
