Jar of Air From Stone Roses Concert Can Be Yours for $95K
Looks legit.   (eBay)

What's weirder than a 1970s quarter priced at $35,000 on eBay? A jar of air going for nearly $100,000. Of course, it's not just any jar of air: The sample was taken from a Stone Roses concert held Saturday in the UK, and it features "all the atmosphere, anticipation, and ecstasy of 60,000 people singing their hearts out" at Manchester's Etihad Stadium, per the eBay listing. The air was jarred up during the band's rendition of "I Am the Resurrection," and the seller notes that "I swear if you place your ear next to the jar you can still hear the faint reverberation of [guitarist John] Squire's solo."

The jar of air currently has gotten a "staggering" 90 bids, the Telegraph reports, and the highest one tops $95,000. The jar comes with a certificate of authenticity (it's not clear from which vetting organization), though it does carry one warning for the eventual winner of the auction, which ends June 26: Keep the jar out of direct sunlight. One question posed on eBay: "Do you think I could get high off it?" Answer: "There may be better options price wise for doing that." (Some of the weirdest eBay auctions ever.)
