My cell phone is worth $32,000
It has come to my attention that my cell phone, the Nokia 1100, released in 2003, with its tiny monochrome screen and inability to access the internet may very well be worth $32,000. So laugh all you want, iPhone users, with your piddly sub-ten-grand phones. You might wonder how this came to be. Well, according to wikipedia:
The phone can be programmed to receive messages directed to a different phone number, thus receiving sensitive bank or other data.
Now, this can only be done with a batch made in a factory in Bochum, Germany, and I have no idea whether that's where mine came from, so I'll cut you a deal. I'll start the bidding at $31,000.
