Am I the only one who likes looking through weird corners of Craigslist in other cities? It feels a little voyeuristic, like popping around random places on Google Maps' Street View. That's how I found out that for my current rent, I could be living in a three-bedroom in "the nice part" of Kansas City, which was enlightening and also super depressing. My current apartment shares ventilation with the pierogi factory next door, which means some mornings my bedroom smells like caramelized onions (nice!) or boiled cabbage (not so nice).

It's also how I found this bad boy:

This is a fully functioning pirate ship that "Gets more attention then a million dollar speed boat that is a proven fact." Needless to say, the Richmond, VA, Craigslist is an absolute treat. The entire listing is amazing, but also I have a lot of questions. Like:

How good is the stereo? It must be super good to be in the listing title.

It says "Trades considered." Do we think the entire contents of the xoJane beauty closet would cover it?

If I set up a GoFundMe to buy this pirate ship and move the xoJane offices onto it, would you donate?

Is there a better time than nearly October to buy AN ACTUAL PIRATE SHIP with "Background LED lights to give it a spooky look at night"?!

If you, dear reader, buy the pirate ship, can you write It Happened To Me: I Bought A Fully Functioning Pirate Ship and That's Where I Live Now, Mateys?

What's the weirdest/best thing you've ever seen for sale on Craigslist?
