Jack Thompson’s Book ‘Out Of Harms Way’ gets in harms way…

This will be one of those things in history which will get a lot of coverage for the small thing that it is. However saying that, it deserves it, maybe not the book but for some the writer deserves alot. Jack Thompson, for those who dont know, is the man that has one of the biggest and most continual grudges against gaming, namely anything violent or sexual in nature. He’s written books, held forums, and gone as far as threatening to sue a lot of people and companies, and then sued some.

In every law suit, theres always someone who doesn’t like either party and in this case hatred for Jack is greater. Someone by the user name ‘charitablekarma’ has listed Mr Thompson’s book on eBay, but you’re not bidding for the book, no, you’re bidding on how it will meet its death. You can be as creative as you want but the seller says:

“The only exceptions to this are nothing involving genitalia, bodily functions, fluids, wastes, and I will not make anyone or animal consume it. Have fun with this, but keep it SFW (safe for work).”

Bidding on this item doesn’t fund the auctioneer in anyway, instead, all money goes to Get Well Gamers, an organisation which goes to help children at hospital by supplying consoles. Expect alot of coverage of this item and already bids remain at $75, and is expected to go well into 3 figures. Lets hope this act of destruction gets a lot of money for the needy organisation.
