If you're in the market for a couple of ghosts trapped in vials of holy water, online auction site TradeMe has a listing for you. The seller claims the vials contain spirits that were exorcised from his home. Bidding has reached $NZ410 ($284), and has generated quite a list of comments ranging from how to get rid of the ghosts, to the ethics of selling a captured immortal essence. From the article: "The seller claims that one spirit belongs to a man who died in the house in the 1920s. 'We have had no (paranormal) activity since they were bottled on July 15, 2009,' the seller said. 'So I believe they are in the bottles.'"
