Man Sells Life, Has Time Of His Life

HONG KONG (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – After selling his life on eBay, one man is using the money to live out his wildest fantasies.

Last June, Ian Usher decided he’d had enough of his life and sold everything – his house, belongings, friends, and even his job – for roughly $290,000 on eBay.

Now, he’s using that money to complete 100 things he’s always wanted to try in 100 weeks, including juggling fire clubs, meeting Sir Richard Branson, and getting into a tomato fight in Spain.

His adventure is chronicled on 100goals100weeks.com.

So far, Usher has completed 42 of his goals, including swimming with hammerhead sharks in Japan and having a wild hawk land on his hand.

He’s working to accomplish tasks like going on a nude skydive and walking on the wings of an airplane mid-flight.

Though some goals have been more challenging than others, Usher says they’ve all been “immensely satisfying.”
