Buying a fighter jet on eBay

Some kid in England totally rules.

A 7-year-old boy from London recently – briefly – owned a real Harrier fighter jet. Which was almost the greatest thing that’s happened to a little boy since … ever. 



Unfortunately, he didn’t have $113,000 . Which sounds pretty economical, even without missiles.

Of course, his dad found out about his shopping spree, and the fun was over. Dad called up Jet Art Aviation Limited, the company that was selling the jet, and explained about his ambitious young man and his thirst for blood.

People complain about their kids not being ambitious. I’d be pretty proud if that was my boy.  And pretty frightened of what he might bring home next.
