I guess people will buy anything. On a fluke, I thought I'd check to see if anyone sells these crazy disks.

What's really amazing, is someone actually placed a bid.

Some people collect them, apparently. A few of the discs are actually quite rare, having been released only to employees. There's one on there that comes in a nifty screw-on cast iron case.
You are in Soviet Russia. It is dark. Grue is likely to be eaten by YOU!

I'm sure some drunk and/or high college student will buy it.

I still regret my "Grooving to the 70's" CD collection I purchased on a whim one late night.

Wow.... our Archery society must have really pissed some people off then. We used to use AOL CDs for target practice. They shatter in a really satisfying way when hit with an arrow

Because they were free and easily available. I think we used quite a lot of Freeserve (UK ISP that gave out free CDs) CDs as well.
