For those of you who DON'T read Ariel' blog... You should.
Her most recent entry was about a guys in West Australia "selling his life"... on ebay (which might be the coolest thing in the world).
He literally auctioning off everything.
To quote Ariel, "His house, its entire contents, his friends (not really auctioning THEM but he'll introduce you to them), his vehicles, and his job. Why is he selling his life? He tells you at www.alife4sale.com . The auction is up to $309,300 and has 3 days left."
I think ... this guys has the right idea. I would totally do it if I were in his situation.
