I posted this on misc.forsale, and got replies suggesting I send it here:

a friend of mine just got back from Europe and has some pieces of the Berlin wall for sale ... if you are interested please write back ... I think that he wants $10 each including postage.
Seems to me, Berlin Wall pieces are a great investment! Here's what you do. Buy a chunk for $10. Cut it up into ten smaller chunks. Sell each one for $10, for a profit of $90.
Here's an idea inspired by recent net/world events:
The Berlin Wall Chain Letter
Simply send a piece of the Berlin Wall (going rate is $10) to the Dictator at the top of the following list. Then remove him from the list, and add your self at the bottom. In a few weeks, you'll be receiving thousands of pieces, enough to build a wall around your own country!
1) Deng Hsiao Ping 2) Manuel Noriega 3) Mohamar Khadafi 4) Daniel Ortega 5) Nicolae Ceausescu
P.S. If any of the above dictators are no longer in power, please remove them from the list; it's getting difficult to keep it up to date lately.
