I was the highest bidder at $1.99 for a small portion of the Berlin Wall, bought from ebay. Who knows if it’s "real" or not — i just love the idea that i get a chunk of the rock and it’s claiming to be real. My suspension of (dis)belief is a funny thing.

I got it in the mail yesterday and it comes with its own little certificate of authenticity (mass printed, mass produced) and the rock looks like just about any other cement-based chunky rock. I love it. It’s both special and totally unspecial. Just like I thought it would be.
