Unabomber's Manifesto, Sunglasses on Auction Block

Last year, a Montana real estate agent was offering "Unabomber" Ted Kaczynski's "very secluded" 1.4 acre Montana spread for a pretty decent asking price of $69,500. It even came with chopped firewood. And now, the U.S. Marshals Service is putting a trove of Unabomber collectibles up for auction online, starting next week and running through June 2.


The lot includes his manifesto, a typewriter, a bow and a lot of arrows, some Tide laundry detergent, hiking boots, aviator sunglasses, assorted tools, some 20,000 pages of documents, and much, much more. In a nice little fuck you to the Unabomber, U.S. Marshal Albert Nájera had this to say in a statement about the auction:

"We will use the technology that Kaczynski railed against in his various manifestos to sell artifacts of his life. The proceeds will go to his victims and, in a very small way, offset some of the hardships they have suffered."

So in theory you could buy all of his junk, his cabin and then, well... oh, nevermind.
