    Interesting marketing tactic - price it so far out there that it's get some attention, then lower the price to something more reasonable.

    I mean, regardless of the item, who wouldn't want to tell their friends that they negotiated the price down from $595K to $30?

    I sent message asking if they would accept a bridge over the East River as payment.

    Q:
    I own several bridges across the East River in New York City. Would you accept one of them as payment?

    ^^^That's okay. Suggest you'll sign over the bridge as payment, and he can send the component as well as $100,000 in gold bullion. And he can pocket the difference.

    EDIT: Of course, you should still insist on a free t-shirt.
