When Vintage really means Vintage

There's only one day left on an ebay auction for pair of vintage jeans that are over 100 years old. The jeans, which date from the 1890s, were found in an old mine in California, and are still covered in candle wax from the light the presumed owner was using down the mine.

The bidding currently stands at $8,700, which of course is a lot of money. But then, if you're the kind of person for whom money is no object, that's a pretty cheap price for a priceless piece of dinner conversation.

No word, of course, on what happened in the mine to make the miner take off his pants and never come back, which is probably the more interesting tale.

It doesn't mention that he took them off. Maybe they just left out the part about the dessicated body they removed from inside the pants....
