I know that going to school can be expensive, but I didn't know it was a million dollars expensive.
An entreprenurial student is selling 10x10 pixel blocks on his site for a buck a pixel (you have to buy at least one block minimum... a hundred bucks) for the purpose of putting himself through school (and I'm guessing a nice vehicle may be in the works).
Don't laugh. He launched the site in August, and as of right now he's cleared 900k. Wish I was that smart.
