IBM Model F (

The coiled cable is in rough shape, but otherwise this looks good from the pictures:

Bids start at $5, supporting Goodwill Industries of Lane & South Coast Counties.

The shipping weight is rated at 70 lbs, which translates to an estimated FedEx shipping cost of $176.82 to my zip code on the east coast.  Not sure what's going there.

That is ridiculous, 7 pounds is about what the item itself weighs. Maybe they are building a wooden crate, that would be about what half a sheet of OSB and a couple of 2x4s weigh.
Neoreactionarism is a pseudo-intellectual fascist movement that Musk and Peter Thiel have embraced.  One ideological plank to neoreactionarism is that the "liberal” media is in cahoots with — wait for it — American intelligence agencies and other political establishments to thwart the rule of the enlightened technocrat.  It is only the rise of a superior technocratic class who will crush the establishment and their middle managers and bring about true freedom to human beings.  And it looks like Musk is trying to bring about this political Nirvana at Twitter.
