If you happen to be in Sacramento tomorrow and Saturday, do the state a favor and give them some money in exchange for some official government crap. Back in July, Governor Schwarzenegger announced that they would be selling government stuff--cars, computers, other crap--to help offset the billion dollar deficit. Then someone on Twitter suggested that he sign some of the items to raise the value and he went, paraphrased, "OMG, such a g00d idea! Keep the ideas coming, Twitter pals!"

So here we are with a State of California webpage dedicated to the garage sale with listings on eBay and Craisglist. A Chevrolet Chevy 8-Passenger Van '98 Signed by Gov Schwarzenegger with 124,995 miles is going to cost you $2,861.00. Oh, and with 98,983 miles on it, you can get a Civic Honda Civic Hybrid '03 Signed by Gov. Schwarzenegger for $8,400.00!
