Would they accept soul, slightly damaged, second owner, runs like new one? In the current economic climate, I doubt they can be choosy!

How do they track the purchase? One might have already sold the soul. They need a soul database. Ohh wait.....

I hope someone defaults so we can find out what the procedure is! You are absolutely, outrageously incorrigible.

I hope someone defaults so we can find out what the procedure is! I've been a member of this site for a long, long, long, long time........ I've read a LOT of things on here...mused on most all, commented on some, and kept quiet on more than can be counted. But what you just said is absolutely THE FUNNIEST one-liner I have EVER read on this website, and perhaps any other!!!!!!!!!!

report back asap so I just called them, turns out they think nothing of their weird proposal. A russian only speaking gentleman was surprised I even asked what's with the soul collecting stuff... I guess it's just over dramatized PR on their part. And no pledge from me could just mean they are trying to get some market share from institutions which does ask for some hock. here is their website (in russian): http://www.kontora.lv/

I'm not religious in the least, but no in HELL would I ever "loan" my soul out. Even if it doesn't exist, I wouldn't do it for the fact that no one, God or otherwise, but me will ever have rights to it. I don't think I could do it either. I'm glad I found this website. Nice to go somewhere that isn't flooded with "certain" other things right now.

How exactly do they claim one's soul?
