(Don't drink the) Kool-Aid Packet

Here is an auction for a Kool-Aid Packet on ebay. It's had almost 20,000 views so far, and is at the top of the ebay pulse chart. What's so special about a packet of Kool-Aid? Well, nothing really, other than a large number of the 913 people found dead at the 'Jonestown massacre' were found to have drunk Kool-Aid laced with poison. Or did they? According to Wikipedia those at Jonestown actually drank a brew of Flavor Aid, a lesser known brand. Kool-Aid was just a better known brand at the time, unfortunately for them, as the name "Kool-Aid drinker' has become a term for crackpots and kooks.

Don't drink the Kool-Aid! But if you want to here the link. :)

*Edit: Sold for $2,025.01 after 54 bids
