r66tramp, if you read the notice at the beginning they say that it`s not Neverland but just some display area for the 2008 auction.

wiseman74 because this is mis-labelled, it`s at an auction house auctioning off his Neverland stuff, its not actually at his house.

That IS amazing...

How could his floors look so terrible?

What`s with the stains on the carpet by the "Zoltar" machine?

And how many wishes did MJ waste on that Zoltar Machine?

If that was mine, I would have filled it with vintage machines, like Pong and Space Invaders, and would have installed mostly electromechanical pinballs from the 50s and 60s.I would have also put in some really old one-arm-bandits and vintage vending machines (that old looking coke dispenser is a modern copy).

Heh, when you go to the section with the fortune tellers, there`s a statue of a butcher with his hands on his hips, I dunno about in the US, but in the UK they`re relatively common, there`s one outside my local butcher, heh.

*stares in awe* I`d have gladly put up with a traumatic stay at Neverland if it meant I could spend time in there. $h!t, he even has those creepy fortune teller thingies! That is one of the most [email protected] rooms I`ve ever seen.

Loxen: If your idea of "intruging debate" involves talking about whether or not a dead man was castrated because he had a high singing voice... I truly feel sorry for you. Your attempt at being an intellect: fail. All the way down to the "intruging". You think starting rumors that he was castrated is somehow above the comments about him being a pedo? Really? Pretty sure you`re playing in the same sandbox.

"Yeah, you`re right... I guess I should have thrown in one of the several Pedo comments and blended in, instead of sparking an potentially intriguing debate... (Man,what was I thinking?)"

Exactly...You just mentioned an interesting article you read! It WOULD explain an awful lot should it be true...Higher pitched voice, startling lack of body hair and probably a low sex drive which could certainly attest to why he didn`t think there was anything wrong sleeping with boys in the same bed, especially if he was trying to recreate his lost childhood with sleepovers.

Oh goodness, It`s all so confusing. I think we should let it be, it`s stressful trying to wade through all the muck lol

The media has become awash with coverage of the late King of Pop. This surprising and tragic event has left the world in shock and news networks
have scrambled to get any news they can.

i think people tend to forget that he had 3 kids (even if they weren`t his biologically) that lived with him maybe he just wanted somewhere he and his children could have fun. and as to the castration thing you people obviously have never heard him talk b/c despite having a soft voice it was deep and if he was castrated before puberty his voice would have never changed so. I think people are only saying this was weird b/c it was Michael Jackson if it was anybody else who had this game room it would ok heck if i had that kinda money I would have one

Ms_Thang (Female, 18-29) - "I would have let him do all kinds of things to me to get a chance at that play room ... too soon?"

Nothing personal, but as a 18-29 year old female, I don`t think he`d have been interested.

As far as too soon:

@ Loxen: agreed. Hardly a conspiracy theory...if that`s what sigma meant by "tinfoil hat." I like tinfoil hats...they make me look like Hermie from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.... :D

moving on, however: @sigma...the autopsy given to the public would probably not reveal castration. They could tell us that, but they probably wouldn`t. And castration doesn`t make you a ken doll--that would be a penectomy, removal of the penis. In which case he could get a prosthetic.

da da da.....The More You Know.

DemonDice, I`m almost sure the pun was intended. Usually people only say that when they`re speaking and can`t go back and think of a better way to say it.

Or you were trying to point out that you made a pun and wanted to make sure no one missed it. I do that all the time.

Everyone knows Michael was trying to regain the childhood he missed out on. Pop psychologists have been saying that for years. It`s the whole wanting to sleep with young boys that doesn`t really fit. Did anyone here look lustfully into their same-sex playmate`s eyes when they were little kids? I didn`t think so.

A troubled life doesn`t excuse bad behavior. Most of the people in jail didn`t have that great of a life.

Uh... This isn`t MJ`s basement. I decided to look at the rest of the website that the panoramas are on, and it says quite clearly in that section that the photos were NOT taken at Neverland Ranch. The photos were taken at the Beverly Hills location of Julien`s Auctions.

Still pretty effin` cool though!

A lot of people would love to have some of the games and memorabilia I`m sure, but the fact remains some of the items in that room were just not something a middle-aged man goes out of his way to buy.Did anyone notice what appeared to be an animatronic 10 year old with a basketball, and the various scale cars that you could(or at least a child) could drive. If NAMBLA set up a personal amusement park it would look like this.

" He wasn`t castrated because description of his genitals was part of testimony in his last lawsuit."
Hmm... but if he had prosthetic implants, would you be able to tell (if you weren`t specifically looking for it)? they do it for dogs/cats, its hilarious: http://www.neuticles.com/.

Additionally if they found he had implants could they even disclose that if it wasn`t part of the evidence they were looking for? I have no idea how that would work, tbh.

I read an interesting article the other day (submitted the link but it didn`t make the cut to IAB) about the possibility of MJ being a Castrato (a child singer who is castrated before they hit puberty in order to retain their high singing voice).
I wouldn`t put it past MJ`s dad to have that done to MJ either via a clinic or chemically to keep the money rolling in, and it would explain a LOT about MJ`s unusual life and seems to make a lot of things fall into place. It really makes you wonder. Hmmm...

ShadowRyder, you`re not surprised because it`s a common idea that pedophiles try to attract young boys to their basement. Geez, haven`t you seen Family Guy?

The newer episodes are horrible, by the way. If you`ve wathced from the beginning you know that the early episodes were funny. The new episodes are cheap gags and Seth spouting his political views.
