I can't be the only one wondering how owning this bad boy might change my writing style. This could go a lot of different directions: my career could really explode or it might just bomb out. The L3 Smith-Corona portable manual typewriter that Kaczynski used to type most of his documents, including the "UNABOM Manifesto," was seized by the FBI in April of 1996 and has been out of ribbon ever since. This is the first of 51 lots of Kaczynski’s personal belongings that the government will be auctioning off online beginning next week, just in case you've been hunting and pecking for some gruesome stuff. Pictures of these items have been posted on Flickr for our viewing enjoyment.
