yardsale(Newser Summary) – Just how bad has California’s budget crisis gotten? So bad that it’s holding what it’s calling the “Great California Garage Sale” this weekend, hoping to unload piles of junk and wasteful property that the state’s accrued over the years. Hundreds of items will be available, from BlackBerrys to desks to cars and CHiPs motorcycles,  [Governor] Arnold Schwarzenegger has even signed some of the items to drum up interest.

A few things have already been listed on eBay and Craigslist, because California is hip like that. But what could be the most interesting untold story here, writes Andrew Malcom of the LA Times, is how California got some of this stuff in the first place. Among the weirder items: a surfboard, antique piano, and dentist chairs.
