A microphone allegedly used by John Lennon to record his vocals on the 1971 album “Imagine” has but put up for sale on Craigslist.

Similar to just about anything on Craigslist, the authenticity is questionable, but the seller says he has documentation.

“All documentation is authentic as it was my Brother who purchased it for me as a gift a number of years ago,” the seller writes.

The equipment was owned and used by Lennon at his Tittenhurst Park Studios, according to the listing. The asking price is £1500.

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
