intergalactic kidney stones

Celebs are the classiest. On Monday, actor/priceline.com connoisseur William Shatner sold his nasty-ass kidney stone to GoldenPalace.com for $25,000. The money will go to Habitat for Humanity. Habitat's website claims that it costs them an average of $59,324 to build a house in the United States, so Captain Kirk's stone equals 42% of a house. Great!

A kidney stone!

Though the strangest part of this story is the buyer. GoldenPalace.com, an online casino, collects strange "treasures". I have no idea what they do with them (Put them in a museum? Bathe in them?), but they also own a cheese sandwich containing the image of the Virgin Mary. Rad!

Beam me up,
