1. Norman Rockwell and sex.
2. Neuroscience can now replicate out-of-body sensations.
3. Markets in everything, the unthinkable.
4. The most expensive items on ebay, self-updating.
Ebay; Apparantly land and the Virgin Mary on a pool stick.
If you do an advanced search all it takes is clicking the little box for completed items listing to see the auctions that have ended. The most expensive things that had bids were a painting by Helen Frankenthaler ($360,000) and a custom built show semi-truck ($275,300 but below the reserve price).
It looks like html works so here are the highest price completed auctions. Most were classified listings again but there were at least 2 sales on the first page.
