How much would you pay for William Shatner's kidney stone? by Sybil Adelman Sage

Last fall, when William Shatner had surgery to remove a kidney stone, he was alert and prescient enough to ask to hold onto the stone, which allowed him to sell it for $25,000 with the money going to Habitat for Humanity, who used it to help a family that had been left homeless by Hurricane Katrina. Why anyone would pay $25,000 for Willian Shatner's kidney stone is an enigma to me. JFK's rocking chair it's not.

Stars are now mining their lives as subsidiary rights, perhaps the most profitable being the first photo of the Brangelina twins, which reportedly went for $11 million. Having more kids is one of the more profitable of their joint ventures.

Expect to see discarded nose tips and flabby neck folds stars are having removed by cosmetic surgeons on e-Bay.
