So I went to the "Would you pay $41,468 for an action figure?" hotlink (//www.risingsunofnihon.com/2007/05/the_most_expensive_toy_in_japa.html) and the last bit of the article is the question "What's the dumbest thing you think someone can make out of platinum?"
So I got to thinking-
a life-size statue of an amoeba
a second airplane
pianos for smuggling cocaine
