More money than sense?

People pay vast amounts of money for incredibly stupid things.

A prime example is the $45000 (yup, that's FORTY FIVE THOUSAND DOLLARS) paid by someone for chest and pelvis x-rays of Marilyn Monroe.

I've been known to spend more money than I should on fancy food, or maybe even a handbag on occasion. But x-rays of a dead actress? Come on. Give the money to charity or something. Surely there must be a better use of money than for that kind of thing?

And what does a person do with these x-rays anyway? Display them as art? Hide them away to make sure they don't fade with dust and age?

I just think it's pure idiocy.
