Monroe's X-rays

I stumbled upon this bit of news (BBC News, posted June 28, 2010) that a set of three X-rays of Marilyn Monroe's chest taken during a 1954 hospital visit could fetch $45,000 (£29,900) in Las Vegas. The X-rays, sold at a movie memorabilia auction at Planet Hollywood, had a $3,000 (£2,000) pre-sale estimate. Well, I have an X-ray of my chest taken during my last medical check-up. I do not mind selling it for RM10,000. Any takers?

And talented Brazil were just too good for Chile as the latter were unceremoniously brushed aside to allow Brazil to now meet Netherlands in the quarter-finals. Juan (34), Luis Fabiano (38) and Robinho (59) scored in a 3-0 win as Chile's entertaining World Cup run came to an abrupt end.
