Wow. that's an odd stat, but i will accept it as true for two reasons. I got it from Starpulse and they are never wrong, but, more importantly, because I own all 30,481 items. 2007 was a busy year for me. Here's some of my favorite purchases:
A Kleenex used and discarded by Kate Moss containing mucuus, cocaine, and what's left of her septum.
An autographed copy of a self-help book entitled "Why Woman Who Aren't Nearly As Beautiful As Some People Say They Are, But Still Attractive, Date Some Of The Most Hideous Men On The Planet, Specifically, Pete Doherty"
A piece of watercress she nibbled on from 1993-1996
A break-up letter to Johnny Depp reading, in part, "Piss Off you TV loser. You'll never be a big star like me."
And, perhaps my favorite, a picture of Kate's famous Obsession print ad with a special sexy message:
Sometimes it's just a matter of making the US Department of Defense look, like, REALLY cool.
Actual impending doom like global climate change or mass extinction just makes people bored.
In some cases, the Marvel source material just did better.
