The village of Wauconda (a small town in the state of Washington near the Canadian border) has recently been sold for $360,000 on eBay. Now, it's not the price that's amazing, but rather the fact that someone was able to buy a freakin' town!
I remember when I was a kid, I always thought if I won the lottery that it would cool to buy my hometown. I soon realised this was impossible, as villages are not owned by a single person -- unless it's the village of Wauconda of course. Complete with a restaurant, post office and gas station, this town will offer the couple who bought it all the amenities they need (except a population).
