Strangest thing bought online

I was talking to a friend the other day in the furniture business (b&m) who markets his site locally in the yellow pages and in print ads. He was telling me that he just had a 15K order from someone that furnished a few rooms. It didn't entirely blow me away because I sell an item that at first glance should not work real well on the internet. I'm starting to think that there is not much that wouldn't work if done right.

What is the strangest or most expensive item you have bought online?

I know someone who bought a plot of land in Cyprus, the whole deal was done after seeing the pic on the net.

An aquaintence bought a relatively new Harley Davidson Fat Boy off of e-bay. I just buy computer related stuff at the moment.

I got my collections of Reservoir Dogs 12" figures, Big Boy memoribelia, and Zippos off of Ebay.

I also found a sweet Chicago Bears sweater vest identical to the one Ditka wore during the 86' Super Bowl season.
