That movie was a sobering punch in the gut to a couple of 18 year old high school seniors in spring of 1985 - myself and a friend - and my friend was heading off to the Naval Academy just a few weeks later.

Misleading headline - the vase was not originally worth any where close to $85 million - as the story says, on the high end it appraised at no more than £1.2m, or about $1.6m.

It SOLD for $85 Mil (roughly £62.1m) because someone was wiling to pay that much to get it.

I grew up in Joplin, MO and was actually hit by a car on Route 66 (AKA 7th Street) while riding my bicycle when I was 10 years old - it happened two days before 4th Grade class pictures were taken, so I have a wonderful memento from when my forehead, cheek, chin and hip met pavement that day. I got a new bike, too, since it wasn't my fault. That long section of Route 66 that runs through Joplin will never go away or deteriorate either since it runs right through the middle of town and is one of the busiest streets. It is also pretty cool to hear my hometown mentioned every time I hear Bobby Troup's familiar song - on the radio, in movies, etc...
