For someone who has everything, how about an aircraft carrier? The bidding was hot for a decommissioned carrier offered on eBay last week. It went to at least $90 million for the "demilitarized" vessel, which may have been a former British carrier also used by Australia. The ship was valued at $2 million in scrap value when ship broker Renming Cheng decided to see what the market would bear. He suggested to potential buyers that it might make a good tourist attraction, hotel, amusement park or museum. More than 350,000 people checked out the offer. It was not immediately known who bought the ship, which is now moored in Ski, Norway.
