Expensive Rags

This has nothing to do with games, but its a bit of odd news that i would like to share.

Since the day the first [well the 4th] star wars was filmed, the cloak worn by Obi-wan Kenobi was lost because it was thrown into a pile of other monk-looking robes. The store that had held the costume through the years had been renting out the robe to customers never noticing the treasure they had.

Until one day, a manager had noticed that the robe was unique. Saying that it was the robe worn by Alec Guinness playing Obi-wan Kenobi. For all those years, right under their noses, was a robe that would make them thousands of dollars richer.

The robe sold at an auction for over £54,000 ($122,360). The crazy part is that it was even used in another popular movie, The Mummy.
