That may now be possible, given that a number are now up for auction in China, it's reported. Three Boeing 747s have landed on the auction arm of Taobao , China's leading eBay-like service. The planes have been in storage in the cities of Shanghai and Shenzhen since 2013, after their owner, Jade Cargo International, filed for bankruptcy in September that year. They were seized by a court in the southern city of Shenzhen, but had never found buyers despite being offered previously in six offline auctions. According to the Yangcheng Evening Post , this is the first time that the courts have offered a Boeing aircraft to the public for online auction. Sadly, you'll need deep pockets to afford one of these jets - opening bids for the planes range from 122 to 135 million yuan ($18.5-20.4m; £13.7m-15.1m). Taobao directs potential buyers to make a security deposit for the planes before 20 October, and bids formally close on 20 November.

In case you weren't already convinced based on creepiness factor alone, the body shaming behind The Dadbag should be enough to convince you that this accessory is better as a prototype. While undeniably strange to look at as a mere optical illusion, The Dadbag isn't as innocuous as it may seem. The fanny pack takes the hairy chest swimsuit trend and pumps it up an offensive notch by distinctly poking fun at plush stomachs, riffing off the idea that fat bodies are undesirable and laugh-worthy. Upon first glance, The Dadbag may elicit these giggles from some for it's silly styling. But it's important to (literally) unpack why we are amused by the accessory — and the source of comedy has some undeniable body-shaming roots.
