Author JD Salinger’s toilet for sale – $1M on ebay

Sallinger toiletA toilet described as once having belonged to US author JD Salinger has been put on sale on the online auction site eBay for $1 Million.

The vendor says he obtained the “used toilet commode” from a couple who now own the former home of the Catcher in the Rye author.

It comes “uncleaned and in its original condition”, the ad for it states.

“Who knows how many of [his] stories were thought up and written while Salinger sat on this throne!”, it adds.

The toilet comes with a letter from Joan Littlefield, attesting that the toilet was removed during renovations to her and her husband’s house in Cornish, New Hampshire, formerly owned by the reclusive author.

The human magnet

Human magnetLooking on the bright side, she should never lose her keys.

But for mother-of-one Brenda Allison, her mysterious ‘power’ that means metallic objects stick to her body has long since lost its attraction.

Dubbed ‘the human magnet’, Miss Allison says she is often embarrassed by the effect, which she has been told is down to a heightened electromagnetic current running through her body.

The accounts manager says coins, safety pins, magnets, spanners and even a metal lid from a Vaseline pot can stay on her body for up to 45 minutes without falling off.

When the pulse is at its strongest, she says she can even dance in her living room without them coming off.

For as long as she can remember, she explains, her body has set off car alarms, interrupted the TV signal and blown out light bulbs.

When she was a child, she said, her parents stopped buying her watches because her magnetic field kept interfering with the timing mechanism.

Every person has a subtle electromagnetic field flowing through their bodies – but most of us are unaware of its presence. However, Miss Allison, 50, says she first noticed the effects of her magnetism when she was in a nursery school.
