Now You Can Buy Your Own Aircraft Carrier

Looking for a place with a water view, lots of garage space, and a flight deck? Do you have $3,000,000 in the bank, and can you afford to tow a ship across the Atlantic? If so, you're in luck: the Royal Navy is selling the HMS Invincible, an aircraft carrier decommissioned in 2005. Fans of Top Gear will recognize the ship as the site of the Black Stig's demise, which surely adds value in the eyes of any car guy.

The auction is being held by the Disposal Services Authority, and they've included a helpful "Add to Cart" button just in case you have an aircraft carrier on your holiday shopping list. Time is running out, since the auction ends on January 5, unless I can raise $3 million in cash before then.
