Isn't it funny how the villians in James Bond movies always capture Bond, incapacitate him, and then, instead of killing him straight off, tell him all the details of their wicked plans, meanwhile giving Bond enough time either to be rescued or to escape from their clutches? The Austin Powers movies ridicule this cliched plot device repeatedly (to great comic effect).
A propos of this phenomenon (sort of), the AP has news of this interesting auction. Apparently Bond villian Odd Job's hat fetched over $33,000.
