Start your own navy! Aircraft carrier sells for 1 penny.
If you’d rooted through your couch cushions, you may have been able to find enough loose change to buy a carrier from the United States. For the second time in seven months, the United States Navy has sold an aircraft carrier for a penny.

According to a report by FoxNews.com, the aircraft carrier USS Saratoga (CV 60) has joined the USS Forrestal (CV 59/AVT 59) as aircraft carriers that have been sold to a scrapping company for a penny. The Saratoga, a Forrestal-class vessel, saw combat in the Vietnam War, as well as during the 1986 Freedom of Navigation exercises in the Gulf of Sidra, as well as during Operation Desert Storm.
