No, seriously, from the BBC:
Watson is the first living recipient to auction off his Nobel medal
Prof James Watson is to auction off the Nobel Prize medal he won for the discovery of the structure of DNA.
The auctioneer says the medal is the first to be auctioned by a living recipient and could fetch between $2.5m (£1.6m) and $3.5m (£2.2m).
The 1962 prize was awarded to Watson, Maurice Wilkins and Francis Crick, with each receiving a gold medal.
Various science not-for-profits will be among the beneficiaries.
