William Shatner Passes Kidney Stone To GoldenPalace.com!
LOS ANGELES, CA, JANUARY 18, 2006 -- Captain's log. Star date: 011806. William Shatner. Has gone. Where no man has gone before. And sold a part of himself. To online casino. GoldenPalace.com. For $25,000. To benefit. Habitat for Humanity.
The former Captain of the Enterprise passed a kidney stone at warp speed and beamed it into the waiting hands of GoldenPalace.com. The casino paid $25,000 for Shatner?s specimen, the entirety of which will go to Habitat For Humanity to help provide housing for those in need.
Although the kidney stone that broke down Shatner?s shields caused him more discomfort than a Klingon pain stick, the sci-fi/pop-culture icon is more than happy that his calcium offspring fetched such a price.
?When I was contacted about selling my kidney stone to GoldenPalace.com for an original price of $15,000 I turned it down knowing that my tunics from Star Trek have commanded more than $100,000. I offered the stone, stint and string for $25,000 and informed them that 100% of the proceeds would go to benefit Habitat for Humanity and I retain visitation rights?.
?I want to own it,? said Jimmy Kimmel on his November 14th show as he interviewed Shatner about his stone. ?It is the ultimate Star Trek collectible. You know, it?s like a real dilithium crystal?. Unfortunately for Jimmy, GoldenPalace.com transported past all other offers with their 25K.
With more drama than a T.J. Hooker finale, Shatner ended up on a gurney with stirrups. "It was a gurney for pregnant women," said Shatner. "They're wheeling me through the hospital -- my legs are in the stirrups and I'm screaming -- and somebody says, 'Look, there goes Captain Kirk, he's having a baby!' Very, very embarrassing."
?We are very pleased to own this piece of TV history and to be able to help a worthy charity like Habitat For Humanity,? said GoldenPalace.com CEO Richard Rowe. ?We?re excited to have a piece of him that can?t be replicated, and we intend to take it on tour with our other unusual items. We are confident that this will be our most enterprising advertising campaign to date with the Captain on board.?

While a little on the creepy side, this is totally cool. And the money going to Habitat For Humanity certainly makes it all worthwhile. I would have loved to be a fly on the wall during Shatner's conversation with people over the idea to sell his kidney stone! :)

Well Bill, You've come a long way since living in Toronto on that old rope Matress :-) Welcome to the world of Kidney Stones. Time to get some enzimes into your diet! I've had 8 to 10 of the darned things and my Wife spent a miserable Christmas (this past) because her Doctor told her, "they're too far up ther and they'll never bother you, WRONG!
I'll stay away from them for now. The most recent stone I dealt with, the "Lithotripsey Gypsies" were in town the day after I visited my Urologist and I had it blasted into bits!
(not Kibble and bits) though it felt like it :-(
Good to they can be of some use, Bill! Just wait till Marcie has one or two! IT'S NOT LIKE HAVING A BABY! JUST ASK JOANNE, WHO HAD TWO OF THEM, THIS CHRISTMAS!

Where's the photo? I want to see a picture of the stone like next to a dime or something to I can see how big it is.
What is the Klingon for "pass a kidney stone"?

I had heard that there was to be a naming contest for Shatner's stone, so I wrote in and suggested, The Horta.
Now, Bill should head for the nearest planned parenthood clinic and leave a sample, as I'm sure there would be plenty of alien babes willing to make a purchase for a good cause...
It even inspires a new episode, "The Trouble with Dribbles!"
Big fan by the way, can you tell? Can't wait for the freakshow to hit the road!

Good Luck with the stones. I have passed over 100 of them myself and have had 9 surgeries to have them removed and blasted. Do you know that once you have one you have an 85% chance of having another one.... hmmmmm the money possibilities. I have over 100 of them I can sell you at a fraction of the price. They are in a Jar at home.

Some freaky Trekkie is going to buy Mr. Rescue 911's kidney stone and scream "MUST BECOME ONE WITH CAPT. JAMES T. KIRK!!!!!" in Klingon before swallowing it.

I took care of the problem with stones by taking 400-500mg "CHELATED Magnesium" two or three times a day.That's because, with all the yogurt, some cheese, and calcium fortified products I take in, there was no doubt a magnesium deficiency was behind them. I don't eat very much in the way of magnesium rich foods. Anyway, works great for the kidney stones and gallstones (yeah, I've had both). When I feel a blocked gall stone causing pain, which I know will get worse minute by minute, I pop 500mg and within half hour to an hour the discomfort goes and I can breathe a sigh of relief. Poor guy. All that fame and not a decent doctor who can tell him how the human body works (like a biochemical nutritionist. Hint,hint)If I remember to drink it I can keep stones in solution, so they never get stuck in ducts and cause all that pain, with natural, unsweetened apple juice.

Yummy.. Ya know, come to think of it.. ol Will was a tough dude and his kidney stones must have been tough.. I wander what would happen if Chuck Norris put his kidney stones up for sale? They would go for a lot of money since Chuck Norris's kidney stones were turned into diamonds from all the round house kicks he gives.

It is definitely on tour. I just lucked into seeing the kidney stone along with a few other Golden Palace items here in Austin, TX. Very cool collection.
I have no idea if a tour schedule has been released. The truck happened to be parked behind our office building.
