What happens in Las Vegas stays in Las Vegas.

Brilliant. Las Vegas casino magnate Steve Wynn had just finalized the $139 million sale of his Picasso painting "Le Rêve" (which would have made it the most expensive painting ever sold, I believe) when he accidentally poked a silver-dollar sized hole in the middle of it with his elbow. He was showing the painting off to a group of friends and his immediate response was, "Oh shit, look what I've done." Needless to say, he released the buyer from the agreement and will be keeping it after he has the painting repaired.
Mr. Wynn actually does suffer from an eye disease that limits his peripheral vision and results in frequently misjudging the proximity of nearby objects.
