Save Ferris Bueller's house (aka please lend me $2.3 million)




Technically, it was Cameron Frye's house, not Ferris Bueller's house. But you get the point.

The home outside Chicago that served as the exterior of the Frye mansion in the 1986 movie is for sale. (That's not news. I wrote it up a while back.) But with the economy being what it is, and no '80s fan willing to lend me the $2.3 million so that I can save it, word has it that this historic property is now in danger of being bulldozed.

Read more about it here, but I warn you in advance, unless you majored in architecture, it might be the dullest article you'll read in this lifetime or the next.
