This is exactly why parents tell their kids not to touch things in stores. A customer of the Playboy Club in London accidentally broke a $77,615 bottle of Cognac. Not only was it that expensive, but the Cognac was about 224 years old.

The customer ordered two glasses of the liquor for around $8,000, and decided he wanted to look at the bottle. While standing to take it, he sent it flipping through the air before the piece of history smashed to pieces. It was supposed to be on Guinness Book of World Records this week as the world's most expensive cocktail, but that record will be postponed.

The customer wasn't required to pay for the bottle, and unfortunately for the club, the bottle wasn't insured.
