Man pays 2.6 mil to have lunch with Warren Buffett

No ma'ams & sirs..your eyes do not deceive you. Every year a lunch date with Mr. Buffett is auctioned off to the highest bidder with proceeds going to the Glide Foundation which provides food, shelter, and other services to the homeless in San Francisco.

The anonymous bidder on Ebay originally bid 2,345,678 but once he learned that it wasnt the record for the bid he upped his donation to 2,626,411 to break the record for it. It seems like a lot of money just to sit and have lunch with someone, but past winners have been overseers of investment firms.

 It would be like a ball player getting lessons from MJ in his prime. That may just be priceless. Mr. Buffett is MR. INVESTMENT himself.. way cool. Unfortunately its reported that the conversation can be about anything but potential future investments! lol
