Breakfast Buffet: Monday, 9/29

Thank our eBay culture for this but on Saturday this week, there will be an auction of rare trees in France. The French got us to pay for drinking water so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised they’ll be able to get $30,000 or more for a tree. (The Economist)

I like the Swedes’ idea of an auction better. They’re selling something useful like whiskey at their auction. I’d need a couple of shots if I just paid $5,000 for a bottle. (The Local)
