    Lunch with him would be wasted on me. He would have to tell me one, maybe two things, and as dumbed down as he could make it.

    Sounds OK. Do you think a salad might be better than an sandwich? And do you still have some pinballs just for old times sake?

    3.5 million? That's a heck of a lot of King Prawns to get through and he'd want to be a good talker.

    I imagine that would be tax deductible? If so, then the carried forward losses would carry on for a lifetime lol.

    Should be, he doesn't take the money it is a charity auction from what I understand.

    That is the beauty of Buffett, he cuts to the essence of a complex topic and doesn't try to obfuscate the topic to make himself seem clever as so many people do.

    It's a lunch for seven guests (from what I read about a previous one) so get a couple of mates together and lunchpool. You'll get lunch for under 7 figures.
