Truffles

$330,000 for roughly 3 pounds of truffles, that comes out to a little over $100,000 per pound.

UK Guardian: White truffles fetch $330,000 at auction
The lot included a huge truffle dug up in the central Tuscany region weighing 900 grams (about 2lb) as well as one found in Molise weighing in at 400g.

These are the same vandals that want to cut taxes for the rich again and cut benefits like SSI and Medicare for everyone else. Shameful.

Talk about conspicuous spending - $330,000 correctly invested could go a long way to help someone retire.
