How much ???

Three quarters of a million?? US$780,000??? Catarina Migliorini auctioned her virginity as part of a doco.

Yea right... we're all idiots!

To end the week on a nice note, its great to see father and son share some quality time together.

This photo’s worth a 1,000 words. Not so much the backdrop (which is pretty) but the two individuals. Rupert, founder, chair and CEO of News Corporation and Lachlan his eldest boy who quit daddy’s business a few years ago…

It was an Australian guy who organised the whole deal too - he is a f'ing idiot. Was the lucky bidder Japanese or something?

Oh that is the photo Rupert tweeted was it? I hadn't seen it but do usually follow him. He supposedly posted one with one of his youngest kids as well. Wow, it is a great pic -- makes me wonder what the family dynamics must be. But at the end of the day Lachlan got a lot of money from Daddy and ran to his rescue when facing the troubles in the UK. Maybe given his younger brother got into trouble the rift has been healed between this pair. Rupert is 80 odd, sometimes it is easy to forget he is an old bloke. Incredible man really despite everything.

The winner was a real idiot. Is any sex worth $750k? The guy who was auctioned only raised $3k... shows which of the winner has a bit more brains, that said, $3k for sex is still too much.

Did I say I was a scrooge??
