I guess I didn't realize how bad the economy was... Apparently in new zealand, for sale, village with a pub & 40 inhabitants, only $715,000 (http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE65O4OM20100625)
Will that be cash or charge? Cash of course. and.. You want fries with that?
You know the economy is doing bad when you can buy several of these villages with the world's largest gold coin (http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE65O2S320100625) ... although a bit big for the pocket, it's still enough to buy the village at face value (1 million pounds)... but the real value is 3 million pounds... for just 1 coin.
It reminds me of a story I read as a kid... it'd be funny to walk up to a store and say, "you wouldn't happen to have change for 1 million pounds, would you?"
