$2.1M for lunch with Buffett yields $14M capital gains

It's become apparent that I need to bid on next year's lunch with Warren Buffett. Last year it cost $2.1M but this year it went for nearly 25% less, so next year's should be a dirt-cheap bargain.

I'm going to choose my accompanying lunchmates from my top seven co-bidding fundraiser buddies, who will probably each need to send me $200K $250K $300K just to be on the safe side. But if we win the bidding then I'll be happy to pay the drinks tab out of the residue on my own.

Oh, and we'll need to decide on a stock tip:


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.

I make some really good hot wings. Maybe Warren would be tempted by that and some ice cold beer. Since he is such a down to earth kind of guy....
