I think Buffett will have a lot of fun. I think he probably would be much more bored if a value investing wannabe bought the lunch. Not that he'd show it.

I agree Jurgis. I'm inclined to think it will be an interesting lunch for WEB.

I severely doubt that. Having to sit down with a bunch of overconfident youngsters using the lunch as a promotion to market their sham coins that he probably views as a net negative to society. "I'll have a small coffee and a donut, please".

When you are dead, you do not know you are dead. It's only painful and difficult for others. The same applies when you are stupid.

I will sell my shares the moment they do that.
