    Default £2.5 million. For a fish?

    Mad "Tuna King" Kiyoshi Kimura has been at it again, out-bidding everyone at Tokyo's New Years Tuna auction, for the best example:



    Well it is a whopper. But £2.5 million - this has got to be a publicity stunt surely - no way can he make a profit on that by selling slices of it in his restaurants. Or can he?

    No a publicity stunt. The pound is just worth less than toilet paper, that's all.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
