Some fuckers have too much money

Proof that the economic climate is perfectly sunny in Doha: last night, someone paid one million riyals (about $333,000 CDN) for a phone number. Gracious.

Vodafone is setting up a mobile network in Qatar and auctioned off their super awesome"star numbers." They raised over 11 million QR (for charity, mind you), with the highest bid exceeding one million.

The million dolla number? 7111111. Really?? It's not even that cool. If it were up to me, I'd throw my money away on something hilarious, like 696969exclamation point. There's a number I'd fight a thousand teenage boys for.

On an unrelated note, it's 30 degrees outside. I'm dragging my broke ass to the pool.
