I was just feeling bad about paying $15 for a burger, but I guess appeasing one's taste buds has no price. On Saturday, a record breaking sale on 489 pound bluefin tuna made headlines in Japan. It all went down at Tsukiji Market, where the $3,600 per pound fish was sold to a popular sushi chain.

The sales of such fish fish are usually to show one's wealth, or act as a symbol to invigorate the year's sales. I don't know, but I think there's got to be a better way to flex your dough. Although not usually this expensive, bluefin tuna prices have been sky rocketing due to over fishing and shrinking population.
