Insight

A hand-drawn cover illustration of "Tintin" by the Belgian comic book artist Hergé has been sold at auction in Paris for a record price of $1.5 million.

My first thought is "Well, I if the buyer wanted it that much I guess it was worth it, but if I had that kind of money I hope I would use it in a more worthwhile way."

Then I remember the hundreds of dollars I pay for my sim and living expenses in SecondLife each month, which could make a huge difference somewhere else in the world, and I stop feeling so smug.

It´s a matter of relative wealth, I am almost certain this buyer gives generously to worthwhile causes as well.
