“The bidding yesterday lasted less than four minutes. The rare Stradivarius violin went for a high — but not a record — price of $2.4 million.”
The bidding started at $700,000 and moved to 2.4 mil in that short a time? That’s a fucking spectator sport if I ever heard of one. Regular auctions are fun. An auction for an object as unique and treasured as a Stradivarius? That’s plum crazy.
