Melon auctioneer loses money
I heard on the headline news section on the radio yesterday that a company tried to auction on the Internet two melons valued at 300,000 yen ($3000 or so) each and ended up getting only 150,000 yen ($1500 or so) a piece. The newswire reported that the company had lost 300,000 yen in the sale.
Oo. Internet bad.
