This Is What $1.4 Million Will Buy You At An Auction
Some people would use $1.4 million to buy a lavish estate. Some might consider donating it to me to finish paying off college loans and so that I could finally fix the front bumper on my fucking car.

The economic downturn has truly hit everyone.
