So here is something that makes you wonder about where the future of our economy will go in the upcoming year. A super nerd named Jon Jacobs was into an online game called "Entropia." This game centers around the purchasing of inter-stellar properties throughout the universe. One thing you should know about it though, you buy this galactic Real estate..WITH REAL MONEY. Sometimes it doesn't come cheap either! Ole' Jon Jacobs had $100,000 layin' around in 2005..and he used it to by ..and I'm not joking here--an asteroid resort.
The dude just sold this piece of COMPLETELY FAKE PROPERTY for $635,000!!!!!! That's an incredible return.
So, the lesson here is to not buy a real house, but invest in castles and spaceships in video games online. VICTORY!!!
