(Newser) – Warren Buffett's status as an oracle seems intact. An anonymous bidder will pay $2.6 million to have lunch with the chief of Berkshire Hathaway, topping the 2008 record of $2.1 million, reports Monsters & Critics. Buffett auctions off the lunch every year on eBay, with proceeds going to a charity that helps the homeless in San Francisco.
