West Linn High School's cafeteria. - 

This final note today, which comes to us courtesy of John Carney.

He had an item this morning on his blog at CNBC about the cafeteria at Goldman Sachs, which has economically engineered efficient eating. It charges a 25 percent higher price during the peak lunchtime hours of 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

Employees at one of the best-paying companies in America line up at 1:20 p.m. to watch the cost penalty window, calling that 10 minute period 'tick-down' around the office. 

Not makin' this stuff up, gang.
