Charlie was referring to his investment in Diversified Retailers,
which he talked about. He invested 10% of his personal net worth or
600K into this retailer. "It was hugely competitive and consumed
capital like crazy. Warren and I knew very quickly it was a mistake.
We stopped putting capital into it. We could not wait to get out of it".

That was one of his examples of investing mistakes he discussed.
