CityVille's Eternal Fountain protects crops forever ... for about $45

Zynga is going for yet another giant money grab. This time, it's in the developer's most popular game, CityVille. For 395 City Cash, or in the ballpark range of $45, you can pick up the Eternal Fountain. Like the infamous Unwither Ring and other items before it, this premium decoration will instantly revive all withered crops and spoiled shipments for, well, forever.

While players can remove the item from their city and throw it into their inventories to remove the effect, the item can never be destroyed. (Unless, of course, you're in the general vicinity of a massive, ancient volcano.) As long as the Eternal Fountain is present in your city, you'll never have to worry about withered crops or shipments again.

Of course, the very presence of such an item begs the question: Is it worth it? For suspense's sake--and the fact that we refuse to give another 300 words to this eternal debate--we'll just leave it at that. However, this item is only available for another nine or so hours as of this writing (to be more exact, until Oct. 6 at 11:59 p.m. PST), so you better make that expensive decision quickly.
