If it has a 'boil' setting, then I agree.

Kill her.

You know what's worse than people who inherit billions and blow it on stuff? People who inherit billions and do nothing with it.

Sure, it annoys me that she spent more money on fireworks for her wedding than I will make in 4 years busting my ass, but you know what? That $250k wasnt going to do anyone any good sitting in a bank account earning interest - we SHOULD be encouraging these rich princesses to spend their daddies money as fast as possible. Let em go through life with a golden dildo up their twat - at least the guy/gal that makes golden dildos has a job

Meh, it's their money. I mean it's not blow on a stripper's tits but to each their own I guess.

Nice quote, what's your point?

I hate people like this. How hard would it be for her to, instead of spending $1.6M on a farking BATHTUB to only spend $100,000 on a farking bathtub - still excessively extravagant but nicely fitting the wasteful spending she wants - and donating $1.5M to a charity of some kind, to keeping children from starving? Fark you.
 
2011-09-11 12:11:37 PM
I would have bought $1.6 million in Bazooka Chewing Gum, so I suppose I have no place to talk here.
 
2011-09-11 12:12:22 PM
We shouldn't complain about rich people being called "job creators" and then also biatch when they create jobs for crystal bathtub makers.

Maybe she does donate money to charity.
So she gives 1.5M to prevent children from starving therefore creating the expectation from the poor that someone will feed their children. Oh wait, that already exists.

Haters gonna hate. I'd love to have that tub.

"she recently 'dispatched' five minions on an expedition 'up the Amazon' to gather crystal"

Is she a member of Cobra? The Legion of Doom?
 
2011-09-11 01:45:17 PM
This is great. Spend more of your money, Tamara. Circulate that. Get it around town.
 
2011-09-11 01:54:30 PM
You figure she created at least nine very short-term jobs with that money (five minions, two sculptors to shape the rock, and two plumbers). So, as it turns out, the government is more effective than private billionaires. Huh.
 
2011-09-11 01:57:35 PM
First against the wall come the revolution!

Seriously, though: I find that level of gluttony disgusting. If you gave me a billion dollars I would not buy a giant $2M bathtub. It would be humiliating to own such a ridiculous thing. I'd have a normal bathtub like everyone else. I'd have a quiet, normal house with room for me, mine and a couple guests. I'd drive a decent car, like maybe an Audi A6. I'd travel first class, but I wouldn't buy a Lear jet. I'd live well and happily, but never ostentatiously.

Aaron Spelling's Bel Air mansion? Rolls Royce convertible? I find that kind of crap repulsive. And yes, I'm being serious. If that's what you aspire to, if that's what you think makes life grand, you need a reality check and a big dose of sympathy because you are farked.
 
2011-09-11 01:59:37 PM
Yeah, this is great. Spend more money stripping the Amazon of some of its best natural resources so that you can bathe in a giant crystal like the special princess you are. It's well worth it. And don't forget the rhino horn towel holders.

of course you are filled with hate, I get that.

they donate a lot to charity, a lot more than Biden or 0bama did before running for President, so go direct your hate to them.

Dear Tamara,
If you're reading this, may I please have your old bathtub? Mine is 20 years old.

Thanks,

man the profit margin on that must be amazing, I need to start an ostentatious display of wealth type of company

You know what it is? Not so much that she spent over a million dollars on an ugly tub, because she can do what she wants with her money. It's that she's basically bragging about spending over a million dollars on an ugly tub. It's as if the real thrill is having something the vast majority of people couldn't afford, and that she's doing it in a way that seems to be very unfriendly to an already fragile ecosystem.

It's the attitude that bugs people.

I'm with the dude up top. If I suddenly became very rich, I'd have some nice things. Do some work on my house that I can't afford, put in a pool. I'd live well, but damned if I'd brag about it or line my walls with gold.
 
2011-09-11 02:15:11 PM
How dare you make fun of this exciting woman and her life. Just listen to this:

Tamara has been with stockbroker Omar Kyhami for 18 months - and says they have discussed marriage and children

What is that, if not success?
 
2011-09-11 02:16:00 PM
I'm okay with this. Especially if it comes with a webcam...

coco ebert: That tub is fugly.


Really? I think it's kind of neat. Of course I'd never buy one, no matter how rich I was. At least it's better than some of the crap rich people buy that looks just like something you could buy at Target, just with an insane pricetag. Like was said above, hooray for the top 1% spending money. Look at the picture of that tub and see taxes and jobs.
 
2011-09-11 02:20:29 PM
I am shocked I tell you. You people are so busy ripping on her tub that no one has commented on how hard they would hit it.
You poor farkers disappoint.
 
2011-09-11 02:26:08 PM
I cannot remember which of the movies, but that tub reminds me of the scene from some Harry Potter movie where Harry has to shovel evil water down Dumbledore's throat. Anyway, tub reminds me of that vat from which Harry pulled the water. Anyone remember that scene?

Spending money is an achievement worthy of public notice.
 
2011-09-11 02:37:48 PM
Cool bathterb, bet the plumbers and masons etc who got the job to do this are laughing at you haters all the way to the bank. Its not like this money just evaporates when its spent and its better then having it rot away in a bank account.

That's how she's going to outdo her sister. Her sister has the Spelling mansion and servants? She'll have a lair and henchmen. Much cooler. She can hire everyone who ever played James Bond to pretend to rescue her from it.

When you went to buy your last Blue Ray dvd for 30 bucks, did you stop yourself, buy a dvd from the 5 dollar bin and drop the remaining 25 into the Salvation Army bucket?

If this had gone on to the main page it would be a much livelier level of hate and derisive outrage.

But what if she gave some of that money to starving children from *gasp* Texas?? What then???

I was surprised by that myself. I'd love the chance to disappoint her, and maybe let her buy me some nice things.

coco ebert: That tub is fugly.

No kidding. When I read "crystal bathtub" I was picturing something completely, perfectly clear, and elegantly shaped. The photo in TFA looks gross, misshapen and dirty. Hell, I probably wouldn't pay more that $750,000 for that one.
 
2011-09-11 03:14:27 PM

coco ebert: That tub is fugly.


Agreed. The one in the picture looks more like a chunk of calcite or halite. It has decent translucency, but if you're going for quartz why not go for a clearer piece, or amethyst. Heck, what would be neat is a tub of Swarovsky or whoever the high-end leaded crystal maker is.

Wonder if she bought it because it's from some mine where the Lemurians helped the Mayans ascend, or some such, which will ensure her immortal beauty or that crap.

/a tub of halite would be awesomely funny
 
2011-09-11 03:20:35 PM
The DM found that tub pic on Google. Her tub will likely be sparklier.
 
2011-09-11 03:20:35 PM
I think you're all missing the big picture:

I'd defile her and that tub with the most forgetful 10 seconds of her life, thank you very much.

The problem with the "It's stimulating the economy" argument is that it's really not. It's billionaires buying overpriced bullshiat from millionaire boutique owners who employ a bunch of retail workers making shiat wages.There's no legitimate economic development. It's just a rich asshole circle-jerk.

And if you follow the jewelry, clothing and other overpriced bullshiat all the way to the bottom of the chain, it's ultimately coming from some poor bastard in a third-world making less than a dollar a day.

For all the job-creator bullshiat tea party assholes keep spewing, they're not actually creating any jobs. They have plenty of money socked away to cover their own asses when they should be investing in small businesses. They keep saying the government can't fix the economy, but none of these spineless coonts want to be the first to start putting their money back into the economy. More tax cuts for businesses isn't going to fix a goddamn thing, and anyone who says different is either retarded or a liar. Cut their taxes and they'll just keep hording their money and laying off workers until the whole farking thing falls apart.

Sales tax/GST? Or do they pay cash and skip that? Agreed (as a business owner) that tax cuts for businesses are BS-the businesses that get them are exactly the ones that shouldn't.

In case you haven't heard, Death Race 2020 is coming up soon. Starving children can't move quickly so they're worth less points. We need well fed children to run over if you want to get the high score. GAT is only doing his part to help his favorite driver win.

She can give me a few million dollars while she's at it. I'll tell her her fortune. How am I gonna do that, you ask? I'll look at her bank receipt.
