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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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?

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

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.

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.

Joe Biden had a net worth of $100K when he was a senator. The F1 guy has a net worth of over $4.2 billion. Doing just a little bit of math, Ecclestone is 42,000 times richer than Biden. If Biden donated $1000 before being elected (to pick a nice, even, round number), the Ecclestone equivalent would be $42 million to match that as a percent of income. I realize that this doesn't take into account that a much higher percentage of Biden's net worth is tied up in things like housing, transportation, utilities, and food than Ecclestones, so he doesn't have as much free income. But, you know, math is fun.

That sales tax is nice, but it's not actually stimulating the economy. Let's say I'm super-rich, and I have millions in cash (not to mentions hundreds of millions in assets), just burning a whole in my pocket. Now I could buy a gold-plated jet and dozens of Ferraris I'm only going to drive once a year, or I could use that money to expand my own business and invest in other people's businesses. Build factories, buy equipment, hire workers, shiat that actually bolsters an economy.

No. FARK you! I hate people like you. You complain about other people's spending habits, but how many pairs of shoes do you have? Five? Ten? More?

She just created jobs for lots of brown people who will have to go and dig up rocks like this just to keep these 'holier than thou' socialites happy. She just made 6 people hundredares. Not many can make that claim.

I have to admit if I were her I'd probably buy a few things I don't really need. HOWEVER I wouldn't spend almost 2m on a flippin bathtub. I'd get myself a hell of a nice one but there is so much more I'd rather spend that money on. Hell you can get one hell of a house for almost 2m. Especially in this economy.

I'd also buy a much better computer. I'd have a nice phone that could go on the net. Probably have myself a nice little cinema in my house. Things like that. I'd also buy myself some nice clothes. Maybe make myself a gym in my house. Things like that.

What gets me about her is that from one side of her mouth she's claiming how her parents taught her & her sister the value of money & a good deal. Then from the other side of her mouth she's bragging about spending almost 2m on a friggen tub. Now I love a good bubble bath but that's just farkin nuts.

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

Yeah! Because providing capital that allows banks to lend to those who are starting businesses who provide employment never did anyone any good! Yeah!


Unless you are willfully ignorant of the current economic climate I'll spell it out.... the banks are sitting on billion dollar piles of cash right now, successful companies are sitting on billions dollar piles of cash right now - in short everyone who has money which could be being used to start new businesses or hire new people is sitting on it - yes that $250k could have been a loan to someone but banks are not in any kind of liquidity crush hoping someone will give them some money so they can make a small business loan. The US gov't basically wrote them a blank check and begged them to start loaning money - its not happening and they need so little extra money that CD's are paying all of 1% on anything short of a 3 year CD.

Her $1.6 million dollar tub at least put $1.6 million dollars back in to circulation even if most of it was probably to people who are only slightly less rich than she is - at least SOME of it found its way into some poor schmucks pocket.

So is it the tanning, the makeup, or the lifestyle that is making a 27-year-old look as if they were 40-year-old women who don't look bad even though they clearly got too much sun when they were younger? Because I don't get it.

Fact: Rich people are obsessed with lavish spending on negligibly-improved amenities.
Problem: Poor people resent rich people flaunting their wealth as if it were virtue.

Solution: Make anything a rich person buys expensive. $4 shampoo for rich people is now $5,000. A $0.50 candy bar is $700. It's the exact same product the 'little people' enjoy but the rich can once more feel exclusive without fear of torches, pitchforks and guillotines.

Well yeah, but the rich person wants to feel like they're getting something - anything - that's exclusive to him and his ilk for the extra money. So there has to be something different about the product. Like, maybe charge rich guys extra for bottled water but it's exclusive because it's imported from Fiji or something stupid like that.

I have no problem with wealthy people spending millions on luxury items, but if they're going to shell out ridiculous sums of money, can't they at least try to show a modicum of good taste in the process? The stuff the Ecclestone sisters are spending money on all screams "chav who somehow got money" and it's tacky as all get out.

You have just described trickle down economics and the logic behind conservative tax theory. When the rich have money they sepnd it and buy stuff - or better yet - invest it in their business so it can make more money for them. And when they do - they create jobs - which creates consumers - which creates more jobs, etc, etc.

On the other hand, if your gov't confiscates said money, it will use it to create huge beaurocrasies with the idea of redistributing the wealth to those less fortunate. So jobs won't be created and less money will flow into the economy, further stymying economic growth - while making government bigger, more powerful and more intrusive.

Agreed.

But...
On one hand, it's their money to do with what they want.
On the other it's actions like this that make people want this loser's head on a pike.

It's one thing to have money and quite another to essentially brag about what a farked up coont you are because you're rich beyond avarice.

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.

It used to be a joke (sorta), but now it's really true: you can only get a loan if you don't need it.


I needed a loan to buy a car earlier this year and my house last year and I got them. Your conclusion is flawed.

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

Is she a member of Cobra? The Legion of Doom?


If she is, she's got a perfect cover as "vapid rich biatch". She's not getting a giant crystal from the Amazon to power her weather-control device, she's getting a giant crystal to use as a new bathtub. Ingenious!

I wonder if she actually used the term "minions", though. I guess it doesn't matter, I'm adding it to a list of things to do if I ever find myself a millionaire or better:

78: I will refer to all my employees, from my CPA to my lawyer on retainer, as my minions. Even on the official paperwork.

/The pictured tub is actually kind of cool looking. Not very comfy or worth 1.6 mil, but better than the giant Swarosvki salad bowl I was expecting.

CitizenTed: 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.


Your point is taken, however;
1) "Normal" tubs don't fit a six foot frame. I would get one spacious enough for myself and a size 6 (upper-end of scale) lady.
2) House - spot on, give me 3,500-4000 ft and plenty of acreage.
3) Love the A8 but I've heard more and more the brand is a shop queen.
4) First class or charter something private.

Darth Macho: How luxury goods 'stimulate' the economy.

Item: $1.6 million crystal bathtub.
$1.2 million: Crystal dealer/broker/locator
$300,000: Private security, bribes to South American government, transport
$50,000: Accountant to write off expenses as charity
$30,000: Contractors to install plumbing fixtures
$18,000: Cocaine ("We were passing through Bolivia coming back")
$1,700: Food and petty expenses
$300: Team of over 70 68 62 impoverished natives to extract giant piece of crystal from side of mountain

So technically it does create jobs...


Yes but much like paying someone to dig a ditch and fill it again, just "creating a job" doesn't actually help the economy. Jobs that actually increase the GDP (and creatives something productive that can be traded to other nations) grows the economy and allows for both more revenue towards government as well as greater purchasing power for the resources of the world. That allows more resources to flow into the U.S. and thus, increases the amount of wealth for everyone.

In short, not all jobs are helpful and many serve as only a temporary boost to a business that has no business being a business.
