Cool, but does it have torpedo bulges?

Begun the yacht wars have.

More like "My Penis is Smaller than Your Penis"

So he gave it the name after a philosopher who advocated death to anyone not Islamic and conversion by force for their own good?

May he sail it too close to a carrier task force one day.

FTFA: It's expected to measure 180 meters, or around 590 feet - or the size one-and-a half football fields, plus a basketball court.

How many Rhode Islands is that?

Yes, but does he own a mansion?

When you've got billions of dollars, what else do you do with it? Barring just giving it away, there's really not that much you can spend it on, once you've got your first fleet of private jets and hotel chain and such.

Johnny Crunch already did that...

it will have four giant water jets that will be able to push the ship to speeds of more than 27 to 28 knots.

So.... faster than 28 knots then.

or the size one-and-a half football fields, plus a basketball court.

How is that - in ANY way - convenient OR relatable?

How often do you see a basketball court adjacent to a football field, much less "one-and-a- half" football fields adjacent to each other?

Explain it to me lenfromack. I'm extra stupid today.
 
2012-07-28 12:33:50 PM  
FTFA: It's unclear whether Azzam - which means "determination" in Arabic - will have some of the aggressive security systems or secret submarines of many of today's Russian yachts.

But if I was a bettin' man...
 
2012-07-28 12:34:16 PM  
Azzam apparently also means "repeat" in Fark native tongue.

My private F-15E with support crew would be my idea.

You could see what it's like to get novelty amounts of top-shelf ass--not just picking up hot chicks by flaunting your wealth, but much bigger.

For example, for $500 million you could spend $100 million building a small fake town somewhere, and then paying 400 9s and 10s $1 million each (hand-pick them by conducting an international "model search") to populate the town for 1 year. Then you can just bang your way through it on your own terms like there's no tomorrow. Or you could pay them each a base salary of $100k with huge "incentives" per fark. You would then have the unreal experience of hundreds of hot chicks literally climbing over themselves to get at your junk.

Then again, I guess the yacht alone could basically produce a similar effect, but it wouldn't be the complete novelty controlled environment.

/um, no, I don't spend a lot of time thinking about stuff like this, why do you ask?

Probably Prince Al-waleed bin Talal that's having the boat built. He had a private 747, now he has a private A380. And while he is a Saudi prince, his money comes from investments.

At least they didn't say "some" 27 or 28 knots. God I hate that.

200 chicks at the same time, dude.

I had a co-worker at my weekend job, who just would get so pissed off at the waste and conspicuous consumption of yachts and their owners. It didn't help that the owner of where we worked kept a moderate sized yacht in Florida.

So, when the mail came, and with it the onwers yachting magazine, I'd make sure to leqve it out for my co-worker, just to get hi worked up. The best was the time I left it out, open to a section of an article about the yacht another Saudi prince was having built. The section dealt with the custom shower stall he had in the stateroom. As I recall, it was 7x4x4 feet and carved out of a single, solid block of onyx. My co-worker was ranting against that for a week.
