I can't think of a more ridiculous thing than a yacht. You want to be on a boat, but you want every luxury and convenience of being at home; you want to be on a cruise, but you don't want to be around other people. It's almost by definition something that only a douchebag would have.

I honestly can't imagine what it's like to be so rich I can spend $200 million on a boat that I won't spend more than a week or two on per year, if that. How much does it cost to keep it up and pay for staff? If men buy big things to compensate for a small penis, does he need an electron microscope to take a piss?

I can imagine being rich enough to not have to worry about what I'm spending money on. Going out and buying a $10,000 bottle of champagne and not worrying about it. Seeing a car and just going in and paying cash for it without thinking about the money. I can understand.I still can't wrap my head around paying $200 million for a boat that I will hardly use. This Yacht isn't even the most expensive. I'm pretty sure I saw a magazine article about a yacht that was $1.2 billion dollars. It wasn't even completed and it was expected to go over budget.Imagine winning one of the big U.S. lotteries. The $500 million dollar jackpot all to yourself. By the time you get the lump sum settlement and pay taxes you get around $250 million. Now imagine someone so rich they can spend that much money on a frakking boat. It's like staring into the night sky and trying to imagine the size of the Universe. We know how big the Universe is (just about) but it's actual size is something that not many people can actually understand intellectually.If someone gave me $10 million after taxes I could support my extended family very well for several generations. Just a good safe investment plan and not throwing money away at toys that will never get used.

I'd love a big house-type boat that would alloy me to travel all over the world.

I'd look into getting something that is solar powered or other non-petroleum power, submersible so to withstand perils... (pirates, storms), with some defensive capacity, and be able to simply have underwater viewing capacity.

It would need to be as impossible to sink as possible.

It would need to have room for the family and several guests, and be able to dock and have vehicles (cars and such) ramp out of it.

I don't need a theatre in it, a simple living room with normal sized TV is fine (46-50 inch), and with the ocean or lake right there, I'd say a collapsible hard netting to make a safe "pool" would be fine.

I doubt that I'd come close to 200 millions here, heck, I'd probably would be looking at 1-5 at the most.

But I would need the secret Island base for it... so that might increase the cost.

Meh. A luxury submarine or airship would be way cooler.

If I had the money, I'd buy a boat like that.

I don't know. If I had nothing but money to burn, I would like to live in my house, wake up and walk around Italy for a bit. Then go to bed and wake up in some other exotic place for the day. You just drive your car off the boat, and experience the world, without giving up any conveniences of being at home.

Because he can... need? That was like a Homer Simpson retort.

He Who Shall Not Be Named: If men buy big things to compensate for a small penis


They don't, though. It's just an easy insult for the envious.

Men buy big things because sometimes big things are awesome.

Same with fast things. We see it in every car thread, "small penis, hur dur dur dur," as if the idea that driving something that looks great and is a thrill to drive is something alien.

Sounds cool! Yes, it would be awesome to take a 5-day cruise, enjoying being out on the water, and then retiring to a luxurious room each night to relax, and having the luxury of whatever food and drink you want while you're out there. Great idea!

you want to be on a cruise, but you don't want to be around other people.

Sounds cool! Yes, it would be awesome to enjoy all the luxuries of a cruise, but instead of being surrounded by Aunt Hilda on her 60th anniversary and partying middle-aged women and the Wisconsin Elks Club, you're instead with your hand-selected friends and family, with a crew there to make your trip great. Great idea!

Good points all around. I agree with you, I can see why someone would want this.

That boat is Senior Speielbergo's bug out bag for when the shiat hits the fan. Call it a $200 million insurance policy.

It's all relative.  After your first $10 million you start dreaming of $200 million.  Then you get the power. Then you get the luxury yacht.  It's a lot of money to pay for a near-guaranteed non viral cruise, and worth it.

Look up Russian tycoon Roman Abromovich. He owns a yacht called Eclipse. It makes Spielberg's look like a SKIFF. Talk about $$$. The farking boat has its own sub!

You needn't be so defensive about your small penis. Most people will never see it anyway. God. Reading your posts I can only hope for your sake that you're an adolescent who will one day grow up a little bit. If you're an adult and this is what happens at the end of the struggle to put your thoughts into written words, well, that's just depressing for everyone.
