LivingDeadX1: justneal: but but but downloading movies, hurts the industry!!!You owe me a new keyboard.
oldfarthenry: Meh. A luxury submarine or airship would be way cooler.
gshepnyc: 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.
GoldSpider: Somebody should do something about this. There ought to be a law.
Onkel Buck: I can hear the bellyaching now "Why does anyone need a boat that big?"/Because he can

He Who Shall Not Be Named: 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.
shoegaze99: He Who Shall Not Be Named: If men buy big things to compensate for a small penisThey 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.
