Am I the only one who looks at that above ground style pool and pictures the side rupturing, with water carrying everyone inside over the edge of the building?

Only three days after it was on reddit.  In before  "It's a rendering, I can tell by the pixels and parabolic curves".

Where'd you dig up a transcript from Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous?

"It'll be worth $390 million when it goes on the market..."

The worth will be determined by the market, and it won't be $390 million.

Make sure you take the inner slide to the infinity pool and not the outer slide to infinity

I found that in the trash at Lehman Bros. after they all got their bonuses for tanking the economy.

If I had fark-you money, I would totaly want a water slide in my penthouse. Don't hate.

As it is, I have to settle for a slip'n'slide and an issue of Penthouse

even just the issue of Penthouse, here

If I could afford a water slide in my penthouse I'd find some sucker to take it off my hands and use the money for what money is for.  Too late.  Very much a hater of flatulent avarice.  To my credit, a whole lot of 19th c. French people seem to agree.

You think agreeing with the French about anything is to your credit??

No!  The French should all be lined up and pelted with cheese!  Cause.. France!

~170 meters down isn't that infinite, but I assume you mean the infinite void resulting from the rapid deceleration at the end of the super-fun freefall ride.

You are correct, sir.

Actually, if I had the money I'd do it too.  laugh it up

Stairs to the top of the water slide?  Seriously?  If you're going to build a fancy schmancy water slide, in my outdoor infinity pool on the deck of my fabulous penthouse apartment, I sure as heck expect the architect to include a glassed-in elevator so I don't actually have to walk up a flight up stairs!  What are the designer, architect, and developer thinking?  That I am some commoner who can walk a flight of stairs when I want to use my water slide?

You misunderstand. The water is actually being propelled upwards. You are shot UP the slide to the heated jacuzzi at the top. The stairs are for the servants to bring you a fresh assortment of snacks and towels.

You people are so retarded. I can buy a home in Alabama for less than 100k and you idiots would want to spend 300M on a house. Retarded.

For 390 Million, I was expecting this kind of slide with a little less back-and neck-breaky

The housing in greater CLE is very cheap, in good shape and in low crime areas.  The point of a 390 mm house isn't housing.  It's to let people know that if you can piss away 390 mm for something as basic as a home, you won.

That thing caused so many  broken necks that it was almost always closed until they could get insurance again. And then lose it.

Give it a few weeks.  Those people are so insecure that I'm sure the moment they found out about this, plans were put in the works to trump it.  Dubai has the spending impulse of a rags to riches boxer, or powerball-winning redneck.

Silly me.  My penthouse water slide only goes down.  It is really ostentatious to have one that shoots you up.  The way some people waste money!

Oh you gotta have the waterslide as you need to keep a large group of 20 something year old girls entertained. IF I was a billionaire I assume they would go for a dude like me.

It would probably make more sense just to have your servants pick up a kilo of coke every week.

There's a reason us locals called it Traction Park...

They need loop-de-loops. And barbecue sauce in the water slide. And go-kart tracks going through the middle of the loop-de-loop in the water slide.

Say it with me now. If I had it. aka- if I knew that even with spending it I'd still live rich the rest of my life.

Granted I have a few issues I'd have to take care of first.
