DailyDirt: Expensive Things To Buy...

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

The new nouveau riche might not be that interested in Maseratis and yachts. New millionaires (or billionaires) are buying stuff like electric sports cars and trips into space. Here are a few more super-expensive items to add to your shopping list, if you have the means. By the way, StumbleUpon can recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    I was expecting to see "Books about Flies" on your list. There were two books on Amazon that were listed at $23 million dollars, plus $3.99 shipping and handling.

    Good thing Qatar has lots of money. They're going to need it to fill the balloons, since the world is running out of helium.
