If I were a billionaire, I would squander untold sums of money on all manner of things that many people would find stupid. I would buy anything that tickled my fancy, mostly cars though. I agree with some types of money squandering, but to drop nearly $800k on a bathtub is crazy.
An Italian company called Baldi has carved a three-person tub out of a solid piece of crystal rock. The tub was made for a window display at Harrods and can be yours for only $790,000. Scoff as I might, Baldi has already sold a similar tub.
A Russian billionaire dropped $858,763 on a similar tub in 2008. The chunk of rock the tub is carved from was found in the Amazon rainforest, is 2.5 meters in diameter, and took six months to carve. If anything has ever screamed I am a rich douche, this is it.
