Would You Buy It? 5 Incredibly Expensive Objects
Most Expensive Car
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to drive at speeds of up to 250 mph on the highway? Well now your dream can come true in the Lamborghini Reventon. And guess what? It only costs $1,600,000! Now really, why would anyone buy this car? I mean, sure it's fast and looks awesome, but couldn't you use that $1,600,000 for something better, something a little less selfish? I will admit, I would like to have this car. But I would never pay so much money for it. The question is, if you had the money, would you buy it?
Most Expensive House
Tired of your small little apartment or house? Wish you could upgrade to something better? If you were Donald Trump you could. He now owns this $125,000,000 house. Now, I personally don't need a house so big that I can get lost in it. Plus, the cost for maintenance would be horrendous! But the question is, would you buy it if you had the money?
Most Expensive Dog Collar
Do you want your dog to look like a king the next time you walk him? If so, this is the dog collar for you. For only $1,800,000, this collar is bound to make your dog look great! "The collar includes 1600 hand-set diamonds with a seven-carat, D-IF, brilliant cut center diamond" (http://www.luxist.com/2007/10/21/the-worlds-most-expensive-dog-collar/). I have two golden retrievers, so I guess I would have to buy two collars just to be fair. If you were a billionaire, would you buy this collar for your dog?
Most Expensive Watch
I usually just use my cellphone to tell time, but I guess that isn't enough for some people. I completely understand the convenience of a wristwatch, but do you really need to spend $1,400,000? Then again, "The Sky Moon Tourbillon Ref. 5002 is the most complicated wristwatch
ever produced by Patek Philippe and also the workshop's first
double-face wristwatch. Its movement consists of 686 parts, some of
which are microscopically small. This rare and exceptional timepiece
features mechanical movement that must be manually wound, a minute
repeater with tourbillon escapement, chime with two “cathedral“ gongs
activated by a slide piece in the case, perpetual calendar with
retrograde date hand, hours and minutes of mean solar time, day, month,
leap year by hands and moon age" (http://www.luxois.com/article/2009/01/22/top-10-most-expensive-watches-in-2009). The question is, would you buy it if you had the money?
Most Expensive Coffee
I am young and don't drink coffee, but I know many people who do. In fact, my parents drink about 16 ounces each every day. But why settle for normal coffee when you could be drinking Kopi Luwak for only $50/cup? And guess what? You're really paying for coffee that "is made from coffee beans eaten, partly digested and then excreted by the Common palm civet, a weasel-like animal" (http://most-expensive.net/coffee-in-world). Sounds tasty. Would you buy this coffee if you had enough money? It would only cost you about $15,000 a year assuming you have a cup a day.
