    I'll chip in. I've always wanted to go bowl whenever I feel. *mmm... its 2am, and I feel like bowling*

    For real though, why would you need something that big. You could have a different room for any mood you are in. Like I feel sad, I'll go spend time in room #134 (blue room)

    Some interesting (amazing!) points:
    • The house has 22 bedrooms and a heated marble driveway(!!!).
    • Equipt with a "panic room" in case of "terrorist attack".
    • 5 swimming pools!!!
    • The house can be computer controlled from anywhere in the world.
    • Cinema.
    • Bowling alley.

    You can't afford it - but maybe you can hack into it. ;)

    Well a panic room. I might have to reconsider.

    and the heated drive would be nice. we got 6 inches of snow last night, and It would have been nice to not have to shovel.

    Let's hope it's not Windoze driven.

    I think it's a little naff myself.

    Marble drive... okay, how devoid of taste does one have to be to have anything in marble, nevermind the driveway.

    Like I said I think it's a little naff. ;)

    Yeah - a marble drive seems a bit of a waste - slippery as hell when wet.

    I'd think one inlaid with gemstones would provide more traction.

    Yeah, me too, I wouldn't buy it if I could....course that's nothing to do with the fact that I'm just a tad bit envious ;)

    Well, for less than half the price, you could buy a new yacht just like Greg Norman's.

    Me, I'd prefer that.

    Edit: Of course, when it feels "too big", you can always scoot away on the 42-foot boat that it keeps on one of its decks. :D

    I'd rather have a handful of smaller places scattered in various exotic locales around the world...

    When you get those, let me know and I'll visit with my yacht, if you'll allow me. ;)

    Or any number of other vehicles...

    I like how the dive instructor is included with the list of "gear" :D

    If you were a billionaire (which this is the target audience of), you'd have this, and those...;)

    Well if we all chipped in and got a bedroom, its only a bit over $6M a piece. ;) and I'm sure it would be interesting with 22 Mac loving people in a house. I bet we could at least sell the rights to some reality tv/ crap producer to cover some of the expenses.

    I think Bill Gates paid $55million for his home in Washington.
    Thats a really nice home, I bet the guy that owns Virgin Mobile would buy it, then have it reconstructed on his private island. :rolleyes:

    BTW: If edesign were to get this house, would it come complete with edesign's "bunker"? :D

    Sounded more like Edna Mode to me. :)

    My chip-in: If you've got $135M sitting around waiting to be spent on a house, don't buy someone else's house. Build your own house, to YOUR specs. Why would you want someone else's castoff?

    yesh, another really good point. You wouldn't have to live in that "bad" area either.

    I guess if you could afford that then getting all bent out of shape thinking who is going to clean that place and maintain the facillities and landscape and on and on - it is like running a company - you would need a staff of 10 to 12 me thinks - ahhh to be rich and able to spur on the economy by paying little to others to cook, clean and fix up after me...maybe in the next go round ;)
