Unbelievable Expense

New, 1 comment

The UK's Daily Mail is claiming an anonymous Malaysian billionaire has spent, get ready, $4.84B—yes, that "B" is for billion—on a private yacht. Why so expensive? How about 110 tons of gold and platinum, splashed on nearly every surface? Still, this all sounds a little fishy, considering even Malaysia's richest man, Robert Kuok, has a net worth of $12.5B. 40% of his wealth on a bedazzled toy? That's not how you become a billionaire.
