I couldn't think of a better way of saying it, so "stuff," it is. The most expensive things? Either way, this is a compilation of most expensive stuff I have come across recently, all for folks who don’t know how much a gallon of milk costs. The consumer goods are all in-production and available to buy. No esoteric vintage, gold-plated speculums here. These are also available for private ownership. I am sure a US aircraft carrier could be considered one of the "most expensive," things so I have discounted stuff like that. They are in no particular order, although I have left the most expensive "thing," to last.

Oakley Prescription Sunglasses

Being the site that we are, we also like sharing cool products found scattered around the Google homepage, and some of the coolest are Oakley prescription sunglasses. The company has been around for some time now, upwards of 40 years and they remain at the top of their game. Despite the influx of alternative sports good manufacturers, it’s still cool to be found sporting a pair of Oakley frames, or wandering around with one of their backpacks strapped to your back.

Luxury Real Estate - Castles

By any one’s definition, owning your own castle must be considered the ultimate in luxury real estate. A few attempts have been made to build castles over the last few years, but the prohibitive costs are such that one tends to see over-sized villas or high-rises instead. So, this article deals with what I consider to be genuine castles. Most of them are extremely old and the running costs are such that they could only appeal to a genuinely wealthy individual. By genuinely wealthy, I mean bottomless pockets or you already own a country. (Or an oil company). Most of these are for sale, or available to rent, although some are just fascinating.

This first one is Eilean Donan castle in Scotland, situated on an island at the point where three great sea lochs meet, and surrounded by some pretty dramatic scenery, particularly in winter.

Luxury Real Estate – Swimming Pools

Any piece of luxury real estate worth it’s salt will probably have a swimming pool on the property. Inside, outside, or both perhaps. This is a guide to the most luxurious, most insane, most expensive, most photographed, largest – and even the ugliest swimming pools in the World

Although this started as a serious look at swimming pools in luxury homes, it is now just a little fun. As I began researching swimming pools I discover some pretty amazing variations. Not all these are private, luxury swimming pools, in fact, some of them are just plain scary. But they were so interesting I decided to forget about private pools and just make this a compilation of swimming pools from around the world.

What Next?

It was so unfair! Jimmy Smarts was cursing his luck. He’d just been fitted with his first sub-cranial neural computer, and was disappointed to discover that he was only capable of providing 420GB of RAM. 

You never knew your personal capacity until it had been fitted, and the waiting around was one of the most stressful times in a young person’s life.
The computers were only fitted on your sixteenth birthday; until that time you were limited to standard, low speed mechanical interfaces. As the youngest member of his class, he’d been the last to have the operation, and the bulk of his classmates were in the 600-700 range. One member, Jason White, an obnoxious bully at the best of times, boasted 1280, almost unheard of. He’d already been voted “Class Member Most Likely To Succeed”, and the MegaCorps were sniffing around.

Luxury Real Estate – GigaYachts – “A”

Whilst not fitting the term “Luxury real estate,” in the traditional sense of the word, i.e. on land, the current crop of giga-yachts or mega-yachts certainly fall under my definition of the word. Massive, spectacularly-outfitted floating mansions in fact.

Conspicuous over consumption? Absolutely. Insanely expensive? Oh yes. Most of the final prices are carefully kept secret. Either that, or no one actually knows how much they cost.

Introducing “A” – the most recent member of the giga-yacht club, and to put things in perspective, the fuel tank is 757,000 liters. Diesel fuel costs around €1.40 per liter currently, so it would cost just over €1 million to fill the fuel tank. $1.4 million US just to fill the tank. That amount of fuel will last 15.5 days at cruising speed.  So the cost of building the ship becomes a little academic when the running costs are taken into consideration. I am exaggerating slightly as I have no doubt they are not paying retail for the fuel, but you get the idea. Seeing as the owner also owns one of the largest coal companies in the world, I very much doubt the cost of fuel is an issue.
