When you hear someone has a million dollars, you can’t help but to think they’re rich. But this isn’t the 1960’s anymore where a million dollars meant you were set for life. These days, a million dollars can buy you… say… 2 large screen TV’s, 1 Pair of headphones, 2 custom T-shirts, and believe it or not, 28 servings of specially-made pudding. Yup – it’s true. Have a look and see how you can spend a million dollars…
Need somewhere to stay for about 15 days? Forget AirBNB, when you can get the Royal Penthouse Suite in the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva. It comes with your own library, fitness center, grand piano, bulletproof windows and, you’re very own elevator. Cost: $65,000 a night. Or, you can take that money and yourself a cheapo room for the next 70 years at a motel 6 in Detroit.
Are you a huge Beyoncé fan? Then forget the long line-ups and book your own private performance for a cool mil. Or, suck it up and get yourself tickets to her next 16,905 shows (if she lives that long).
Lil’ Wayne has no problem rockin’ a 114 carat diamond studded limited-edition pair of Beats by Dre. And you can too with that mil. Otherwise, you can buy yourself 29 lifetime’s worth (or 333,333 pairs) of Labtec Earphones.
If you believe that bigger is better, then take that mil and get yourself two 152-inch Panasonic TVs at $500,000 a piece. You know, one to rock and one to stock. Or, if you don’t mind a ton of burnt pixels, fill your house with 2,857 Westinghouse TVs for $350 a piece.
Think you’re a high roller now with that mil? Then roll with the richest by buying 5 shares of stock at $177,265 a piece from the richest man in the world’s company; Warren Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway. Or, fill your portfolio with 295, 857 shares of Zygna.
New York or Kernersville
When it comes to real-estate, it’s all about location, location, location. Want to live in New York, then a one 812-square-foot apartment will cost you that mil. Or, you can move to Kernersville, North Carolina and enjoy 6,041 square-foot of more space with a spacious country home.
Sexy or Smart
If you really want to show off that mil, then you’ll want to consider getting two Rolls-Royce Phantom Coupe convertibles at $489,000 a piece. Or, make the smart choice by getting 55 Smart Cars at $17,890 each. Wait, that’s not so smart.
Want a garage full of sick motorbikes? Then get 6 MTT Turbine Superbikes at $150,000 each. Or, if you own a ranch, 377 scooters at $2,649 will work too.
You can never have enough T-Shirts. That’s why with a mil, stocking up on 167,504 Hanes T-Shirts at $5.67 each is the better buy. But, if you want the most expensive T-Shirt ever made, embedded with 16 certified diamonds, then get two Superlative Luxury T-Shirts at $400,000 a piece.
You can’t make a good pasta sauce without mushrooms. So depending on your tastes, you can buy 250,000 pounds of regular mushrooms for a mil, or, for the most amazing pot of spaghetti ever, 9 pounds of white truffles.
With a mil, you can pop some bubbly with 3 bottles of Shipwrecked 1907 Heidsieck that was lost at sea back in 1916, which costs $275,00 per bottle. Or, make the celebration last way longer with 288,184 bottles of André Brut at $3.47 each.
Once you try the pudding at the Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel in England, served with edible gold leaves and diamonds for $34,531, you’ll want to take that million and get it 28 more times. Or, pig out on 4, 026, 845 of your run-of-the-mill Hunt’s pudding at $0.25 per cup.
