When You Have Too Much Money

If you’re tired of scrimping and saving, here are some ideas for spending your kids’ inheritance on yourself before you go:

• Food. The priciest hamburger in the world is probably the FleurBurger. It’s made with foie gras and a special truffle sauce, served with black truffles on the side (and a bottle of Chateau Petrus 1990) at the Fleur de Lys in Mandalay Bay, in Las Vegas, for $5,000.

• Drink. A bottle of Bowmore whiskey, a 54-year old Scottish single malt, went for auction in Edinburgh in 2012. The bottle was expected to sell for as much as $240,000 as a collector’s item.

• Accommodations. The Royal Penthouse Suite at the Hotel President Wilson in Geneva, Switzerland, offers guests a private fitness center, a library, a billiards room, and breathtaking views of the mountains for $65,000 per night.

• TV. Watch your favorite shows on the PrestigeHD Supreme Rose TV, made from 61 pounds of 18-karat rose gold inset with 72 1-carat diamonds. Price: $2.25 million.

• Jeans. Neiman Marcus Stores offers Couture Swarovski Crystal Jeans for $10,000 a pair.


Watch The Typos!

Actual corrections sent to readers:

  • Important notice: If you bought our Easy Sky Diving book, please make the following correction: on Page 8, line 7, the words state zip code should read pull rip cord.
  • In a notice last week, we said Mr. Oscar Hoffnagle is a defective on the police force. This was a typographical error. Mr. Hoffnagle is, of course, a detective on the police farce. [Notice the second typo now in the final word.]
