First of all you have to think, 1.4 million is almost double what people spend on home furnishing. Second, one look at the guy and you can tell he doesnt give money to charity. Third, your gonna have to add 15% to the purchase price to import all this crap and then pay maybe 25k to have it delivered. It's an astromomical amount of money. I make 11 percent of this sale so I dont care how much the guy spends. I just think that it would be logical to spend that much money on something else. But then again, I have never had 20 million to spend on a house.

Guys can go to the gym and play a pick up game of basketball with 9 complete strangers and have a blast doing it. How often do you see a girls doing something like that?

Anyway, this could all backfire and I could be ridiculed endlessly. Who knows really.

I call Suprefan a douchebag on a daily basis on this message board. Never met him in person but I know if I did we most likely would laugh about it. I have been meeting people off of message boards for a decade now that I have had disagreements at one time or another with and it turned personal and to name calling. In fact, one guy who I used to argue with quite a bit and we would name call and get really really personal and under eachothers skin but in person we always got along fine.

Anyway, just my .02 on intenet message boards, meeting people and what not.

Srsly, you are ragging on a guy who spent his own money on antique furniture rather than give that to charity?

How much is he required to give? How much do you know he did or didn't give?

I mean, it's not just decadence, it's lame decadence. Imagine how awesome your day would be if you were given a 130k to spend by midnight. You wouldn't buy a bloody china hutch with it.

Fair enough, there's a lot of grey area when it comes to the morals of what somebody does with their money. The money spent on going to Coachella could arguably be spent on charity, but I don't think anybody would begrudge that to anybody. I can't hold anything against somebody who buys a car or whatever or blows their paycheck on cds or booze etc, etc...

But if you run right up the scale past the hazy Grey Area of Guilty But Hard Earned Pleasures, I think we can all agree that 130k china hutch is something that doesn't contribute to a person's quality of life. And if it does, if your 130k china hutch truly makes you happier or healthier than the 130k worth of basic living resources that would keep a few hundred thousand people alive until Monday, well, then you're a china hutch loving freak and probably not fit to be living on your own anyway.

You're right though, it's not this guy's fault at all. I just have a basic and deep-seated mistrust of people with that much money and an overpowering general sense of exasperation at the world we live in.

I find it amusing that everyone is so offended by how much he spends....
1) The house and the antiques are clearly investments for him; he's not going to take home his $130k china hutch and shit on it. I'd guess he's going to help them appreciate in value and then sell. Maybe that's how he got so much money in the first place.
2) He's helping the economy by spending it
3) You have no idea how much he gives to charity-and trust me, if he's that wealthy, he's giving to charity, if only for the tax breaks
4) Why do you care that much about what someone else is doing with their money? He's not a politician spending YOUR money, he's spending his own.
