    This is The Most Realistic Racing Simulator (that's what they named it) available from Hammacher Schlemmer for $185,000. I am going to buy one and put it in my arcade. "You don't have an arcade." Fine, I am going to buy one and put it in my garage. "You don't have a garage.... / Continue →

    This is a video highlighting the construction of a $2.5-million Patek Philippe 5175R Grandmaster Chime watch. It is one of the most complicated wristwatches made and actually has a physical chime inside. It also has two faces (like my buddy Terry, what a jerk!), and can be ro... / Continue →

    These are the BFF Console Tables designed by Vick Vanlian and inspired by the styles of Jeff Koons and Takashi Murakami. They're little tables with colorful sexy lady legs and high heels. They cost $5,000 though, making it infinitely cheaper to steal the legs off a mannequin ... / Continue →

    This is the ~75-million year old Velociraptor claw for sale by the Astro Gallery Of Gems in New York. It measures about six-inches long in total length (including attached bone) and would look amazing hanging from my neck. But like, out the side of my neck with blood gushing ... / Continue →

    Aaaaaand that fish is scarred for life. The Floating Fish Dome is a $200 acrylic dome (*spit-take*) that allows pond fish to take a peek of the world above the water's surface and dream of having legs like all the land creatures. Hey -- it's not as cool as it sounds, fish. W... / Continue →

    But they didn't blur the giant ass in the middle? What do you have against tits and not butts? Or -- OR -- could you not tell that was a butt? Fox 5 in New York decided the beautiful (albeit somewhat hard to recognize) titties in Pablo Picasso's Women of Algiers were a littl... / Continue →

    This is the Excalibur wristwatch crafted by watchmaker Roger Dubuis (previously: this version from 2013 which I kind of like more). It features the twelve knights of the round table with their swords drawn while they all solemnly swear to protect fair maidens from sorcerers an... / Continue →

    Seen here hanging out on a very well seasoned grill, these are the stainless steel barbeque skewers made to look like narwhals. They cost $50 for a set of two, although you can get them on sale HERE for $35 for the next three days. You better order fast though if you want the... / Continue →

    This are the Chocolate Tools sold by Firebox. They're made from 100% Belgian chocolate and covered in edible paint to make them look like real metal tools. They cost $23 apiece though (per tool, not set), so they're not for the poor. I'm going to buy the hammer and chase my... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of renderings of the upcoming Bell 525 Relentless, a state-of-the-art helicopter complete with customizable ultra-luxurious interiors. Obviously, I just added one to the top of my must-have list. How much do luxury helicopters go for these days, anyway? I h... / Continue →

    The Joker is a $15 birthday card that, once activated, plays the Happy Birthday song over and over until the battery runs out (~3 hours) or the card is destroyed. I just bought one but I can't decide who to send it to. I guess I should probably send it to somebody with a birt... / Continue →

    This is the $36,000 robotic desk clock available from MB&F. The piece is limited to 99 pieces, or $3,560,000 in gross profit provided they sell them all. For reference, that is more than I would make in my entire life if I lived to be 800. Did I mention it just tells time? ... / Continue →

    This is the $850 MacBook Air inspired toilet seat made and sold by design firm Pinkhouse. The cover is laser-cut from 12-guage steel and can be powder-coated to your color preference. For reference, $850 is just about $830 too much to pay for a toilet seat. If all toilet sea... / Continue →

    Seen here with a terrified passenger aboard, this is the Sinking Titanic Cat Condo available from Hollywood Kitty Company. It costs $2,000, which -- and I'm not sure if you're familiar with cat condo prices, is a little steep. That is like, human condo pricing. Still, maybe ... / Continue →

    This is the Samsung Dream Doghouse. It was built by 12 architects and fabricators over six weeks and cost $30,000 to complete, which is easily $29,800 more than any doghouse should cost. Of course most doghouses don't have treadmills, automatic food dispensers, hydrotherapy p... / Continue →

    Remember the table with swings for seats designed by Duffy London? Well now they're selling bars with swings for seats, in both round and rectangular shapes, starting at $37,500, which is approximately $37,465 outside of my rumpus room budget. Besides, I feel like drinking an... / Continue →
