    See now, I wouldn't even buy this if I was a multimillionaire! I'd just feel stupid doing so.

    Is there anything you wouldn't buy even if you were stinking rich, out of principle or something else? Things that you'd be 'expected' to buy, I mean.
    I don't think I'd personally want a ridiculously flashy sports car, because I don't give a damn about cars. Designer baby clothes is another thing I wouldn't go for. Nice clothes yes, stupidly expensive designer , no.

    Thoughts?

    That's true! That's another thing I'd feel stupid buying.

    Is there anything you'd think, 'I can afford that, but naaah!' to?

    I'm not a drinker, but i've heard of people paying thousands per bottle in expensive bars/clubs in London and other big cities around the world. These guys are stupidly rich though (and spoilt :tongue:).

    No way I would pay that for any food or drink, I mean food and drink should definetly be enjoyed but I think there is a limit to which it can be enjoyed. Like a good steak that costs 20 quid will probably taste just as good to me than a steak that costs 200.

    Hmm I guess things that were expensive without being any better for it, like solid gold nail clippers. Or a hat made from the fur of an exotic lemur.

    I can't understand champaigns either, it's just some waste product of yeasts' anaerobic respiration...= =

    + for some reason smileys make my computer break down )^(

    But I suppose some people have stacks of money and rather than using it wisely, they think buying some expensive ham was more important...
