"Could You Live in a 90,000 Square Foot Home?"


Yes, I know it would be difficult to 'downsize' from your present abode and live in some 90,000 square foot shack. I mean, it only has 30 bathrooms and a measly 10 kitchens. How could anyone live in such squalor?

And the poor dear somehow makes do with only spending ONE MILLION DOLLARS a year on clothes.

Ohhh, the inhumanity!
‘The Queen of Versailles’: the best film on the Great Recession

“The Queen of Versailles” began as a documentary about a time-share billionaire, his ditzy wife, and their grotesque quest to build the largest house in the United States of America. It ended as perhaps the single best film on the Great Recession.

The movie was supposed to be about conspicuous consumption. David and Jackie Siegel were building a 90,000 square foot palace nicknamed “Versailles.” The documentarians wanted to see what kind of people would do that. So they embedded with the Siegel family.

  2. What did it for me in this film was when the mother went into the kids room and asked if they were feeding the pet iguana. These rich bratty kinds could have cared less, the animal was dead.
