If money were no matter, you could own and maintain corporate jets, mega yachts, whatever. What extravagant item would you buy for your own personal enjoyment?

energyman, human females are not for sale!

If it could be bought, health as a gift for somebody who really needs it at the moment.

Pentax 645Z with the whole range of lenses, my own studio, and some large format cameras... and pretty much all the other stuff needed.

Nah, just a desire to be far away from other humans... but surrounded by luxury.

Depends on many factors, really. Money was ruled out as a limiting factor, so theoretically Australia. But honestly, there's a lot of it I could just never use. Plus the pesky UN regarding the repatriation of all the Australians, etc., etc. In the long run, something like that just wouldn't be worth the trouble. Sure, I could pay someone else to do it, but it would still drag out in courts for decades if not beyond my lifetime. Ah, the smell of napalm in the morning. *sigh*

Anyway, the primary characteristics of the island would be low "feeling" humidity. Larger islands retain more humidity, so they feel more humid than smaller islands. Some islands have both humid and arid sections, so that could be nice. I'd have to travel to them and experience them prior to purchase. Then there would be other minor details, like whether or not they were controlled by pirates.

These powered by 10 of these while living on Muso's private floating city.

Well, if that is the case, you picked the wrong luxury item. There has to be cooks, sailors, cleaning lady, mechanists, techies, etc so that thing could work. Some of whom maybe even voted Obama and will attempt to clarify things to you. Not to mention all those new friends one gets when one becomes rich. Oh, and relatives.

If I was stinky rich, I wouldn't let anyone know about it. I'd dress cheap, eat fresh stuff of course, and tell everyone that I live on some kind of government early retirement programme because I am completely nuts. Therefore it is useless to engage in a conversation with me and explain to me the finer details of the latest development in croatian/serbian/etc party, or debate R vs D with me, or any other such "advanced topic". When the word spreads around that I am nuts, I can finally live like a laughing buddha.

So all I need is retirement funds, or a small dotcom that ticks a bit of income. Organic food and cheap clothes are already here. :D

Putin isn't filthy rich. He's filthy, and rich, but that's an entirely different game. :twisted:

A very nice off grid mansion, complete with its own datacenter running Folding@Home. The servers would be upgraded every other year, with the old stuff auctioned off at low prices to other Linux users.

I would also phase out GMOs/factory fasrming and fossil fuels, replacing them with organic farming and green energy.

You just rent them. Or maybe a weekly lease.
