Here are this week’s weirdest ways to spend money.


January 3, 2020

Stock market treat you well last year? Maybe it’s time to invest some of those hard-earned dollars in something different.

Here are a few of the most creative ways to spend money that we came across this week:

  • 9 ½ foot remote-controlled bald eagle, $499.95. Are you looking for another way to show the world you’re a red-blooded American patriot? Well, let us tell you: The eagle has landed. And by eagle, we’re talking about this peerless propeller-powered remote-controlled bald eagle, of course.
  • “Most realistic” racing simulator, $185k. If you’re the kind of 36-year-old who’s constantly frustrated by how little time you spend at video game arcades, this ultra-realistic car racing simulator is exactly what you need — even if costs only slightly less than an actual race car. 
  • Formula 1 Speaker dock, $8.5k. Speaking of race cars, this Formula 1 speaker dock — which is made out of a retired 8-cylinder F1 racecar engine of your choosing and crafted in Modena, Italy — is an absolute must-have.
