This week’s weirdest ways to spend money

Here are this week’s weird ways to spend money


February 20, 2020

You’ve probably heard that Mike Bloomberg is spending a lot of money on his presidential campaign. (If you haven’t, we hope the rock you live under has WiFi and good snacks, at least… ). 

But don’t let him have all the fun! 

Just because you don’t have a $64B fortune doesn’t mean you can’t find ways to spend egregious sums of your hard-earned spoils. Here are a few ideas:

  • LEX, the Wearable, Bionic Chair, $399. If all of your friends just don’t seem to have enough chairs, it’s time to take matters into your own hands with this slick-looking exoskeletal chair
  • A night at a Jungle Bungalow, $1,070. If merely visiting the zoo during the day is too pedestrian for your tastes, splurge on this overnight luxury package. It lets you put on your PJs next to a random assortment of (surprise) lions, cheetahs, tigers, or Malayan sun bears at a luxury villa in a private zoo in Australia.
  • Cyberphone, $5.9k. This Tesla Cybertruck-inspired iPhone is the only phone you’ll want to be seen FaceTiming Elon Musk with in your new ride.
