Big boats, lots of wine, a spooky find

Fancy wine, a bigger boat, teens texting, and more wild numbers.

25k: Bottles of wine being auctioned off by Taiwanese billionaire and Yageo Corp. founder Pierre Chen. Though the haul, worth ~$50m, is the biggest, most-expensive wine collection to ever hit the auction block, Chen has been collecting bottles for 40+ years and has even more. He’ll serve some when he opens his first restaurant in Paris, where he’ll act as chief sommelier.

A white, two-storey home with black shutters, a white yacht, several bottles of red wine, and several heart notifications on a blue background.

679 feet: The length of Four Seasons’ new superyacht, which will accommodate 195 guests and 210 crew when complete. It’ll feature a 66-foot-long pool and a four-deck private suite with its own kitchen for the wealthy elite who are not too scared to go on a cruise after watching 2022’s Palme d’Or winner Triangle of Sadness.

237: The median number of notifications US teens receive on an average day, per a study from Common Sense Media and the University of Michigan’s C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. They only engage with a median of 46 per day, thanks to blocking, filtering, or prioritizing apps. It’s worth noting, however, that the max number was a whopping 4.5k+ notifications delivered with 1.2k+ seen.

$769k: The asking price for the Turgeon Funeral Home in Millsbury, Massachusetts, where a sign reads, “Probably haunted.” It was built as a single-family home in 1850, but has operated as a funeral home since 1948. It features three bedrooms, two kitchens, and both an attic and a basement to maximize its spooky ghost potential.
