I'm just bitter because I submitted this several days ago, but I love the $100,000 Versailles-inspired hen house. With chandeliers.

I kinda dig the custom-designed Tailgate trailer with slideout bar, but it really should come with the option to paint the side with your team's helmet logo

They DO realize people EAT the chickens they raise right? I think housing them in a versailles inspired henhouse with a chandalier would be worse than naming them. To say nothing of the "waste clean-up " issue

$99k? You can buy an Ultralight helicopter for less than half that. And you're not confined to a lake.

But, like functional jetpacks, only one person gets all the fun.

CSB: Just about the only Archie comic I ever read in my entire life had a side bit with Jughead flying around in a propeller backpack with a helicopter beanie. I remember it because it was obvious, even to a seven year old, that the artist was letting out some of his funky graphic design side because no one would notice or care.

They'd be Perfect for Burning Man, if, you know you hand-made them from scratch and didn't spend $25k for them out of a catalog....OTOH you'd probably lose "street cred" there if they weren't actually edible.

Oh god, that is the single funniest thing I'm going to see all week.

Can you imagine being that poor model? You moved to the big city, you've been a waiter for years, hoping for that big break, and you're almost ready to move back home, when suddenly your agent calls. Neiman Marcus needs a last-minute stand-in for their Christmas catalogue.

"Awesome!" you think. "I can totally see myself posing as the rich dude with a cognac by the fireside. This is going to get me noticed! Could be my big break!"

Then you get to the study bright and early, and there's just this cupcake costume. And the photographer gives you a meaningful nod.

I haven't eaten any of my hens, just their eggs. Though, I have eaten those that turned out to be roosters. But I never liked them anyway :P

This. I'd much rather build myself a kit helicopter and fly it around than waste $99K on some stupid water jetpack.

Even better would be "Nieman-Marcus Cookie" go-karts. You'd have to hand out copies of the recipe wherever you went, though.

This indeed. The water jetpack thing looks like a hell of a lot of fun, in a fairly limited way. If I owned a cottage on a lake I'd consider spending about $2k on one. $99k? Yeah fark that noise.

If you have the money to spend $100,000 on a henhouse, then chances are that you have enough money to hire someody to clean the henhouse and you don't have to worry about putting something on the table.

I've flown the JetLev down in Key West. There's videos of me on you tube flying it.
It's a blast but I can't understand why it's so darned expensive. There's a competitor on the market now that looks a little more controllable.

You drag the power unit behind you. It's essentially a jet ski with the output directed up that hose to the nozzles.
