Hummers On Water, And Then Some

If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound? If a billionaire has a lot of money, must he spent more of it than a non-billionaire? Is there a point where consumption becomes immoral?

From The world's greatest super-yachts by Mike Steere:

At 160 meters long, there is nothing quite as luxurious as the world's largest and most expensive super-yacht -- Dubai.

Except, of course, for the next nineteen boats that make up the top twenty super-yachts on the planet.

Packed with more features than a Bond villain's base, including jet-ski docks, indoor swimming pools, helicopter pads (in some cases two helipads), Jacuzzis and submarines, no expense is spared on these ocean-going giants.

The internationally-renowned Fort Lauderdale Boat Show is set to get underway at the end of October, where many of the world's top super-yachts will be on display. Now, you can take a look at some of the biggest and best yachts in existence.
I’d be willing to bet that one of these “super-yachts” contributes more to global warming than most small towns in the United States do. If I was a religious man, the word sinful would come to mind. Since I’m not religious, I think I’ll go with the word disgusting.
