Found out Larry Ellison owns the sixth largest island in Hawaii. He paid $500 million for it in 2012. Making it the most expensive island ever sold.

Super yachts for billionaires and sports cars for millionaires. Both are depreciating assets, unless you're buying a 1 of 1 or a super rare model, and the upkeep, so you're really just losing money. The average cost to maintain a super yacht is something like $4.75 million so you really need to have "fuck you money".

Rich? Aston Martin or top of the line Porsche 911
Wealthy? house in Malibu
Ultra-wealthy? NFL team

I think all the shit Paul Allen did. Whereas Billy G poured all his focus on making money then his one or two foundation things, Paul just went around collecting the worlds largest superyachts with full recording studios, local NFL & NBA teams, starting hacker-type think tanks to solve the worlds problems, funding the largest plane in the world, made top notch museums to hold all the cool stuff he was interested in like vintage military aircraft and computers.

His super yacht had two helicopters, a submarine, an ROV, a swimming pool, a music studio and a basketball court. He lent it out for studying a rare fish off some remote island.

Funny thing is that most of Allens wealth went into real estate. The guy practically owns all of Seattle and parts of Bellevue. His real estate portfolio is where he put the majority of his wealth and he was probably one of the top 5 wealthiest guys in the country. You wouldn't have modern say Seattle without Allen.

Sweet cars and mansions are chill and all but it's tough to beat racing to the moon like Bezos and Musk are doing. There's literally 1st world countries that aren't able to do what these two are doing "on the side".

Right I finally can post this. Was in Dubai, really near where the Sheikha live (one of the wives of the sheikh - king). Every other evening or so you could hear her fly out using her chopper and flying about an hour later or so. She basically uses a helicopter to go get railed by the Sheik and then flies back.

I think staking yourself to win boat/car/sailing races comes far up on the list. Like Lawrence Stroll, the Canadian billionaire who bought a formula 1 team so that his son could be a driver...

You run for President saying you won't get a dime as salary then win.

Realistically, if you are a billionaire, buying an island is doable, easily. Do you want to really show off? Do something that not even other billionaires can do.

Elites in Latin American banana republics get up to some funny shit. Like blatantly using your mercenaries to rig an election for your brother and then having him appoint your son as the leader of the state-run oil company. You're pretty much untouchable if you can buy a country.
