    I don't understand people who are ready to cash out enourmous amounts of money for useless vintage things. I liked yacht the most.

    I guess it's all relative. If you have 86mil to spend on some art work then i don't think it's going to break the bank.

    In your mind.
    Or open an art school for kids with the 86m, so that way you have endless random art while helping people. But i'm sure the guy who sells the art does something like that, right?

    People who have this type of money to spend are often involved in philanthropy as they get older. For all we know that painting may end up in a museum for everyone to enjoy.

    People like Andrew Carnegie spent much of their accumulated wealth on building libraries for people, pension funds etc. You could argue this was a waste because the money might have been better spent feeding starving children but that doesn't mean his contribution was lacking or misspent.

    I think that those who need food will somehow manage to get books, once they are fed.
    From place where I am, there is a problem to get good technical literature for little money, but everyone who is willing will find a way to get it anyway. It would be a much harder, if I needed to worry about food as well.

    It reminded me of that rich guy who spent like $300 Million Dollars having Napoleon Bonaparte's marbled floors installed into his Jumbo Jet Plane.
