    They call that art? I'll just print that image 50 times and sell it for 50% off for $2,600.

    What are you waiting for, that's freaking brilliant!

    Want to make a lot of money? Here's what you do:

    Become a kindergarten teacher, give the kids paper and paint and have them throw paint on the paper. Take what people with too much money would call "Artwork" and sell it for 2M+.

    I get the experience you can feel with art, and that's what it's about afterall. Emotions and telling a story.

    But it's foolish to think these people aren't trolling us either. Come on.

    Some people with money remind me of children at zoos just throwing food at animals. They want to just get rid of it and see what happens. The painting George Zimmerman did sold for $100,000. It's like some people have been playing with monopoly money for too long in their life and don't know what to do when they have real cash.

    Well it might as well be sold for 5million, it's just no one will actually buy them.

    The reality is exactly the opposite. While everyone is laughing at a concept they don't understand.
    These people are investing their money in art which gives them a better return than if the money was
    sitting in the bank.
    The market doesn't fluctuate like stocks or bonds and it isn't affected by war, weather, or the economy.
    While people laugh at this the owners are laughing back at them in a much bigger way.
