OMG Michael Dell's house is Hideous. LOL it looks like an office park.

Ugh Larry Ellison. COuldn't spend the 3 million on new eyebrows? Thanks to s c h m u c k s like him Nocal real estate is at such crazy, nosebleed levels.

My favorite is the HP guy's house. Pretty and tasteful. And do I see a guest house?

Looks very contemporary. Too bad we cannot see the interior.

... so many bedrooms? Never used. Just to show: I am rich!

I always wonder when the number of bathrooms is even higher than the bedrooms...
Must be a bad cook in-house...

Slide 3: Why would someone build a 23 million dollar home next to a highway?

My, how times have changed.

Instead of feeling envious and trying to emulate these people, we get angry and sick to our stomachs at their ridiculous excess.

It's about freaking time!


I'm especially amused by Oprah. She *needs* dozens of acres of sculpted SoCal grounds and a freaking tea house to "restore herself" ?! I guess it's exhausting and disconcerting to wander around a 50 million dollar 23,000 square foot mansion every day.

You came to that conclusion how?

I'm neither envious, angry or sick to my stomach. Everyone should want to emulate them. I wouldn't trade for the 22 million dollar one next to the highway but would love to have that spread Oprah has. That's nice, a lot of large established trees well spread out. Similar to where I'm at now except with much, much smaller home.

That's how I feel. I can't say that I'm remotely interested in looking at the slideshow because I just think it's all so obnoxious. I don't understand the idea of having rooms in one's house that one never uses...or uses just once or twice a year. I remember reading/hearing that Aaron Spelling's wife, Cindy, had a "gift-wrapping room" in their mansion. WTF?? A room dedicated to wrapping gifts? Are you kidding me?

(And I find it particularly galling in today's economy with such high unemployment that one person is making SO MUCH money while his company has likely laid off employees or put on a hiring freeze. What benefits the economy more? One person making a salary of -- say -- $1M, or having that $1M salary divided amongst 10 to 20 employees making $50K to $100K each? And I'm not even talking about the CEOs' bonuses and stock options, etc.)

Only a fool should want to emulate them.

We all end up in the same sized piece of real estate in the end; a 6.5 X 2.5 box six feet under. What waste to pour so much money and materials into an over-the-top self-serving private playground.
