After recently offering a painting ‘Abstraktes Bild’ by Gerhard Richter valued at $20 million, almost 20 times the price originally paid; the greatest guitarist of all time, and the only person to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame three times, the legendary Eric Clapton is now offering his ultra-rare platinum-cased Patek Philippe 2499 timepiece. Described to be just ‘spectacular’, the rock star’s platinum-cased Patek Philippe is one of just two of its type and the only one which has ever been available for sale. Notably, this legendary masterpiece of horology, which is part of the ‘Slowhand’ Eric Clapton’s extensive watch collection that include several Rolexes, will go under the hammer at the Christie’s Geneva sale on November 12 at the Four Seasons hotel, where it’s expected to fetch a handsome price of $4.3 million.No Comments
How much would you pay to have sex with a beautiful 20 year old Brazilian girl? Would you pay more if that beautiful 20 year old girl was a virgin? What if the whole act was simultaneously a tax write off and raised money for charity? Ok, admittedly we’ve just glossed over some pretty glaring ethical issues, but assuming the girl is not being coerced in any way, it presents an interesting hypothetical question. This is the exact scenario being offered by a real life 20 year old student Brazilian named Catarina Migliorini. Catarina is auctioning her virginity to raise money to build houses for Rio de Janeiro’s poorest residents…
The auction ends at midnight on October 15th and in just a few hours after launching has already received thirteen bids from all over the world. The current high bid for Catarina is $160,000 made by an American named “Jack Miller.” The winner of the auction will be pre-screened for STDs and must wear a condom. Interestingly, in order to avoid local prostitution laws, the physical act will take place on a plane traveling from Australia to the United States. Also, Catarina has offered to provide the winner with verifiable “proof” of her virginity so he’s not getting ripped off.No Comments
How much money did Oracle CEO Larry Ellison make in the fiscal year 2012? Oracle just filed a report with the Securities and Exchange Commission outlying Ellison’s entire lucrative compensation for the year, and it’s impressive. Ellison is currently the sixth richest person in the world with a net worth of $41 billion. He is also frequently one the highest paid CEOs in the world which he might actually deserve considering Oracle’s net income rose 17% during a recession year.
For the fiscal year 2012 which just ended for Oracle, CEO Larry Ellison was paid $96 million. That represents a 24% increase over his 2011 income of $77.6 million. Interestingly, Larry’s base salary is just $1 per year, so the $96 million comes from option grants and other perks. According to their SEC filing, Ellison was granted $90,693,400 worth of Oracle options in 2012. He was also awarded $3.9 million in executive incentive compensation (bonuses). Finally, Oracle paid $1.548 million for Ellison’s personal security and transportation.No Comments
Surrounded by the extraordinary beauty of Clew Bay and by a wonderful variety of vistas, the tallest and largest private island in Clew Bay, off the West Coast of Ireland, the Inish Turk Beg soaks up the kinetic energy that flows to it from the skies and the seas all around. This ‘small island of the wild boar’ where natural dynamism combines with a spiritual metamorphosis, and which is home to a sumptuous multi-million dollar luxury property development, is now offered on sale after its affluent owner suffered some financial problems. Irish-Egyptian businessman Nadim Sadek, the Inish Turk Beg’s owner is selling it for just $4.64 million, a price considerably less than what he actually spent on this breathtaking 65-acre island to turn it into his very own personal haven, boasting ultra-luxurious homes, 4 other small properties, stables, and cutting-edge technology, and other notable amenities.No Comments
