The other day I was musing to the wife about how ridiculous it would be to spend stupid money, just because I had stupid money to spend. I mean, if I was a billionaire, I said, I could not imagine spending $150,000 on a car, no matter how electric or cool it was. It is one of these truisms I’ve always held to. Lots of money would never overcome common sense.
And then I heard that Harrison Ford’s gun from Blade Runner was up for auction. Here let me show it to you:
It was expected to fetch $150,000, and instead went for $270,000.
And yes, if I was a billionaire, I would probably buy this.
