    I thought it was kind of ugly myself. But I also noticed that it was made from "healing" gems. Maybe the person who bought it doesn't have the best of health and thought it would help. :shuffle:

    A $2.00 drugstore enema would probably make him feel much better than sitting in a 1.74 mil bathtub.

    Cleaning solution derived from gold dust and ground diamonds.

    It must be prettier in person; but if I were the maid I wouldn't go anywhere near it with Soft Scrub and a brush.

    Depends on what his health problem is. ;)

    I just thought that part made it more interesting than having paid a lot for a bathtub. People will do all sorts of crazy things to restore their health and pay a lot more too.

    :rofl:

    Myself, I would not pay a $100,000 bill over 4.1 million for that.

    Do you have an address where I can submit some of my work? I only charge $95,000 for my photos, clearly a steal!

    I firmly believe that people should be able to spend their money however they choose (as long at is legal).

    Having said that................REALLY? There is a point at which it is just silly. A point at which it doesn't get better, it just gets stupid. How do you even appreciate that, and why would you. It is a bath! It is a toilet! Come on!

    I wouldn't hang that photo in my house if they gave it to me for free.

    That loud, continuous ringing we're hearing? Could be our sarcasm detectors. :D

    Yes, seriously.

    The composition is perfect.

    The austere, almost desolate landscape is haunting (you'd never believe it was Rhein).

    When I look at it, I feel like it's drawing me in (which says as much about my need for medication as the photograph, I know :p).

    Plus everything that was quoted in the article.

    Stunning, stunning, stunning.

    I seriously like it too. Love the deceptively simple lines and the contrasting textures of the water, grass and sky. Lovely.

    I'd put it on my wall- but I wouldn't pay more than $500 for it though. But then my art budget doesn't run into the millions. ;)
