After venting my spleen in the last post I thought I'd post a story about a more amusing waste of money.
The man who spent £100,000 turning his apartment into a set from Star Trek Voyager has, surprise, surprise, gone bankrupt. Apparently his wife has left him and he has maxed out 14 credit cards. He tried to sell the apartment on eBay (yeah, that was going to work) for $2 Million but with no success.
In fairness to the guy he actually thought he had a (crazy) business plan. He could get other Trekies to pay for their homes to be remodeled. He would have been a millionaire but his customers mothers wouldn't let them get their rooms done. ;-)
