They say a million dollars doesn’t buy what it used to. And while that may be true, I’m sure we would all love to have the opportunity to find out for ourselves. The following are some weird (as well as some awesome) things that you could blow your million dollars on.
28 Dinners with President Obama
Recent fundraising dinners with President Obama have averaged $35,000 a plate, which will get you a picture with the President and your name on the official guest list. With a million dollars to spend, you can dine with the President 28 times. Tuxedo or cocktail dress recommended.
5 shares of Berkshire Hathway stock
Class A shares in Berkshire Hathway reached an all time high of $200,000 in August of 2014. A million dollars will buy you 5 shares in the Warren Buffett owned corporation.
Porsche 918 Spyder supercar
The 608 horsepower V-8 engine will launch you from 0 to 60 mph in 2.8 seconds. At a base price of $846,000 the Porsche 918 Spyder is considered to be a bargain in the supercar market, which means you’ll have money left over to buy gas.
4,000 dark chocolate truffles from Knipschildt
At a price of $250 per truffle ($2,600 a pound), Chocopologie by Knipschildt is the most expensive chocolate in the world. A million dollars will buy you 4,000 chocolates to satisfy your sweet tooth for a lifetime.
1500 sq. ft. condo in San Francisco
If you think you’ll be able to enjoy views of the Golden Gate Bridge from the swimming pool of your million dollar home in San Francisco, think again. A million dollars is just the median home price in America’s third most expensive city.
200 lbs. of Osetra caviar
The Osetra sturgeon is 7 foot long and can weigh 500 pounds. Its eggs take up to 10 years to produce and have a nutty flavor that pairs well with a brut champagne.
