Floating Castle for the Super-Rich (and, maybe, fucking Christian Wulff)

Jetzt weiß ich, warum diese Politik-Cretins grade jetzt, wo überall gespart werden soll, nur nicht bei Businesskaspern, Fuckingriches und Politikern, nochmal ihre Diäten erhöhen (Scherz beiseite: Das ist nicht mehr nur eine Frechheit, sondern ein handfester Skandal, wenn man mich fragt): Die befürchten den Volksaufstand, nachdem sie und ihre Freunde aus der Finanzwelt die Wirtschaft ruiniert haben, und wollen sich jetzt auf dem neuen Luxusliner „Utopia“ eine Wohnung kaufen.

Utopia ist das erste Mega-Luxusschiff mit ständigen Residenzen für die Elite der Welt. Kein Scheiß, gibt's wirklich, wird grade in Südkorea gebaut. Die billigste Wohnung kostet 4 Millionen Dollar, die teuerste 160 Millionen. I, for one, give a burning Finger to our new Superelite Wannabe-Overlords.

The super-wealthy are already building their first floating castle, a billion-dollar-plus luxury liner that offers permanent multimillion-dollar housing with the best protection of all: moats made of oceans, keeping the land-based Americans they've plundered at a safe distance.

The first such floating castle has been christened the "Utopia"--the South Korean firm Samsung has been contracted to build the $1.1 billion ship, due to be launched in 2013. Already orders are coming in to buy one of the Utopia's 200 or so mansions for sale--which range in price from about $4 million for the smallest condos to over $26 million for 6,600 square-foot "estates." The largest mansion is a whopping 40,000 square feet, and sells for $160 million.

It's the first of its kind to offer permanent housing units to buyers, and there'll be plenty on board the Utopia for the global elite inhabitants to keep themselves entertained: an outdoor movie theater, casino, miniature golf course, nightclubs, restaurants, shops, and a water park for the elites' heirs (featuring a "Lazy River," rock-climbing wall and water slides). At nearly 1,000 feet, the Utopia is almost as long as a nuclear-powered Nimitz-class aircraft carrier.
