Sure, you can have nice things, but this is all a bit unnecessary.

2. This birthday celebration.

6. A sundae that costs $1000 and includes gold leaf and caviar, yet apparently sells at the rate of one a month.

7. Or this burger that sells for £1,100.

Sidenote: it's made of Kobe beef. Kobe beef is highly prized because of the rich veins of fat marbled throughout the meat, giving it an intense but subtle flavour. As soon as it's ground into a burger, that benefit disappears, making the whole thing worse than what you started with. Also, it's covered in fucking gold.

8. You can buy ice for $325 a bag. Because it is purified. And shaped.

10. A gold-plated car is a practical and reasonable thing to own.

21. BUT THAT'S NOT ALL. That bike has competition, from this bike. So if you would like a gold bike, the market has seen fit to bless you with multiple options.

Pros: This is almost $100,000 cheaper.

Cons: Doesn't seem to be as robust, certainly more suited to roads. If you would like to take your golden bike onto the mountain trails, you'll have to go with the pricier version, unfortunately.

23. Capitalism is terrible, because this phone case is on sale for £63,000.
