Some people have no taste and too much money, not my problem.

I don't know that the restaurant-quality kitchen is ridiculous, but that's my own taste. :^) Most of 'em certainly are. Some people would call me 'communist' for saying this, but not only would I never want any of that, I actually have an aversion to 'luxury' ... probably because much of what are considered luxury items are as ridiculous as most of this slide show.
