Tech Billionare Buys $201 Million Dollar Life Insurance Policy

Stack Of Cash

Before today, the world record insurance policy was purchased by an unnamed American entertainer for $100 million dollars. World records, no matter how absurd, were meant to be broken.

A $201 million policy, purchased today by a mystery tech billionaire, beats the previous record by $100 million. Maybe beats isn’t a strong enough word.

The policy was sold by a Santa Barbara, California based company named SG. SG is a global advisory firm specializing in complex financial solutions for wealthy clients. SG isn’t naming names because they wouldn’t be in the business they are if they did name names.

The guessing begins now.

Brunch with the Easter Bunny for $85 a head in Boca Raton

Outdoor Pool

Spring Break means mini-vacations for the rich kids. Growing up, you weren’t a rich kid.

Things change.

This Easter, bag the Disney doldrums and jet to the Boca Raton Resort & Club, a Waldorf Astoria Resort, and drop a couple colored eggs on a rest and recharge under the same natural sun lamp that keeps nanna looking so fresh.

“Festivities kick off on Saturday, April 19 at the Mad Hatter’s Silly Spring Party with bounce houses, carnival games, “Bunny Hop” sack races, face painters, balloon artists and live music. On Sunday, a sunrise service will be held on the resort’s private beach followed by an egg hunt featuring over 10,000 colorful eggs filled with toys and candy scattered about the resort’s golf course, a hunt for more eggs than the White House lawn. An Easter Bunny Brunch Buffet from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. will feature carving stations, holiday favorites and delicious desserts. As a special highlight, the Easter Bunny will also make appearances throughout the weekend’s events.”

After the kids make you find every single last egg of the 10,000, spend some alone time exploring the half-mile stretch of private beach. Established in 1926, the landmark location features five unique styles of guest rooms and suites, many with water views of the Atlantic and Intracoastal Waterway.

The joint boasts two 18-hole championship golf courses, tennis as good as the pros play, a full-service 32-slip marina, seven swimming pools, three state-of-the-art fitness centers; a surf school and a basically any sport on water you can imagine.

The damage to your Easter bread? About $364 per night and $85 per head for the buffet. Kids eat slightly cheaper.

Cate Blanchett Oscars Earrings

Who wore the most expensive Oscars outfit worth an estimated $18 million?

expensive Oscars outfit

Cate Blanchett won the Best Actress Oscar at the 2014 Academy Awards. She probably felt like a million dollars. She looked even pricier.

Blanchett’s total Oscars outfit was an estimated $18.1 million dollars, according to Vogue magazine. Her embellished nude dress from the Armani Prive Fall 2013 Collection carries a price tag estimated at $100,000. The jewels – all of which was on loan – pushed Blanchett’s outfit cost over-the-top.

Her Chopard-designed earrings had 62 opals set in white gold and wore a brown diamond bracelet and a pear-shaped diamond ring, both also from Chopard, pushed the total damage over $18 million.

Second runner-up was Charlize Theron who sadly only sported a $15 million dollar get-up.

Strong currents were possibly the cause for the watery crash. The river tide came in quickly and the water levels rose to at least seven feet.

A witness to the crash told The Mirror, “We saw the boat coming and thought ‘there’s no way he’s getting through in that’.”
