For most of us, the 99 percenters, the lives of the rich are a complete and utter mystery. After all, these enviably wealthy individuals are worlds away from the lives we lead. They own multiple homes. They have garages full of fancy cars. Basically, they own the best of everything. While it’s already mind-boggling to imagine the scale of such wealth, the insanely super-rich take status symbols to a whole other level.

If you ever wondered what kind of ridiculous items they waste their fortunes on, then the 'Stupid Stuff Rich People Buy' Twitter account is the place to be. This relatively new social media project scours the web for the wildest, weirdest, and just plain dumb things (lots of) money can buy.

Below, we've wrapped up a collection of some of the most ludicrous items shared by the page. So sit back, buckle up, and get ready for a wild ride where guinea pig armors, diamond-encrusted toenail clippers, and $3,200,000 collars that make dogs look more glamorous than the rest of the population are only the start of the entertainment that follows. Keep reading to also find our interview with the creator of the account, Dane. Then be sure to upvote your favorite pictures, and let us know what you think about them in the comments!

Psst! When you're done with this list, check out Bored Panda’s previous post about crazy things rich people spend their money on.

We reached out to the creator of 'Stupid Stuff Rich People Buy', Dane, to hear a bit more about the journey of the page and what it has been like seeing it grow. "My inspiration for the account came from seeing some of the crazy luxury items that are out there and really thinking about those costs," he told Bored Panda.

"$216 for a brick that has the Supreme logo? A million dollars for a toenail clipper with a bunch of diamonds on it?" Dane asked. "It's insane for me to even conceptualize these things. I realized other people may also enjoy/hate seeing the insane things that the ultra-wealthy spend their money on."

Most stuff on this list is tasteless and stupid. But not that harmful (aside from diamonds), but this absolutely is harmful. Horrible and egotistical

Although the social media project started only in July 2022, it has been steadily growing ever since. At the time of writing, the 'Stupid Stuff Rich People Buy' has amassed over 10k followers eagerly waiting for new and completely absurd artifacts to grace their feeds.

"My community is sort of all over the place," Dane added. "A running joke among my followers is commenting 'chump change for a guy like me' under my posts. One of my friends started it, but it has since picked up, and a lot of the people who follow me say it now. It's especially funny when it's posted under some of the massively expensive items."

When asked whether Dane faces any difficulties with managing the account, he explained that the biggest challenge is when he happens to be wrong. "I'm not perfect, and sometimes if I don't know the intricacies of a certain community, I price things wrong."

"Recently I posted an in-game cosmetic for the game Counter-Strike and got called out by a massive Counter-Strike creator when I posted the wrong price for something."

"I had a lot of Counter-Strike fans in my mentions that were mad at me," he continued, "I made amends with them and posted a couple (accurately priced) items from the game, including a digital knife skin that's worth over 1.5 million USD."

We were also curious to know what makes Dane decide whether an image is worth sharing or not. "There are two big factors that go into deciding what to post — cost and utility. I've posted things that are relatively cheap in the grand scheme of things, $50 or so, but those things are often utterly useless or typically worth a dollar or less," the creator told us. "For example, a $55 single coffee pod or an $85 rock partially wrapped in leather."

"Otherwise, I just tend to post things that the average person would never even dream of buying like a $12,000 bathtub for small dogs. At the end of the day, I just ask myself the question: would a reasonable person making a normal amount of money even consider buying this?" Well, all it takes is a brief scroll through the feed to prove that most of us definitely wouldn't.

Of course, there's nothing wrong with being rich per se, as accumulating wealth is something many people strive for. But these objects designed for the crazy super-rich almost beg to be judged by the broader society.

Why do they drop major coins on these puzzling objects when there are heaps of cheaper alternatives that serve the same function? This question is bound to pop into your mind when you find it difficult to imagine their seemingly limitless wealth. Because for the ultra-rich, money is power, and wasting them on weird items is their idea of taking status symbols to a whole different level. A stupid one, but another level nevertheless.

Just imagine how much help you could provide giving that amount of money to some local shelters instead - I know, people can do with their own money whatever they like, however, I still hope that common sense isn't going completely extinct any time soon...

It’s safe to say that when it comes to the draw of the page in question, the ridiculousness of it all is definitely part of the appeal. And clearly, devoted fans love witnessing and poking fun at how rich people flaunt their wealth through wasteful spending. No matter how non-materialistic we may be, it’s entertaining to witness these eyesores featured on the account.

Dane believes people enjoy seeing his content for a few different reasons. "One of them is to see how 'the other half' lives. So much of the stuff I've posted I've never even thought of before. Why would someone even think to make a designer brand paper clip? Why would you make a yacht out of platinum?"

"Other stuff is just plain stupid. Today I posted a ripped-up hoodie that has the Balenciaga logo on it, so it sells for over $1,000! That's dumb! That is objectively a waste of money, and I can't see it any other way. I think we all like to get together and laugh at the people that would consider buying things like that."

Another driver, according to Dane, is that people love to hate what he posts. "Every day I see people that don't have enough money for their basic needs, yet these people are paying more than a year's worth of my salary on a Gucci Bicycle. It's infuriating in a way that makes me want to see more."

This isn’t the first page Dane has grown on Twitter. He’s also the creator of 'Make Up A Guy', but it has been really rewarding and encouraging for him to see that he's able to grow a different kind of account as well. "My advice is that if you want to be successful in social media, just give it a try! Develop a cohesive identity, and don't be afraid to ask people to share your content. If you spend too much time on Twitter like me, you may as well make something useful out of it."

We'd love to hear your opinions about the account and how rich people carelessly flaunt their money down below. Which item was the most mind-boggling one? Would you ever consider buying something like that yourself? Feel free to share your thoughts with us in the comments!

This is probably the stupidest of all the quirks. Not only is it absurdly expensive, it is also damn unnecessary. That and a swimsuit that you can't swim in.

So let me get this straight. It costs $68,500, it’s made of CRYSTAL so basically leaded GLASS, its trim is made from gold which is a SOFT metal—-and you’re going to whack the f**k out of it with a cricket bat? It’s going to take a shitload of these to finish one game, and woe be it for the cricketers if they fall down on all that broken glass. (/s, ffs, I know it’s just for display.)

Those who buy $3.2M pianos for no other reason than they're rich and looking to impress others will earn my respect once they play Godowsky's Passacaglia on it. (For those who look up Passacaglia, listen to Sirrala's interpretation of it. 7:39 and 11:45 are the best parts in my opinion).

If I were kind of quite rich and into art, that's something within the bounds of potential consideration, unlike most of the overpriced bling in this list.

You can have mine for half that price. Remember, you only own the Non Fungible Token (NFT), a number of bytes on a server, not the art or its copyright. Here's mine: NFTs-632c0...ae65d6.jpg NFTs-632c09dae65d6.jpg
