"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." -- Theodore Roosevelt

$1.1 Billion Yacht Designed; Result is Collision of Gaudy and Disneyland Artificiality

"A lavish new yacht recreating the billionaire's playground of Monaco is set to become the world's most expensive.

"The staggering 155-metre Streets of Monaco yacht is expected to cost over $1.1 billion to build and is modelled on a section of Monte Carlo.

"Currently in the design stage, the super-ship will feature smaller versions of the state’s famous landmarks such as the Monte Carlo Casino and racetrack, as well as swimming pools, tennis courts, a cinema, a go kart track and a Hotel de Paris.

"Instead of traditional decks the one-of-a-kind ship will have buildings, and instead of a swimming platform it will have a beach."

As you can see by the picture, this thing is incredibly ugly. If the Disney "imagineers" designed an aircraft carrier, the results would be similar.

I guess this just proves that bad taste and poor aesthetics have an unlimited price range. Although a fair amount of contemporary art has already proven that...
