What You Can Buy Instead of That $250 Million Home in LA

Just listed this week, the humble home owned by real estate developer Bruce Makowsky is the complete package. 38,000 square feet, a fleet of classic cars and motorcycles, a helicopter, and even a candy room -- this simple cottage by the sea can be yours for just $250,000,000.

But what if you just aren't feeling home-ownership right now? After all, is it even a good investment?

Here are some other things you can buy with $250 million:

Protection of our President and his family in NYC for about 8 months.

125 blimps.

More white tiger cubs than you could ever imagine.

20 really nice baby shower gifts.

25 minutes of airtime during the Super Bowl.

A full year of overtime pay for every worker in Pennsylvania.

One Netflix series.
