Excesses of the rich and pampered

In a post yesterday, I suggested that the biggest problem facing hyper rich investment bankers is "What in the hell do I do with all this money?" Well, a hyper rich guy (don't know if he's a banker) in Connecticut has an answer to that question: build a 50,000 square foot home. Because, who couldn't use that much space? It's really just the bare essentials, anyway:

It's the two-level, 33,500-square-foot basement complex, complete with a 103-seat movie theater, ticket booth, concession stand, game room and music annex, that will make it New England's largest occupied single-family home.

At nearly 50,900 square feet, the [Arnold] Chase home will be slightly larger than billionaire Bill Gates' home in Washington, about 4,000 square feet smaller than the White House and 20 times larger than the average-size home in America.
