Maybe not $1.345 million as it takes real skill to attract that may bidders but a cool $900,000 definitely.

Whomever bought this (and whoever bid on this with the intention of actually buying it) is beyond stupid. Then again, to buy this thing at this price you'd probably be a billionaire that has nothing to do with their money, so wasting $1.3 million on absolutely nonsensical garbage is a novelty for them. If not a billionaire, you have to wonder how such a moron made millions in order to be able to afford this thing in the first place.
