Honestly though, as far as ways to go broke are concerned, being one of the few people to to see the earth from orbit is a worthwhile way to bankrupt yourself. I think I might have done the same...

Yeah, if you offered me either a huge house or a week on the space station I'd choose space.

You fool! The house was IN space.

edit: What if the house was that $600 million 6,000-square-foot submarine home? I think I'd take that over low orbit because now I'm a supervillain.

Not me, I'm semi-claustrophobic.

Also, I hate the sea and everything in it!

He put Brittannia Manor II on the market because he is building Brittannia Manor III nearby. With even more hidden doors, revolving walls, crawlable vents, pools with connecting passageways throughout the house. Plus he still retains his mini Globe theater and small lakeside village. No shit.

For the hell of it, a neat interview with Garriot where he shows you some features of the existing Brittannia Manor, talks about the new one being built, and talks about his trip to space.

I'm glad that people like Garriot exist. I've seen enough bland, magnolia show homes on Cribs to know that wealth is generally wasted on the wealthy.
