    Well, seeing as the whole marriage was something of a manufactured PR sham, I think it's poetic justice that one of the main symbols of that marriage is torn down, razed to the ground.

    How exactly was it a PR sham? Also, does it not say she bought that house and then bulldozed it?

    I think it's pretty extreme. Has the hallmarks of a breakdown.

    Hey, Tiger should have listed to the old time song in the 70s: "Its Cheaper To Keep Her." That should apply to every married person or every soon-to-be married aspirant: using some common sense, you have these options:

    1. Remain single, keep your money, but don't get any women pregnant.

    2. Marry with the expectation that if you get divorced; someone is receiving a nice payment (especially if there are accumulated assets).

    3. Date/marry (depending upon the state) -- gay men; no pregnancies, there.

    4. Become a monk; Catholic Priest.

    5. No sex, period: you'll make the Fleshlight business only richer.

    Elin has a four year old and a two year old with Tiger Woods. I gotta tell ya, it doesn't seem like a PR sham to me. She seemed genuinely angry when she attacked him.

    Woods did tell one of his mistresses that he only got married to Elin to boost his image, but isn't that the kind of lie cheating married men always use to assuage the guilt of the person he is seducing? We're separated, we don't have sex any more, we don't really love each other and we're only staying together for the kids?

    Buy a new house. Buy an empty lot and build....buy a lot with an old rundown house and tear it down. What a ridiculous waste of money, time, energy, resources....

    I dunno. If all the wealthy people built one extra house, that would lower the value of all the other homes and the market is already flooded with more homes than people can afford to buy, but if they all bulldozed their homes and built a replacement, that would simultaneously create a lot of jobs while keeping the value of homes higher than before. Regardless, she's wealthy enough that either decision doesn't make much of an impact on her own wealth.

    It's a waste of resources, but at least she isn't just hoarding all of it.

    Agreed. There is very little reason to bulldoze an entire house just to get exactly what you want. Nobody "needs" to have exactly what they want in a house except the insane. One of the few exceptions I can think of are if the house was structurally unsound or contained an aggressive kind of mold or infestation.

    She has great tits.

    Well, yeah. No one needs 100 million dollars either! :tongue:

    There's a certain level of wealth that is so far above what anyone "needs" that both keeping it all and spending it all seem equally absurd to me. It's just an absurd amount of money.

    I suppose she could have donated it to charity to sell. That would have been a better use of that money.

    I wonder if that value is just the house, or the house and the land?

    A great way to help our economy is outlaw heavy equipment, so when you want to level a perfectly good building, you have to pay an army of laborers a living wage to dismantle and recycle the building materials.

    Being in Palm Beach, the land is often more valuable than the structure. Depending on what she builds there, if the property is good enough -- she'll make back the value of the house she tore down. Especially if it was old/outdated.

    $12 million for a large piece of land in Palm Beach is not outrageous, if it's on the water, which it looks like here.

    Saw the article and didn't bat an eye. The homes along the Hillsboro Mile in my county, where my car dealer and his wife live, sell in the ~20 million dollar range. I'm not sure if the few empty seafront lots have yet moved from the 7 figure to the 8 figure range, but knocking down the house on a $12 million property didn't sound so out-of-the-ordinary for down here. If it's beachfront, possibly $10 million of that purchase price is in the land. The house didn't look that impressive, by local standards.

    I think she did it just to tell him his money isn't shit to her and that was her way of saying "let it burn."

    Heh, when I saw it, my first thought was, "Was she driving the bulldozer?"

    ^^^^This might be closer to the truth.

    If it was me I'd be tempted to douse it in petrol and sit out on the curb with a nice glass of scotch and watch the fucker burn.
