You have nothing to lose but your shame. That's the idea behind the support group web site ThumbSuckingAdults.com which offers a safe haven for adults who still seek comfort from gnoshing the famous digit. The site has been up and thumbing since 1998, says its founder, who only goes by the name Harvey. And it has reportedly helped thousands of adults realize they're still thumb-body even if they suck. Thumbsucking is a compulsive habit, says Harvey, which helps people "zone out" and relax to deal with stress. http://www.thumbsuckingadults.com
Most Expensive Home Ever, Ever!
Developer Bruce Makowsky may have found a very interesting niche in the housing market. He says, "No one has built homes for billionaires." Well, not until now. Makowsky has built and listed a $250 million mansion in Bel Air that -- if it gets the asking price -- would be the most expensive home ever sold in the U.S. by tens of millions of dollars. Makowsky says the 38,000-square-foot home "reeks of quality" and is the next best thing to heaven. He estimates there are only 3,000 or so people in the world who can afford the home and reportedly Makowsky has already spoken to half a dozen of them. Here are just a few of the features:
Helipad complete with helicopter from Airwolf
280-degree views of Los Angeles
$30 million worth of fancy cars
Seven full-time staff members prepaid for two years
$200,000 wall of candy
James Bond-themed movie theater with 40 seats
Pool with swim-up bar and movie screen
130 art installations
Four-lane bowling alley
Spa and massage studio
A dozen motorcycles
Two wine cellars
And a 30-foot TV that is believed to be the biggest in any home
