How do you celebrate one of the worst days for the US stock market in years? Simple — you go out and buy a yacht with 26,000 square feet of sales. Oil money at work you think? Nope. Credit goes to VC, businessman and early HP employee Tom Perkins a founder of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers.

Worried about your job? No need. With this many square feet of sails and a yacht of this size, Perkins alone could be responsible for thousands of new US jobs.

    Well I didn’t know that but thanks for sharing. You know you are rich when your boat has its own Wikipedia entry. Amazing. $150-$300 million?!?
    Do you have the address we can send our resumes to by chance? 😉
