A Gold Shirt?

In a story from the BBC an Indian man Datta Phuge spent a staggering  $250,000 on a shirt made entirely of gold. Yes a gold shirt!!!
 A perfect example of what happens when you just have so much money you just do not know what to do with it. forget helping the less fortunate, no one asked them to intentionally live in squalor conditions. 

"Some people ask me why I'm wearing so much gold but it was my dream. People have different aspirations. Some elite people want to own an Audi or Mercedes, and have big cars. I chose gold," he explains.

smh. whilst i am not one to tell people how to spend money they worked for, this is just ridiculous. $250 000 may have been able to uplift the lives of dozens of people from a mere kilometre from where he lives.
