Wow. (http://www.ussubs.com/v2/products/luxury/phoenix_1000/index.shtml)

I guess it's a good and bad idea... How exciting would it be to own your own Luxury Sub! By the same token how dangerous would sailing one be?

Still - pioneering a very viable industry - pretty cool.

If I had a gazillion dollars I could throw the submarine away if I didn't like it and buy something else. Or everything else.

i alread have two nuclear subs with 24 nuclear tipped missles each roaming the oceans.

Each missle has three 5 megaton nukes on it thast split off and bombard a area of my choosing.

Plus i have 10 sub hunters. Being a member of G'toopia would be a good thing.


MMMuuuaaaahahahahahahahaha!

I remember the one in the Clive Cussler book...dang, I can't remember the title. It had the nuke-powered sub that the hero used to destroy an island that was the secret base of some Japanese warriors.

If I had a hundred billion dollars, I might just stay in the undersea resort! That looks really cool! Each "room" has its own Jaccuzi! :D

If I had a gazillion dollars I would just buy the oceans and then sift through it one gallon at a time in the comfort of my living room.

Owning your own sub is like the next-best thing to space travel!

I'd like to get one and go down to check out the so-called archaeological remains they keep finding off Cuba and elsewhere; I 'm pretty sure they are all bunk, but it would be nice to know.

I want a flying sub like the ones in Tom Swift, Jr. or Voyage to See Who's on the Bottom.

I'd also like a pony for Chanukkah.

Well, I know that it's a game, but I've never played it. Does that make you feel better? :)

With a gazillion in the bank I'd be building space-ships before submarines, or maybe some sort of dual-purpose submarining spaceship............

I seem to remember an enclosed jet-ski type craft that looked like a dolphin.

I want to see supercavitating torps:
