I don't know what the point is of living in a mall-sized building, echoing empty spooky, and there you are, taking up maybe 2-3 rooms where u usually spend your time, and every other year you venture into empty rooms of luxurious decor that nobody inhibits EVER. Think of all the homeless people... And you've got all that waste of space to yourself. Real classy, real classy indeed.

$39 million for that? It looks like a hotel, devoid of any character.
