‘What else could I buy instead of a RealDoll’? I’m afraid I don’t understand the question.

If you were intending to buy a RealDoll for US$7000.00, you could instead buy:
  • four seconds of the US war on Iraq
  • nine thousand, three hundred and thirty-three packets of itching powder
  • six cheap flights from the northern hemisphere to Australia
  • forty-nine second-hand 28″ CRT televisions
  • seventy felt bowler hats
  • eight hundred and sixty-three litres of Red Bull energy drink
  • one twentieth of a terraced house on an English council estate
  • eighteen kilolitres of unleaded gasoline (in America)
  • one hundred and thirty-one thousand, five hundred and twenty-eight 5mm light-emitting diodes
  • three thousand, nine hundred and thirty-two lottery tickets, probably worthless
What are you thinking of buying?
I might buy for

Here’s something to consider: what would I do with 863 litres of Red Bull? I know! Kill myself.
How many of these will $7000 USD purchase, I wonder?

More than likely just one, but you really can’t put a price on a structure(s) that exterminate all rational thought

    130,000 or so diodes…Hmmm…I’m thinkin’, I’m thinkin’…

    You could, ah, line the study ceiling with them, making for a rather bizarre display. Or make it more bizarre: line the kitchen ceiling with ’em.
    Err, sky’s the limit?

    Or place them at the top and bottom of every wall in the house. That would turn my house into the perfect shadow free photo studio!

    Okay, now that’s clever. 🙂 You might want to put $100 aside to hire an assistant though, cos instaling that many diodes round your home might well drive you mad. It could happen!

    It looks like I’d have trouble getting the lawnmower in and out of that shed.
    Entertaining trouble, but trouble nonetheless.
