In what could be the largest (known) bartab in history, an unknown gentleman spent 203,948.80 ($323,483 at the closing GBPUSD spot rate) at Liverpool nightclub PlayGround - a purchase which included a 125,000 bottle of the world's most expensive champagne, Nebuchadnezzar of Armand de Brignac Midas, as well as a whole lot of other drinks, including among them 42 instances of "Pussy" at a low price of 3.00 (the Dire Straits definitely had that part right). The man "was there with about ten friends on a private table but after the big bottle came in they were mobbed by gorgeous girls." As for the man's background: an FX trader believed to be "in his early twenties." Sure enough, this will hardly help bridging the already uncrossable chasm between the 99ers (of whom virtually all can live for this amount for at least one year) and the "balance." Naturally, every hedge fund will now scramble to find and hire said generous patron, who due to his age one can assume was not former SNB head, and comparable FX trading whiz-kid, Philipp Hildebrand.

Clubbers watched in shock as the man, believed to be a foreign exchange currency trader in his twenties, ordered it.

Nightclub boss George Panayiotou ordered the DJ to play the iconic opening music to the film 2001: A Space Odyssey Richard Strauss' Also Sprach Zarathustra as it was ferried to the trader's table.

One clubber said: "The club went wild when he popped this huge bottle of champagne, and they were handing out glasses of champagne to everyone in the VIP room.

"Frankly, there was no way all his group would have got through the bottle on their own anyway.

"This guy was phenomenally generous and was buying everyone in the place a drink.

"Funny thing was that he didn't seem to be drinking much himself and looked totally sober, but he was clearly having a great time.

"The party went off with a bang and everyone was toasting this guy's generosity.

"He was there with about ten friends on a private table but after the big bottle came in they were mobbed by gorgeous girls.

"There must have been about 60 of them at any time vying for his attention and he then ordered shots for every single woman in the club."

And that kids, is why going to college is overrated, and everyone should start frontrunning central banks at the earliest age possible.

Shit like this is dumb just because drinks/bottles are so overpriced in clubs just for the sake of being overpriced, its been that way forever but that doesn't change the stupidity. He paid $2000 for a $450 4.5L bottle of Goose. If it was $2000 on 4 bottles of 4.5L Goose that'd be more impressive since it would actually make sense. Otherwise it's all just one big circle jerk for these guys to stroke their wallet dicks.

Actually maybe I'm looking at it all wrong, i guess it's really just a means to pull pussy, and if i could either drop $4k on a high priced escort or drop $4k on a couple overpriced bottles at a club that also brings a good time and ends in scoring some club chicks then that is the better option. That's the only way i see justifying it though
