If you thought it was ridiculous to pay more than a buck or two for bottled water, consider this: Americans spend billions and billions on bottled water every year. Designer Fernando Altamirano has created a bottle of water he's hoping to sell for $60,000. That's certainly going to push our overall spending through the roof.
The glass bottle is covered in 24-karat gold and is filled with water gathered from springs around the world. Proceeds of the sale go to raise awareness of global warming. At least this is probably the one water bottle in the world that we don't have to worry about ending up in a landfill.
