The Therapy Sessions

I've never been the envious type, but every now and then it's fun to gawk at the filthy rich. There's no better way to do this than to look at a virtual map of Bill Gates' House
It's full of all kinds of "oh-what-the-hell" extravagances - like this:
The 17-by-60-foot swimming pool has an underwater music system and a floor painted in a fossil motif. Swimmers can dive under a glass wall and emerge outdoors by a terrace. Locker room off the pool has four showers and two baths.
I was somewhat reminded of Steve Martin's filthy rich character in "The Jerk:"
"Mom, remember when I used to dream of having a huge, plushly carpeted game room with my own private disco off to the side, 50 hired disco dancers, 25 video games, a full service bar, and seven red pool tables with a giant stuffed camels hanging from the ceiling?"
