I noticed several of these "thousand dollar" experiences are in Las Vegas.  Another way to blow a thousand-dollarsm if you are in Vegas, is to contact a high-class escort service and keep company with a woman for an hour,

I thought the most insane way to waste 1000 bucks was to donate to a democrat re election.  after they get elected they always raise taxes  so we all end up paying for the stupid decission.

$1000 to jump a rope?
Maybe $1000 to jump a good looking professional girl.  And that only a maybe.
But rope?  Nah.

Rats!  For a minute there, I thought for $1000 I could buy my own jetpack.  That would be worth it.

Bugatti WAS made in Molsheim, France....not Germany. They have finished production of the originally planned 300 cars and maybe a little more than that...Parent company is German... Volkswagon!!....test track in Germany also so author is a little confused...

     These days a thousand could go alot farther and in sooo many more different directions.  All these things just look like super quick ways to pick your pocket.  I would save my money and really consider more meanigfull ways to enjoy it.:)

I think driving the bulldozer or flying the fighter jet would interest me the most.

There were only two that I would definitely want to try (the fighter pilot and gladiator school). the others, not so much.  There is no way I'm giving you money to put me in a tank in shark infested waters...NO WAY.

I would not pay good money to RIDE in a Veyron. If I could drive it, maybe. The jet fighter does not look like any real jet fighter I have seen, and I used to work on the F-4 and the F-16. So, no to that, too. I would like to drive a bulldozer though. And, last but not least, why would you pay money to jump rope. I can do that at home and it doesn't cost a dime.

Shop wisely, you and a friend can take a cruise.  For those of us who have never done that, it would be a blast.  Just saw one out of New Orleans for $598 for 2 for 5 days....Splurge and get the balcony suite for about a grand.

the list doesn't mention blowing one grand on an escort, so I guess that would be a good use.

Love how you can fly a jet for 3 hours almost cheaper than you can ride in the Bugatti for only 2 miles.. and you don't even get to drive it!

How about giving the money to needy family or your church, I am sure they will blow it on a needy project in the communities or help poor families make it for another month. That is a good lasting feeling you will have for long time. Try it.
