18th Century 140,000 sq. ft. chateau “accidentally” razed by Polish construction team. Its Russian owner is “shocked, shocked!” that his workmen could make such a mistake. While this has the earmarks of a fine Polish joke, it’s more likely a story about the invasion of the visigoths.
But the Ruskie lacks the brazenness displayed by Ross Perot who back in the 90s was told by Bermudian authorities that he wasn’t allowed to blast apart a coral reef to accommodate the 150′ yacht he wanted to moor alongside his mansion. Perot blew it up anyway and said, “send me a bill”. Cost him $1 million.
