    ‘instruction manual for the Saturn V rocket (which launched the Apollo 11 capsule to the moon), ‘- just give me this, the rest is just souverneers

    (Nerd-gasmic moan of delight…)

    Hopefully he donates all that stuff to a museaum at some point. Or at least starts one up, like Clive Cussler’s done for his exotic/classic car collection.

    Oh my god, I’m in Love. I’m in Lust!

    Can I hump the Library!?!

    I swear, it looks like paradise on earth!

    That is a dream. It is not real. If it were real, the universe would be teasing me.

    Collectibles aside, how much would it cost to replicate that place?

    Why am I thinking that this would be a great set for Adventurers’ Club style playlets . . . historical figures . . . time machine . . . . neyOOWWWWW!

    yay for the biltmore reference. that place is amazing. i lot of really great architecture came out of railroad money. and the national park railroad lodges … wow.

  8. Capissen says:

    Amazing. He should invite Neal Stephenson over sometime. There’s someone who could fully appreciate something like this.

  9. Clayton Hove says:

    This makes us all wee little nerdlings by comparison.

    Lets hopehe donates this to a museum. In my opinion it serves no purpose to own this much stuff. He would never have enough time to read everything here & he definitely will not be able to take it with him when he dies. … Wait a minute… perhaps he could cryogenically freeze himself. He sure looks like he has enough money for it.

    want … want … want … want x infinity

    I could live and die there, and then have my plastinated body put on display.

  13. pinguis says:

    Who must i kill to get one of these??

  14. PeaceLove says:

    Minor correction, Cory. The moon globe is signed by 9 of the 12 astronauts who have walked on the moon.

    Obviously, Mr. Walker couldn’t afford the other three.

  15. Michael A. Banks says:

    This and helping others is what wealth is for.

  16. Modusoperandi says:

    It’s not a real library if it doesn’t have a beanbag chair.

  17. starcadia says:

    Makes me a sad nerd. I mean, you can’t have so much fantastic sh!t without feeling like you’ve topped out. A Sputnik should be something you dream about having, not something you display. Unless it helps you talk to girls, I guess. :/

  18. Bonnie says:

    All that’s missing is Giles and the Scoobies!

  19. gyusan says:

    Hey, whoever dies with the most toys wins, right? Right?

  20. Stefan Jones says:

    The beanbag chair is in the annex. Third floor, west wing, by the hydroponic garden.

  21. crenelle says:

    4SJ with more money.

  22. scionofgrace says:

    It warms my little geek heart to know that such places exist. Awesome.

  23. General Specific says:

    That is extreme nerd porn. Bravo!

  24. Daemon says:

    What? No Tardis?

  25. demidan says:

    To quote Daffy Duck, “,,,Da rool, Da rool,,,”

  26. neonblue28 says:

    I drooled when I saw these pictures in the magazine. When it came to Sputnik and whatnot, I could care less, but dang, jewel-encrusted books? I just love the way it looks, traditional with dark woods yet modern with laser-etched glass. Sigh.

  27. gnosis says:

    Going here would be like living in a Borges story.

  28. FoetusNail says:

    Well, that is money well spent, but I still think I prefer the library at the Biltmore Estate with its huge fireplace.
