With a Net Worth of $840 million, Tony Hsieh could have a Caribbean island or a palatial estate overlooking an ocean vista all to himself.  Instead, the Zappos.com chief executive has set down roots in a less exclusive locale: a dusty Las Vegas trailer park.  “I see my neighbors a lot more now than I did when living in a house in the suburbs or living in an apartment building.”
To be fair, he Owns the 1-acre park, which is home to around 30 silver Airstreams that Hsieh rents out to visiting computer coders.  “For me, experiences are more meaningful than stuff,” he says.
“I have way more experiences here at Airstream.”

Cincinnati Reds pitcher Michael Lorenzen got a 116 tattoo over MLB All-Star break. When he recently took the mound, Fox Sports reporter Jim Day explained Lorenzen’s new ink during the game broadcast.
“A group really influenced him. They’re called the 116 Clique … Their logo is ‘116,’” Day said, “and it’s based on the Biblical verse Romans 1:16, where it basically says, ‘Being unashamed of the gospel of Christ.'”
