Billionaire constructs Western town just because

310_to_yuma.jpg

We're all a little guilty of splashing out every now and then. Just last night, we bought a box of After Eights just because it was a Monday.

But just imagine the sheer crazy levels of over-spending you'd suffer from if you were an actual billionaire.

The notorious Koch brothers, who have spent their millions to support ultra-conservative groups in the US, have let their little brother William off the leash and he's decided to construct a fake Wild West town just for the fun of it.

The legitimately nicknamed "Wild Bill" Koch has almost finished construction, or rather he's almost finished barking orders at the little people doing his work. It contains a saloon, a church, a firehouse, a train station and a jail.

But just to ensure that no-one other than himself enjoys the 50-building development, it shall be gated and manned by guards. Oh and he'll probably shoot any invaders with Jesse James's actual gun, which he owns.

Makes those After Eights seem a bit ordinary now huh?
