The tech world is full of wacky, weird and wonderful things. Every week, I bring you three such stories that catch my eye. Enjoy!

Wacky

Have you ever thought to yourself, "I love Facebook, but it just doesn't cost enough"? Neither has anyone else.

That hasn't stopped composer James Touchi-Peters from making the site Netropolitan. Imagine Facebook with no ads, better privacy and unlimited cloud storage, and you've pretty much got the idea.

Sounds fine, the only hiccup is the price. Yes, it does cost a bit to join. Take a quick guess at how much.

Nope, too low. To join Netropolitan you'll be shelling out a cool $9,000. Yes, $9,000!

That's more than 100 years of Kim's Club - I'm obviously not charging enough.

But that's not all. The $9,000 only covers the first year and after that there's an annual fee of $3,000 to stay a member.

I think there's a saying  about money and sense that applies here. You now the one I mean.
