For this week’s Saturday Mish Mash, we bring you three more stories from international headlines that we’re betting you missed. Don’t forget to contact us if you spot a quirky story.

Keeping up with the Jones’ just got a little harder

You know how it is: Once you settle down with your spouse and kids, a home, a few cars, a jet, a yacht and an island in Belize, what else do you need? Really, where do you put the elephants?

But if you had to, couldn’t you find room for a submarine?

Despite the sluggish global economy, there is no shortage of bidders for a new line of luxury submarines. According to Spiegel Online, a few American companies now specialize in making submersibles for the super rich.

The Phoenix 1000 – a submersible yacht – runs around $80 million. If your budget’s a little tight this month, there are smaller submarines, starting as low as a million dollars. The paper reports that one buyer is Virgin founder Richard Branson.

For the merely wealthy, the future holds hope. One designer is working on a model that will cost under $250,000.
