In case you’ve ever wondered what a narwhal sounds like, researchers in Greenland now have the answer. https://nyti.ms/2JHMa0K

    As melting ice opens east Greenland to petroleum prospectors and cruises, scientists are rushing to study the noises made by a remote population of toothed whales. You'd think that narwhals couldn't be more enchanting. These elusive, ice-dodging, deep-diving whales have 10-foot snaggletoothed tusks, and they see with sound.

As absurd as it may seem, it's not the only high-end residential listing out there. But what glamorous features might one get, given these astronomical prices?
