    superking is the biggest.My friends got one and its massive. I wouldnt get it in my room. She got a big bed because most of the time her two children sleep in the bed with them too.
    A queensize is bigger than a single, but smaller than a double I thought.

    Ive got a kingsize bed. plenty big enough, but still easy to buy bedding for. When was the last time you saw queensize or superking size bedding for sale?

    UK superking is 180cm x 198cm. 7' squared is 214cm x 214cm. unecessarily large. not many people buy bigger than superking, though.

    Just to confuse the matter, standard bed sizes are different in the UK, US and in Europe. A european queensize is the same size as a UK small double/three quarter (120cm x 190cm). The UK doesn’t generally use the term queensize, unless referring to US sized beds, but occasionally, custom beds between double and king are called queensize. An american queensize is the same width as a UK kingsize, but longer. Check me and my bed knowledge.
    When was the last time you saw queensize or superking size bedding for sale?

    yeah, exactly. you'd be better off pushing two doubles together and getting two seperate bedding sets. we had a bed like that on holiday, and it was fab.


    p.s. i'm gonna actually answer the question in a bit. ;)

    Food: I’d probably employ a chef, if I was filthy stinking rich, cause I can cook, but am usually too lazy, and end up living off junk, or ready meals. I’d buy meat and veggies direct from this farm in somerset we visited where they raise their animals the way people used to before the war – so there’s no dodge chemicals, or super-fattening genes, and they are SO tasty. My bread would be made fresh every day by my chef, bless his heart.

    Toiletries: Tigi bedhead stuff for my hair, the same make up I have now, only with a few blingy additions. Philosophy bath stuff, so it could look cool on my shelf. And custom blended perfume.

    Clothes: I don’t know if I’d dress any differently. I’d just have a lot more of the same kind of stuff. like converse low tops in every colour they come in. and i'd invest in a much blingier sewing machine, overlocker and knitting machine, and buy loads of fabrics that are £10+ a metre, so i usually ignore.

    Stereo Equipment (home): i'd let mr. kaff pick. they all sound the same to me :/

    Bed: custom made 7' diameter round bed. memory foam mattress. custom made round sheets and covers. ooh baby.

    Car 1: i'd probably just get something like i have now (fiesta) only it would have central locking and the radio would actually work. i might get a custom paint job though. black with pink flames or something equally tacky, and then do out the interior in black and pink.

    Car 2 (For raggin about): a pick-up truck. so we can chuck the bikes in the back. and i just think they're cool. probably a battered old white one, cause it seems the rules of the road don't apply to those.

    First house: self-designed mini-mansion in a pretty village in north yorkshire (but still close enough to leeds to shop). funky open-plan interior. triple garage. pool. stables. steam room. huge garden for mr. kaff to build mountain bike type jumpy trail things. security men. cleaners.

    Second House: modern flat somewhere busy and cool like new york, or LA, or sydney. for when the country is too boring. failing that, a little house with a pool somewhere hot.

    I swear, if I won the lottery tomorrow I wouldn't change a thing. I'd probably be one of these little old ladies that die in impoverished circumstances only for it to be discovered that there's millions in the bank.

    I think I have a bit of a phobia about spending money!

    Car 1(for getting around in): A fully restored '67 Ford Shelby GT 500. Gotta have some style and class now I'm rich and all ;)

    Car 2 (For raggin about): McLarren F1 Roadster, a Koenigsegg or a Ferrari Enzo

    First house: Modern flat in the city overlooking the river. Massive plasma TV, amazing stereo system, tonsa pointless decorative lights, mini-bar, walk-in-wardrobe, all that crap :razz:

    Second House: Somewhere abroad. Cuba, or one of the islands off the coast of Spain maybe. Gotta have a big ass yacht to get there as well :razz:

    What a bunch of weird things to think about if you were rich... but anyways, I'm bored so here goes...

    Food: not really a necisity so I'd spend my wad elsewhere

    Toiletries: Probably the same place I always buy it. It's fucking shampoo and shit for gods sake.

    Clothes: Whatever floated my boat at the time. I wouldn't shop anywhere different but I'd be more inclined to buy more.

    Stereo Equipment (home): Means shit to me but my dude could probably give you a novel about whats the best.

    Bed: I can't even tell you the last time I"ve slept on a bed, so again, another thing not to worry about.

    Car 1One that works. Nothing flashy. Maybe a lexus.

    Car 2 I'm only one person, wouldn't need another car

    First house: A 2 bedroom appt for me and my friend very near to lake shore and michigan ave. Ya know, same building as Opera or Sammy.

    Second House: Again, I wouldn't need one.
