Richard Branson Boasts World's Quirkiest List of Projects

What is lion-maned billionaire gadabout Richard Branson (pictured) up to this week? No, not his plans to dive to the bottom of the deepest sea. That was two whole weeks ago. This week, he's announced plans to populate his wholly-owned Caribbean island with lemurs. He's also auctioning off the right to shave his legs. And looking for spaceship pilots.

That's great and all, Richard, but why aren't you building the world's largest sand castle, filling that sand castle with endangered great apes, and then landing on top of that ape sand castle after performing the world's highest sky dive, all to benefit charity? Weirdo.
