Dueling ultra-rich kids are the fun to watch because they are always trying to outshine the other. One will buy a BRAND NEW tech toy only to be outdone by the other who buys a NEWER model. Next thing you know it's a new trend. One of the MODERN ones that's remote controlled. Not to be outdone the other rich kiddo would get whatever the LATEST novelty in gadget was. Maybe a NEW-FANGLED drone that spies on the outcompeted kid. That of course would be outdone by a FUTURISTIC system of satellite bots, which would then be replaced by good OLD-FASHIONED binoculars after these morons ruin their friendship trying to one up one another. Still amusing to watch!
