Jeff Bezos, being a billionaire and all, can do whatever he wants and people say, “Oh, OK.”

Bloomberg News has a story up about the new headquarters Bezos’ company. Amazon is building in Seattle.

Here’s the tidbit:

Out front there are going to be three 100-foot-tall biodomes filled with more than 300 plant species from around the world.

I’m just gonna quote Bloomberg here:

“Amazonians will be able to break from their daily labors to walk amid the greenery along suspension bridges.”
