If it's more than $78,000 (60,000) you should DM him an offer, because he's currently auctioning off that exact opportunity in an effort to raise money for the family of his recently-deceased friend Mike.

Shkreli said his late friend was "The architect of my publicity stunts", adding the he would be "looking down at this and smiling."

The stunts he refers to include buying the only copy of The Wu-Tang Clan's album Once Upon A Time In Shaolin, which he later threatened to destroy, and offering Kanye West $15m to be the only person to own his recent album The Life Of Pablo.

Go on, make him an offer. Remember, Daraprim used to cost $13.50 per pill. Shkreli raised that price to $750 a pill. What's more, a round of treatment requires 100 pills. Let that sink in.
