How the fuck...

...can you justify asking for $41m to develop an app in the first place?

Serious question.

Officially I've been a software engineer for the last 30 years, and an unofficial dabbler of programming for 10 years prior to that when I was a kid. I know how software is put together. I know what resources it will take to develop something. I understand the requirements for server hosting and management of those systems. What I don't understand is how can people pull clearly bullshit numbers like this out of their gargantuan arses and keep a straight face.
