    Meh as long as they eat/drink what they order I'm fine with it, once you've seen people order in a bottle of champagne or a "tradermark"(free translation on my part, 2 bottles of champagne and a bottle of vodka) and heard the person who just paid 2k for the champagne ask the waiter to "sink" it (as in pour it out in the sink) you start to despair for the sake of humanity.

    "Sinking" is probably the worst thing I've ever seen. It's just absolute madness, you buy an exclusive bottle just to... pour it out in the sink. It's hard to imagine until you've seen it happen.

    The nerve is called the "nerve of awareness". You cant dissect it. Its a current that runs up the center of your spine. I dont know if any of you have sat down, crossed your legs, smoked DMT, and watch what happens... but what happens to me is this big thing goes RRRRRRRRRAAAAAWWW! up my spine and flashes in my brain... well apparently thats whats going to happen if I do this stuff...

    It's not really 50k bottles of wine that raise my eyebrow, there's all sorts of 'exclusive' and very pricey things out there, and it almost comes w/ the territory. It's more the absurd prices for very common items that make me laugh about all this, but I'm sort of weird like that.

    ie, if I won the lotto, I'd have no problems dropping a stack of bills for a Ferrari, but there's no way I'm paying 10 bucks for a coke

    Like... what? Assumptions devoid of context are basically troll-bait.

    Most of the rich kids I know are extremely liberal. I don't know if their parents are conservative, but the kids themselves are definitely liberal.
    Because they're carefree kids. When they become adults they'll know how their parents got that money.

    Everyone's allowed to be jelous and shocked at how frivolous rich poeple can be. Troll baiting is them showing their receipts off. Trust me, they dont need you white knighting for them.

    Nah. I mean if you can afford it w/e. Everyone does not have the copacity to be Bill and Melinda, nor should they be expected to.

    At what point does waste change from bad to morally wrong?

    I'm so sick of people trying to use this against others. How do you know they don't help the less fortunate already? Many movie stars get flak, but then people don't realize that they help A LOT of the less fortunate or donate to charities of disease that has affected them etc. And people love to talk. It's not like they are helping either. Hey, anything helps right? Practice what you preach.

    Mathu - Probably a Methuselah - 8 standard size bottles
    Jero - Probably a Jeroboam - 4 or 6 standard size bottles.

    50k for 8 bottles is much more reasonable.

    /end sarcasm.

    And as pointed out 3 The at 4 euro each is almost certainly Tea. 10 euros for each coke or water seems a bit steep though...

    More people need to see sites like that.

    The level of outright disdain the super rich have for the rest of humanity is staggering.

    I honestly don't think most people believe that the super rich behave the way they actually do.

    If more folks saw that THESE are the folks the Republicans are referring to as "job creators", I think you'd see more folks seeing through the spin.

    Wasting your own resources isn't morally wrong.

    IDK, we'll have to ask the moral police about that one.

    Wells, what is your ruling?

    People in different worlds, different income levels, different countries, different religions, etc, etc have different morals. What is the standard set in your application?

    First, that receipt is in Moroccan Dirham. But, that's about 12,000 dollars. (107524 MAD = 12,011.48 USD)

    I would never spend that much on drinks even if I were rich (In fact I've never drank alcohol)

    We'll have to disagree there.

    No one said anything about force Dakia. There are all kinds of things everyone agrees is morally wrong that we don't want being forcibly stopped.

    Perhaps at the point where you're dropping huge amounts (by 1st world standards) on goods simply to destroy them?

    I wish I could just have any of those rich kids for just one day. I would take them to my job and completely work them into the ground. I don't really want to kill/hurt them physically. I just want to break them down, I want crush the inflated ego and spirit out of them via really hard labor. Then after they can rebuild themselves and be more thankful for what they have.

    Why would the receipt be in Moroccan Dirham?

    The club they bought the drinks from is in France.

    Military service/training would do them good, I think. Altough I'm sure not all of these kids are spoiled assholes.

    Rich clearly doesn't always indicate 'good with money'
    huh ? 10 bucks in their world is the equivalent to like, ionno, 0,001 cent ?
