First of all it's just a fluke that this guy is at the top. He obviously didn't lose his job in the recession nor did some other problem create havoc for his financial situation. Good for him. However there are people that don't have a mortgage, pay cash and have good retirement savings that have a much lower score. Credit scores are arbitrary otherwise your score would be exactly the same at all three reporting agencies. Anybody with a credit score above 700 shouldn't lose any sleep over it. Anything over 750 is very good.

I think it's awesome when people re-purpose old worn books. They live forever that way, even if the paper is worn and they are tattered. I've seen artwork made of books and I find it very calming and wonderful. Like a living library. I'd sit on this bench and read :)

On the contrary, the purpose of the "first world problems" internet gag is to convey exactly this message; first world problems are not problems. Regardless, this video makes a striking contrast.

And the linked story ends as she gives credit to... God? Then her blog page's main title is "Miracles...Believe in Them!" Sorry, no, you should be believing in and thanking hundreds of years of medical science, culminating in advanced surgical techniques which have prevented your death. A century ago (in fact much less than that) no 'miracle' would have saved you. For that matter, had you been born in a poor country today (same God, right?) with less capable medical facilities, no 'miracle' would have saved you. I'm all for people being grateful when they survive, but I wished they would direct their thanks to those who did the hard work. Rant over, glad she's alive, etc :o)

However, guys, that does not mean that if you quit helping out, your marriage will improve.

You're wrong! The science is settled. Men, sit back and relax for the sake of your marriages.

Shannon, your statement reminds me of this Michael Crichton quote:

Briefly stated, the Gell-Mann Amnesia effect is as follows. You open the newspaper to an article on some subject you know well. In Murray's case, physics. In mine, show business. You read the article and see the journalist has absolutely no understanding of either the facts or the issues. Often, the article is so wrong it actually presents the story backward—reversing cause and effect. I call these the "wet streets cause rain" stories. Paper's full of them.

In any case, you read with exasperation or amusement the multiple errors in a story, and then turn the page to national or international affairs, and read as if the rest of the newspaper was somehow more accurate about Palestine than the baloney you just read. You turn the page, and forget what you know.

Out of 15 items:
8 of them use gold leaf to seem more expensive
3 use truffle oil/butter ( which is often fake and used mostly as a buzzword to inflate the price
At least 1 of them (the shark fin soup) is illegal to make in most civilized countries

The only one of those that a sane, rational person would even consider eating is the The California Capitol City Dawg, which actually sounds like it was crafted for flavor rather than to bilk new money suckers into conspicuous consumption. It's essentially the culinary equivalent of 3-Card Monte, and if you're stupid enough to put your money down you deserve to have it taken from you.
