    If I bought a $1200 bottle of beer I would feel bad about ever opening it.

    I've got a couple of 150 dollar bottles of wine in the basement aging for certain occasions (one is going to be for the mortgage burning party in about 15 years, for instance). Can't imagine buying something roughly 10 times as expensive just for alcohol.

    Re: What the Fark 4: It's not unusual to be strange anymore

    When I was very serious about wine I carried several bottles that were upwards of $200 and I'll be honest of the ones I actually opened (vs. gave away or sold) not a single one of them was worth it. I've even been in situations where I was able to sample $1,000+ bottles and even then I never tasted anything earth-shattering. And I'm talking world-class, one of a kind, extremely rare offerings. All of them kept in climate controlled conditions so we're not talking about a "bad bottle". Unless you have money growing out of your *** I have zero respect for anyone spending a thousand on a bottle or anything and in fact would call you a complete moron to your face with all due respect. Yes without question there are expensive bottles worth the price, but there's a significant law of diminishing returns on that s**t and it starts in the hundreds of dollars.

    This.
    The most expensive bottle of anything I ever bought was a $200 bottle of Balvenie 21YO scotch, and it was when I flew in to CO Springs to surprise one of my uber-closest friends on NYE. I figured, go big or go home. Was it worth $200? Yeah, especially given the occasion. One time deal.

    That being said, I won't overpay for this stuff. Just not worth it. And I've learned that some of this stuff comes up in some of the bottleshares I join, anyway.

    I guess some people are just immune to irony!

    Progressive firebrand Sen. Elizabeth Warren said Thursday that she was “troubled” that ex-President Obama will pocket $400,000 for a speech to a top Manhattan investment firm.

    “I was troubled by that,” Warren said on SiriusXM’s “Alter Family Politics” while plugging her new book. [emphasis added]


    While she's out using her political connections to make money, she is criticizing someone else out using political connections to make money????

    So? Fauxachontas went on a left-wing satellite radio program to plug the book to her base. She didn't ask Wall Street to buy $400,000 of her books, after spending years declaring herself all hopey changey and definitely not in bed with the banks.

    I don't care if they get paid for speeches after they retire or aren't currently in political office.

    Should they be writing and/or selling books while holding a federal office? It seems like a very easy way to get some very dishonest income. The book could be great, or it could be horrible, but that author/politician could easily have a guaranteed 500,000 copies sold that end up in a trash dump or recycling center.

    I don't think this qualifies as headline news, so here is where I shall place it.

    Yale Grad Students Go On Hunger Strike With Meal Breaks due to grad assistant union benefits (I didn't know grad students had a union).

    I hate everything about that.

    Isn't being a grad student a controlled hunger strike by definition?
