    That's the perspective,,, iv had bigger reactions with the mail lady when a new front tire and front sprocket show up for my Mt. bike that i had to work hard to pay for then from people iv seen that were "surprised" with a brand new Mercede's in the driveway that was just given to them lol

    I feel very fortunate,,, if you don't enjoy what you already have how could you be happy with more? (old Chinese proverb)

    I think he could have negotiated a better price.

    I just hope that if he kills himself in it, he doesn't kill anybody else.

    the Audi dealership in State College, Pennsylvania exists almost entirely because of rich Chinese students buying Audi S5s. There were more of those tooling around campus than any other car. Oh, and I can't forget the Lamborghini Gallardo that another Chinese student used to drive up and down the main drag. He'd park it anywhere he wanted and simply pay the tow fees to get it back when he needed it. The crazy thing is that these are not the kids of the richest people in China, those ones go to Harvard or Yale. It's the "poor" rich Chinese that send their kids to state schools like Penn State. Very Animal Farm.

    What do you guys think "cost" is on one of those? In terms of real money distributed to working people, as opposed to absurd markup pocketed by already absurdly rich people. In general I WANT rich people to spend their money! But not simply pass it to other rich people.
