    They NEVER like the truth.

That must be why so many of you are always angry and unhappy.

    The net worth of the people is not relevant. The largest payer didn't consume a $73 dinner, and the least didn't order just a soda. They all consumed the same level of service.

    Wow. This is completely based on the projections of your class warfare fantasies, but has nothing to do with the analogy.

    OTOH, it does provide some insights into your psychological issues.

    Get help. Seriously.


    Except that the "fantasy construct" is an excellent analogy. Wei's addition of his emotional baggage doesn't change it.
    You do realize that a Lexus and Mercedes wear out the roads faster than a Prius and Volt don't you?

    Of course they do. They get driven far more often because you don't have to wind them up after every hundred miles. Duh. :D

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    Actually, the battery in the Volt is only good enough for 35 miles.
