Why youtube kicks ass: Greedy rats and kittens riding vacuum via oyceter

Funny in a not very good way: You Try to Live on 500K in This Town by the New York Times. This is a serious article laying out just how hard it would be for banking executives to live on a measy half a mill. Yes, really. I heard people mocking it on a podcast and couldn't believe it was for real...Sadly, it is real. My personal reaction (after the snort of derision) was to wonder if these people didn't have savings to cover their expenses just in case. You know, what everyone is told to do. I suppose "everyone" doesn't include them?

I heard another podcast discussing this, and one person confessed to thinking that $500K seemed to little. She admitted that she'd been brainwashed into thinking that these people deserve tons of money because that's the way it is. She lives in New York, so maybe the NYT has also drunk the kool-aid?

Of course it's things like this that enrage the rest of us. Especially when it's been made abundantly clear that these people FAILED at their jobs. XD;
