I just spent a good part of my morning watching a show called "Secret Lives Of The Mega Rich" on VH1. Now, I'd be lying if I said I didn't like my fair share of trashy television, but I'm starting to think I should shift my trashy television viewing habits away from watching things about supremely wealthy people.

Why, you ask? (Or maybe not, but like I've said before, I don't see any other bloggers around here so pipe down).

Because no one ever died from watching insanely thin people piss away money on shit that they will never be able to afford.

I spent my morning watching a flaming homosexual drop $220,000 on a shopping spree. I watched the CEO from Bodog casino spend as much on a vacation. I saw 5 million dollar car collections, hotel rooms worth forty four thousand dollars a night (More than I make in a single year).

I then spent the rest of the morning pondering what makes them so much different than the rest of us (besides their bloated wallets and sense of self importance).

The more I thought, the more I realized that there's nothing different about them. Nothing. If you ignore the ones that are born into it, they just seem to be an exceptionally lucky group of people.

That being said, I totally want to be lucky! The only other defining factor is that most of them seem to have a decided lack of common sense. There was a pool with gold at the bottom. Shit, half of my jewelry isn't real gold.

Fuck those people in their asses.

Unless I somehow get lucky and find myself surrounded by them, in which case we can just pretend this never happened.

You forgot the most defining factor of most of these people: An utter lack of what we mere mortals would call a conscience.

Lol. "Fuck those people in their asses." Keep making me laugh.
