A question of balance

You’ve all seen them, and I’d bet you’ve made fun of them too: $500 cars with thousand-dollar stereos — and, lately, rims that sell for $3k or so.

I must point out, though, that similar outrages to sense and sensibility exist at other price points. Exhibit A: a $150,000 shift knob.

The real knob, of course, is the nudnik who buys the damn thing.

(Note: This isn’t much better, but at least it’s only $40.)

    As the saying goes, “A fool and his money…” I wouldn’t buy something like that if I could afford it, but I guess I do buy dumb things with the money I do have. But still…

    I never quite understood how a fool and his money got together in the first place, if not through inheritance or the lottery.

    Oh, fools make money all the time, through various circumstances. But they are parted so quickly that it’s as if they were never in the same place at all. Next time you’re in the NYC area, stop by your nearest Scores and watch it happen.
