20-a-meal-at-benu-in-san-francisco-costs-143-per-person

I was reading about an exclusive San Francisco restaurant where a fixed price dinner cost $248.00 without tax or tip.  Not only is the price fixed – so is the dinner choice – there are no menus.  The world famous chef decides what he’ll cook that night and you get what he prepares for you. Bottles of recommended wines start at $1000.00.  The joint is booked weeks in advance and it’s not easy to get a table.  Neither coupons nor food stamps are accepted and after dinner mints are filled with pretention.

I’m sure I’d choke on the dinner because I’d be laughing so hard. Really – what is the point of diminishing return on a a lunch or dinner?  I don’t know but I’m sure it’s far south of $250.

I’ve known a number of millionaires in my life but only one billionaire.  He was a Texan who’s family owned a number of banks, cattle ranches, and car dealerships.  In the early 1800’s, his great-grandfather owned millions of acres of land through which railroad companies wanted to run tracks.  He sold them the land but retained the oil and mineral rights.  Of course construction crews immediately struck vast pools of oil and natural gas – some people are just lucky like that.

If my friend were alive today and I showed him the article about the $250 lunch, I think I know what he’d have said.  He’d shake his head and say, “And it all turns to shit.”  At the end of each workday he went down to the parking lot and climbed into his 11-year old beat-up station wagon.  There was nobody he cared to impress.

Or

Or

Watch Maria Tonight

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015

2-years ago, during a Congressional  “fiscal cliff” crisis,  Maria Bartiromo took on Senator Ben Cardin.  Since then Maria has switched to Fox Business News and is one of the questioners in tonight’s Republican presidential debate.  Look for her to kick some ass.  Here she is from 2-years ago:

“Maria Bartiromo, respected CNBC journalist and managing editor of The Wall Street Journal Report broadcasts live from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange.  Last year she was interviewing Senator Ben Cardin (D-Maryland) about the “fiscal cliff” America is facing (yes, the same one we’re facing AGAIN!) when she “lost it” and went nuts on the incompetent boob. Watch her face get more and more angry as he bumbles her answers.  It’s not a good idea to rile Italian women.”

Afterwards a floor-full of stock traders, watching the broadcast from monitors, burst into applause.  Get him, Maria!

Julius Peppers Is An Asshole

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015

Panther Cam Newton gives the ball to a child in the stands each time he scores a touchdown at home. This time, sore-loser Packer’s Julius Peppers held the ball away from him and threw it away. Newton retrieved the ball and gave it to the fan.

You can take the guy out of the hood but you can’t take the hood out of the guy.

Julius Peppers, asshole:  https://www.google.com/
