Irrespective of who’s digestive tract it comes from I would imagine it will still need to have the same eggs and milk base or it isn’t going to bind properly.

There are various tipping points with money; the more you have, the less you need.

I don't consider myself to be rich but I do have more than average and, as such, I get things for free that others have to pay for.

Breakdown cover, access to airport lounges, hotels, flights, food and drink when travelling, upgrades, invitations to events, cheap credit cards, concierge services, insurance etc.

The trick is to get to the point where that stuff starts being offered and then keeping it going.

I'm sure that if you get up to the next tier there's a bunch of stuff that the likes of me can only dream of.

Money is for the poor.
I'm not arguing, I'm explaining why I'm right.

I don’t know that that’s quite how it works. This seems to be more about the ratio of value to expense. Below a certain point the quality of the goods and services you buy either doesn’t properly fulfil the need or adversely effects their lifespan. Beyond a certain point the value added per pound spent exponentially decreases so you end up pay a lot more for very little. In so far as I’m aware that sweet spot were you get the most for your money exists for pretty much everything.

Many of these ‘perks’ are actually a paid for part of the service. It’s a bit like buying a car in the sense that the support provided by the dealer network is part of the product.

It’s also about understanding what it is you are paying for. I have an uncle who does his general shopping at harrod’s because “you get a better class of scum.” Personally I’ve tried buying things from harrod’s (most notably a £200 box of chocolates which were less palatable than doggy chocs) and the product is never worth the price. What he’s paying for is simply the snob value. Likewise with people here who lose large sums gambling. Unless they have some means by which to change the odds in their favour what they’re paying thousands of dollars for is the experience of gambling.

So while you do need a certain amount of cash to be truely economical, it’s also about understanding that not all the glitters is necessarily gold and sometimes what you’re paying for is often the experiance or the name or the hype or the joy of having the newest shiny toy which in practical terms is no different than last years shiny toy.

It could be snob value or it could be that people perceive it to be of higher quality when it comes at a higher price.

When I used to sell craft beer, the sales at markets were low when compared to other beers until we marked up our price to be about R10 higher than most of the other beers. From that point on we sold double the amount.

The only drink to sell more was a diet cooler that was promoted by practically naked russian women. The cooler itself tasted disgusting.

I don't understand it either. But maybe that's because I have breasts of my own.

I understand how selling fragrances with tits can make sense since the adverts for lynx for instance portray girls being aggravated to the smell. Otherwise it’s selling purely on the association of “I like boobs therefore I should buy this thing with boobs next to it”

Attracted* lol. Perhaps the typo is more realistic of what happens

People naturally seek sexual partners.

Women seek partners less than men because when a woman gets pregnant she doesn't require sex for the next nine months whereas men can continue to seed other women as and when they want.

Therefore, women will look to find a man with enduring qualities that will be advantageous to their young whereas men will seek out women who represent a good breeding match, which is why female characteristics are exaggerated to attract - big red lips, big t1ts, wide hips, big eyes etc.

Titts works on just about all men. I won’t make a purchase just for that though, she wants to toss in a blowjob that might influence me a little bit.

This is a very heterosexual response. What is your theory of attraction to those who are attracted to the same sex?
