Misanthropy X

Our Evolution is Futile

I’m Just Saying

Teodoro Nguema Obiang, son of the dictator of Equitorial Guinea, is trying to build a yacht worth 380 million dollars, almost three times of what they spend on health and education.

I do not need to say more. Or do I?

Recently, John Audubon’s “Birds of America” was sold for over 10 million. Pablo Piccaso’s “Nude, Green Leaves and Bust” sold for 106.5 million. Amadeo Modigliani’s “Nude Sitting on a Divian” sold for 69 million. Andy Warhol’s “Men in Her Life” sold for 63.4 million. Less recently, “No. 5, 1948” by Jackson Pollock, a very abstract work, was sold for 140 million in 2006, the most expensive piece of art of all time.

Gail Posner and Leona Heimsly has each given millions to their dogs. Multiple virtual spaces on Entropia Universe have sold for over 300, 000. And who could forget AIG spenind 400,000 at a hotel after they were bailed out?

I’m just saying that this is why Communism souns so nice at times…
