Was just speaking with my father about this the other day. How much money must you have before you'd even consider dropping $36 million on a single cup?!?!

On the one hand, it's nice to pine for that kind of wealth. On the other, mo money mo problems.

Well honestly, I doubt too many people will be crying for the problems the money brings them....if they are looking for the rest of us to start a pity party, good luck with that.
