    I've watched a few of these recently and have really come to like them. The $39,000 backpack is hilarious! If you're so rich that you'd want to spend this sort of money...

    Even Bill Gates, the richest man on Earth (supposedly) isn't that wasteful. I think he'd much rather toss an extra $39,000 towards charity rather than blow it funding the Olsen twins wasteful lifestyle.

    The people who buy the backpack are a bit out there in my opinion. It doesn't even look that nice, looks rather tacky to wear an animal as a fashion statement. Although society advances we still behave like tribal people.

    Yes, I think so. I'm amazed at the myriads of justifications to the contrary. No matter how well-educated, the root arguments are little different than that of the least educated. Neanderthals we are not. Humans, however, we are.

    <sigh> A $39,000 backpack? A fool and their money are soon parted.
