That’s Why They Call Money, Money

Palazzo Versace Hotel

Oh, you super wealthy.  Is there any other group of people that everybody hates, yet secretly wants to be a member of?  Maybe the Jackson family?  I often imagine what I would do with an unimaginable amount of wealth.  The possibilities are endless, but after much deliberation I think I would just buy all of the hairbrushes in the world.  Deal with that!

Now, the super wealthy have taken luxury to a whole another level, “Versace, the renowned fashion house (pictured above), is to create the world’s first refrigerated beach so that hotel guests can walk comfortably across the sand on scorching days.”  Oh, goodie!  We would definitely not want to burden the super rich with having to take six seconds out of their lifes to have to put on sandals.  That’s just crazy.  Why have them put on their shoes when we can just build an entire cooling system for them!  C’mon people, it’s just logic.

Although, this is causing concern to some, “Versace’s plans have shocked environmentalists. Rachel Noble, the campaigns officer at Tourism Concern, which promotes sustainable tourism, said that the carbon generated by such projects would contribute to climate change, whose worst effects would be felt by the poor.”  The poor!  What is this person doing worrying about the poor when the super rich’s feet could possibly get a little hot while they’re on vacation!  And climate change, Rachel Noble, obviously you’re not aware that they are actualy off-setting climate change – they’re actually cooling the temperature of the beach, idiot.  What have you done that’s actually lowered the temperature of the earth?

This story is Good News for:

1. Super Rich – Will the super rich even have to move in fifteen years?  I think the luxury hotels will end up doing all of their sightseeing, take all their pictures, eat their meals in about a decade.

2. Dubai Hotel Workers – As Dubai caters more and more to the super rich tourist industry, the main beneficiary has got to be the workers at these hotels.  Look at that photo again.  Not a bad place to spend 40 hours a week.

Anyone else it’s Good News for?  Leave it.
