Re: Happy with what you have?

Let me introduce a different but relevant dimension into this thread.

Go here: http://www.globalrichlist.com/

and insert the data. If you are like me (a middle-income westerner), you should find out you're in the world's richest 1-2%. Now, that puts things in perspective, doesn't it?

Trust me my friend, you and I have absolutely not the slightest clue what hardship is. In the words of the late Terence McKenna:

The apocalypse is not something which is coming. The apocalypse has arrived in major portions of the planet and it’s only because we live within a bubble of incredible privilege and social insulation that we still have the luxury of anticipating the apocalypse.

I have what I have now, and I don't care how long it will last. Heck, I might not last another year, why on earth should I worry about whether my camera will last 20?
