sanity will never prevail

that's right ladies and gents, after reading the article below, i have decided that sanity is a lost cause.

this week I saw the following article regarding a dessert in a Sri Lankan Hotel for the meagre sum of USD14,500. to be fair you get to keep a 80carat aquamarine worth USD14,000 that's part of the dish (unless of course you eat it, and then i expect a small sum of money will find a pauper to help you retrieve it!).

still that's a USD500 dessert. not having a particularly sweet tooth I cannot fathom a dessert at AUD50, but I cannot help but wonder what hope we have to address poverty, human rights, global warming, or anything of any consequence, when "creative thought" is being allocated to this kind of thing.
