You know there are cars that cost $180K or more, and I normally would never even consider selling a bunch of stuff or going into debt to own one.
However if I really did had the spare bucks to just say, Hey I will try out that car like that crazy movie star totaled and see if I want to drive it a few months, and then if there were people standing in the mud on the side of the road waving signs saying "that car is over priced you fool. People, in fact us, are starving and you are just wasting money."
I think, I would just throw a few hundred dollar bills out the window and watch those folks in my Platinum plated rear mirror jump into the mud to fish them out.
I certainly wouldn't fret at what they had written on the signs.
