    Better measure, click on the wealth button, not income. I didn't make the top 1%. I bet most of us here wont by that scale.

    Sadly, cars and computers and flat screens lose their value quickly......my "possessions" add up to one decent estate sale...

    Oh gosh, I'm shocked to discover that I'm better off financially than vast swaths of the populations of India, China, Bangladesh, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Africa, Laos, Vietnam, and on and on and on. Please...tell me something I don't already know. :confused:
