They are jerks because their taxes are too high. Clearly, the problem would be solved with tax cuts.

bunner: There is a tacit understanding in that ragged, clinging to Victorian times mess that is western culture that, should one acquire enough bank notes, that they are somehow - allowed - to be a complete bag of dicks.  Allowed.  Like "Achievement unlocked".  And we we stop treating people who think that way as if the sun shines out of their ass, they'll stop.  Maybe we'll even start using money properly.  I ain't holding my breath.

I see someone completed their Power & Privilege training

cman: scotchcrotch: Not excusing all "rich" people, but I own and run my own business and am pretty well off.

The number of frivolous lawsuits or just people in general trying to take advantage increases exponentially when you do well financially. It gets to the point you become cynical and see the worst in people.

Cry me a farkin river, I know. But it's true

Not well off enough for TotalFark I see

Part of being rich is understanding the value of something.

Rich people are smart, hard working, aggressive and risk takers.

The highfaluting, sensitive intellectual types are not aggressive risk takers. And they are intensely jealous of those who have more balls than them. They are pissed that society doesn't give them the compensation they feel they're entitled to...

timujin: Aren't psychologists generally rich?

Also, I'm not rich, but I'm also an asshole, how much does that skew these results?

Median of 70k for a phd in psych.

two assistants parked themselves for their first study near a four way stop sign between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. The assistants randomly selected cars as they approached the stop sign and observed whether the driver, after coming to a stop, waited his or her turn or cut in front of another driver who had arrived earlier, thereby breaking the etiquette of the intersection

Good they didn't do the study in Massachusetts, they wouldn't have been able to determine anything from a four way stop.
