Feeling like it might be time to finally get on the property ladder but worried that it's all going to be a bit too expensive?
Well here's some news to put it all in perspective.
Over in Monaco, a multi-storey penthouse is about to become the world's most expensive property by square metre. It'll be worth $390 million (£256 million) when it goes on the market, meaning you're probably never ever ever going to afford it ever.
It'll be the cherry on top of the Odeon Tower, which will contain 70 luxury apartments and will reach 170m high. The penthouse will boast 3,300 square metres and a private infinity pool with a water slide. That's right, a water slide.

to be bought by an arab sheikh who will never visit, letting it sit empty and slowly deteriorate

it's what's been happening in super high-end real estate for years, quite sickening

Above 100 proof or so whiskey will spend most of its time burning in your mouth/down your throat to be too enjoyable.

On the other hand: if you like your whiskey with a measure of water then you probably prefer drinks that are more in the range of 50-60 proof. Nothing wrong with that.

Just remember that when you get an 80- or 86-proof bottle of whiskey then you almost certainly are getting whiskey that has been adulterated by being watered down. Depending on its age--a whiskey generally will become lower in proof as it is aged in casks--whiskey will range from 130 proof on down in its casks before it gets processed and bottled by most of the commercial makers for the US market. An 80-proof bottle of 14-year Glenwhatis had been made up from the 14-year casks of Glenwhatis that have been blended together to get the Glenwhatis flavor, then (likely) watered down to 80 proof and (likely) has had flavorless caramel coloring added to get the expected Glenwhatis "look". I've seen minimally adulterated (meaning only the floaty bits had been filtered out) cask-strength whiskeys that have been totally clear to others which have been a cloudy brown, much darker than your typical Glenwhatis.

Once I saw a bottle of whiskey which had been aged 38 years before being bottled and it was only 68 proof. I have no idea how good or bad it was since it was 425 UK pounds (in 2001 or about $725 at the current conversion rate) for a 750 ml bottle.

The original artist who created the sculpture for this theme park in the 1970's will make a replacement. The men who knocked Humpty over have offered to pay for the repairs (though it is likely to be a replacement instead).

Yup, though Greeks views about sexuality were a tad different than our standards today. It was more centered around who was doing the penetrating and who was being penetrated rather than the equipment on either person. They also lumped young boys into the same category as women for the purposes of sex.

Thus, by ancient Greek standard, pounding some guy in the backside would actually increase your stature as a virile, manly man, while turning around and having him pound your backside would reduce it - since you would essentially be renouncing your manhood and become a woman...

That's probably why these two guys drew pictures of penises. They didn't want anyone to think either of them were female.
