"Things got so bad financially for Mr Trump, that Melania offered to resume her escorting for just one night - and she came back the following morning with $150.05, to which Mr Trump asked "who gave you the nickle?" - and Melania exclaimed "they ALL did!'" :lol:

As long as they can convince someone to think they do, that's all the deluxe high-end manufacturers need. How could you be the greatest coffee connoisseur without it?

German mentality... make it.. and make it so very good, it lasts as long as possible and doesn't need constant replacement.

American mentality....

They can always landfill them and buy another cheap one. It's more profitable this way.
