A house is just a pile of stuff with a cover on it. That's all you need in life, a little place for your stuff. That's all your house is: a place to keep your stuff. If you didn't have so much stuff, you wouldn't need a house. You could just walk around all the time. Sometimes you gotta move, gotta get a bigger house. Why? No room for your stuff anymore. - George Carlin

Now this guy must have A LOT of stuff.

GUARDIAN, UK - In the most conspicuous sign yet of India's unprecedented prosperity, the country's richest man, Mukesh Ambani, is building a new home in the financial hub of Mumbai: a 60-story palace with helipad, health club and six floors of car parking. The building, named Antilla after a mythical island, will have a total floor area greater than Versailles and be home for Mr Ambani, his mother, wife, three children and 600 full-time staff.

WOW - That's 100 staff members for each resident. I wonder what his stuff looks like.
What WERE they thinking?

U.K. SUN - THE controversial 2012 London Olympics logo was rocked by another blow last night — after it was ruled too dangerous to view on-screen.
An animated version of the symbol used on TV and the internet had to be dropped because it could trigger fits in thousands of people.

The £400,000 logo, a graffiti-style spelling of 2012 in shades of pink, blue, green and orange, was branded “hideous” when it was launched on Monday.

And Olympics bosses were left squirming with embarrassment after an epilepsy group reported 12 cases of people collapsing through looking at it.
I mean I knew it was ugly and some have said it looks like Lisa Simpson giving head, but damn, it can kill too.
