Watch This

While this is a cool video to watch, the watch itself represents the ultimate in conspicuous consumption. Priced at a mere 2.5 million Swiss Francs (about 3 million American green peachy backs, although with these kinds of numbers the daily fluctuations in exchange rates really matter), only seven are to be made, and only six sold.

I set down my watch next to the computer the day I retired. My cell phone has a clock, my computer has a clock, our TV has a clock, our coffee maker has a clock, our microwave oven has a clock. I still have a bare patch on the my left wrist.

Do you think if we gave one to President Obama he'd take the hint and quit? It would be totally worth it. How much harm could President Biden do?
