Never have the lyrics "I'm feeling so bohemian like you" rang more true.

Should you ever want to check your social standings, we'd suggest throwing an event in an outer-borough. No matter who you are, people will never want to come.

Besides the obvious, that all being hopelessly luxurious and all, living as a rich American with all its benefits, vacations, and cleanses also unsurprisingly increases your lifespan. Who would have guessed?
