You're all getting triple the U.S. median income before bonuses, and you're not even expected to work three times as hard. We're talking 50-70ish hours a week. Sometimes more, sometimes less.

You're each one of the 16 million richest people alive, but you'd never know from reading this thread. If you don't like what comes along with being a Master of The Universe, leave.
