When I make my millions, I won’t be doing any of this dumb-ass shit

The most consistently similar personality dysfunction of the wealthy is their desire to excel at discovering new and utterly pointless ways to amaze and impress each other.

Like the “observation capsule” shown above that will be on the Quantum of the Seas luxury cruise ship.   The ship is supposedly the pinnacle of grandeur, and the capsule is pumped up by the Royal Caribbean website with: “Take yourself to new heights with the jewel-shaped capsule that gently ascends over 300 feet above sea level. Breathtaking 360° views of the sea and our destinations make the North Star one of the most anticipated features on this ship.” 

So, to recap then, this most anticipated feature has the purpose of taking the wealthy up for better views of the sea.  All the way around them; 360.  The sea.  Flat, with little waves.  Over there:  water.  And there: more water.  Wait!, hold on!  What’s that?!  Oh, right; it’s just water.

Better views of water?  Really?  Like there’s gonna be some surprise ending on THAT endeavor?

I admit that I might be jaded because I’d rather die than step foot on a cruise ship, but when I’m wealthy–and can afford the horse-tranquilizer strength medication needed to get me on a ship like this–I hope Royal Caribbean has axed the above-water capsule.  Because it’s utterly pointless.   Nothings going on up there.   Now, if they went with a below-water capsule, then things could get more interesting.  But I suppose it’s probable that none of us would ever get on a ship if we knew what was going on under there.
