    I just thought it might be an image of direct correlation, and need no further explanation! :)

  36. Namaps says:

    A: Pop musicians
    B: Classical composers

    I’d go with that one, except for quite a few classical composers were very, very wealthy in their day. I’m sure some did live rather sparse lives, but of all the ones for whom I have some knowledge about their personal life, all the well-known classical composers lived pretty posh lives.

  37. Zach says:

    hey, not really submitting, but I think Ghandi rather lacked class. He refused penicillin for his wife and left her to die painfully (then twice accepted western medicine save his own life, appendectomy and I forget), participated as a mercenary in 2 foreign wars (non-violent?), and in his dotage always kept a bunch of young naked women in his bed while shunning his wife.

    I think he just had good p.r. not class.

    **Note: This is not intended to say anything about anyone’s particular post. Just a general trend in how we work.

    Well, we’ve had some pretty poor presidents in the past as well. Andrew Jackson comes to mind.

    I think the best so far is Roman Empire/Roman Republic

    You can’t get from point A to point B.”

    Well, someone who was rich enough (and classless enough) to be at point A, but had a change of heart and gave away all that money… would be pretty classy in my book. So I’d say it’s very possible.

  90. Arun says:

    B to A : The journey of most artists !

  91. Fluidly Unsure says:

    Once again, being too specific results in being rather anile (anybody want to graph this?).

    Notice the period? It is obviously a class selector for the Hindu caste system. (CSS = Caste System Selector). I’ll bet the standard is now that today’s street vendors are much wealthier than the Brahmin in a business suit standing next to him.
