London had wanted a solar array for years, but couldn’t afford it on his income as a merchant seaman — roughly $70,000 per year.

In Canada, the official poverty level is around $25,000 per year for single persons. It shows you how rich the Americans are compared to the rest of the world, even compared to another first-world country.

Hey don't lump the rest of us in with those Bay Area folks.

It was kinda like stuffing the wrong card in a computer, when you're stickin' those artificial stimulants in your arm. -- Dion, noted computer scientist
