I like measuring items in terms of other cheaper things. Like if I hear about some insane designer clothing item worth thousands of dollars I’ll say “That’s like four Playstation 3s!!!” The five dumplings for one dollar place(s) in Chinatown have completely changed my perception of the value of a dollar since I first went there. I often cite that place as the place I’ll eat at often if I were ever homeless. Hence, I have no sympathy for homeless people smoking $8/pack cigarettes who say they’re hungry.
