I can't tell if this is a spoof or not. I know its on Yahoo...but it could be the Onion just as easily.

Its real and typical lifestyle inflation - if you spend $600k a year and "only" make $650k you won't feel that secure because there is no wiggle room - we all know that is not the case and that mentality is completely opposite of this forum but that is how most people are.

Yahoo in general has been such a joke with some of their stuff though:

Here is one (although technically from morningstar) that is crazy too.

The best ones are from the Yahoo Contributor Network - typically a bunch of complainypants BS.
