Adam hates whiners ;)

My friend Adam has a great piece up on the cult of people who hate Ikea and Starbucks. I’m not a huge fan of either brand, but suffice it to say that I do own Ikea furniture and I do drink Starbucks coffee from time to time. This quote had me smiling:

You know what? I’m done with it. If your life is mediocre, I promise you, Ingvar Kamprad didn’t make it that way. You did. And if you’re so desperate for your own soixante-huit moment that you can sit there with a straight face and tell me that you’re being oppressed by flat-packable pine furniture with goofy pseudo-Scandinavian names, I’d advise you to spend a few days working with child slaves in the Sudan, or something.

    Awesome. It’s funny because it’s true. The fact is, Starbucks coffee is generally better than, and the same price as, that served at gas stations, 7-11 etc. etc. etc.
