That's not shallow. First off, it was meant as a joke. Secondly, the ratio of a shirt:my income equals some peoples' M6:income. Filthy rich doesn't even begin to explain the wealthy people over there. I'm not generalizing about Dubai; I'm generalizing about the large percentage of inhabitants there who have more money than they could spend in thirty lifetimes. "In that region" and Dubai itself are two totally different concepts as well....
