It seems hypocritical to make fun of the guy when we have so many members, who are in college and don't really make that much money, who own really expensive watches. Is there really that much of a difference between mooching off the state, which he deserves since he paid all those taxes when he worked, and mooching off your parents?
Well, seeing as I may be among those you sited in your comment, I thought I would defend we expensive watch owners. I, for one, have purchased all of my watches. While I cannot say the same about my suits, I did purchase most of my other clothing as well. Not to mention the furniture in my loft, and the car I currently drive. I worked 60+ hours a week at an investment firm and run my own freelance graphic design firm to do so. I am also partly paying for schooling out of my own savings. I say this only to dismiss the notion that a twenty-one year-old (or nearly so) that owns fairly nice watches and is attending college must of course be cadging their parents. That being said, I do agree with you about the hypocrisy of judging Ernest without knowledge of his situation. Let him do what he likes when he likes (within reason, of course). If you do not find his polls informative or purposeful, than do not view or participate in them. It is that simple.
