ridiculously expensive modern art

We’re having a go at being cultured today. Lovers of modern arts are a special breed of people. They are able to see things other people can’t.

For instance, the colour blue is just blue to many of us. But to modern art lovers, it is a blue that evokes the artist’s emotions of longing and sadness, you get my drift.

We have a hard time wrapping our heads around the fact that some of these ridiculous modern arts were sold for millions of dollars, the most recent being of a blue painting with a white line in the middle – that went for $43.8 million dollars!

Don’t just take my word for it! The following are 15 examples of paintings that would be considered junk if they were sold at an ordinary garage sale, but because of their extravagant history, descriptions and estimated value, were sold for millions to the highest bidder:

How does a doctor go about revealing to his patient that he has a terminal illness?

They teach us to get down to the patient’s level, so it doesn’t feel like you’re talking down to them (literally and figuratively). But, ideally you wouldn’t tell them bad news in the waiting room. You would want to do it in an exam room or your office, where both of you can sit comfortably facing each other.

I was surprised to learn there is actually a really structured way on how to tell a patient bad news. Literally a 6 step process that all physicians are taught to follow.

Matteo  Messina Denaro

Who is the head of the Sicilian Mafia?

Matteo Messina Denaro is believed to hold the position of “boss of bosses” of the Sicilian Mafia. “Diabolik”, his nickname (after a comic book character), is 55 and has been hiding from law enforcement for 24 years. He’s wanted for dozens of murders. He’s from Castelvetrano, Sicily. Italian law enforcement believes he periodically visits his hometown. (He’s a figurehead. The Sicilian Mafia consists of a multitude of crime families, with a commission or cupola acting as the top governing body. There’s probably no real boss of bosses, a term the public loves. There may be bosses who are more powerful than others due to wealth, alliances, etc. But I believe that smarter, powerful ones know enough to keep their profile low even when they’re attending family events in the safety of their home.)
