"Six hundred text messages contain less data than one minute of a phone call,"

Seriously, what - like 600 text messages of 1 word each?

1 - I don't text much.
2 - I'm fine with the tap water from my kitchen sink.
3 - No a big fan of Pop corn.
4 - I buy Generic anyway, even my "Tylenol".
5 - Only idiots buy those.
6 - I make my own at home.
7 - Don't drink wine.
8 - I buy maybe 3 cards a year.
9 - Read answer for 5.
10 - Depends on what's cheaper.

I'm sure there are other less known things that we're paying through the nose for.

"Why aren't diamonds on the list."

Because the initial cost to GET them includes things like mining the land, processing, and land owners fees... They sometimes also include basic freedoms, human rights, and human life... I'm sure the $2000 pricetag on that diamond ring is surely a mark DOWN against that...

It's only $5 extra a month for unlimited texts on my plan, and I send over 60 a day, I'm pretty sure that's not overpriced...

Buying bottled water, in my opinion, is the ultimate waste of money and resources. The stuff inside those bottles is no more pure than the stuff in your tap, and what happens to all those bottles? Find a water fountain or buy a Brita filter and use a glass, people!

Out of everything on this list, I only get the precut vegetables. Those salad-in-a-bag things are outstanding. As for water, I'll buy it from the reverse osmosis machines using refillable containers at the grocery store. It's the same filtering process, has the exact same quality, and costs something like 30 cents a gallon as opposed to over a dollar per pint for Aquafina.

i nnever buy any of those. unless the bottled water is no more than 20 cents (about 15 US cents). i always give my friends a lecture of how stupid they are when they order a bottle of water (especially when its not cooled) with their meal.

The reason you pay so much for brand names is they take the profits and by the patent on possible cures. Keeping you hooked and dependent on the drug. There is no generic drugs for insulin. With a customer base of about 120 million worldwide using 1 bottle every 30 days insulin users that's a pretty hefty profit. Without insurance copay one bottle of insulin Humalog cost's my insurance company $72.00. If the majority are on that pace that's a nice amount of gross income coming in routinely.

I have bought pre-cut vegetables today! A mix of three different kinds of lettuce with carrot and I tell you that I am cheaper off then buying the three lettuces and a carrot... I also know that it is expensive but I do not need that much lettuce and like the article says, it saves time!

The reason brand-name drugs cost so much is because the brand names need the money to cover the cost of bringing you a miracle cure and researching new things like how to cure cancer and sh*t. Generic drugs are a leech on the progress of science. Generic manufacturers are just in it for money.

Interesting list, to be sure, but the only one I actually buy is name-brand drugs, and that's only on prescriptions which are not available as generics yet. Last month, buying my generic drugs (after insurance) cost me less than five dollars for four prescriptions. But buying Enbrel, the subcutaneous injection for RA, was $50 after insurance, and would have been $2500 each month without insurance.

However, in this instance I consider this acceptable. I would rather pay more money for drugs and actually have them available for purchase than pay little and have fewer available. I just like to think that the high price is going towards finding new drugs for my condition that might actually work.
