A Pit In Your Soul The Size of Capitalism

If you’re anything like me, you’re giddy about calculators. Calorie calculators, mile trackers, wattage and amperage meters, etc. Here’s one from Slate that will calculate how long it took Mitt Romney to earn your salary in 2010.

Warning: My forehead skin peeled down off my face as the weight of my heart suddely had the mass of a neutron star and plummetted through my torso, the floor, the earth and broke orbit through the other side of the planet and became an object of the Cosmos, far and lost, forever gone.

In 2010, Mitt Romney made $32,000 in 12 hours 56 minutes and 27 seconds.

The calculator.
