Am I just not understanding the math? They bought the batch of 60 bottles for $80,000 and are reselling them at $1k per . . . thereby losing $20,000?

You're assuming they're selling all 60 this way, which they likely aren't. 

But you are correct that they are selling this allotment, actual # unknown, at a loss, but perhaps they made a mint on the others.

worth a few minutes of your time.  the photog really brings out obama's humanity, something that wasn't really done over the past 7.5 years.

Souza has been may favorite Insta/flickr follow in the last decade.

or perhaps this is an implicit admission that they overpaid, there is no way they are going to make all their money back, so they're taking what they can get?

Yeah, I would think a rare wine would generally appreciate over time (and rarely, if ever, lose 50-60% of its market value in a year).

I sure would be pissed to be a person who spent 2-3k on a bottle of this through an exclusive sale only to have it offered to the general public a year later.

This is the real danger in my eyes, having done wine auctions in the past.

Pretty sure I have an idea what's causing her chronic pain.

The Nightly Show was cancelled, which bums me out as Wilmore picked up nicely from Stewart with the outrage..  Apparently it was cancelled in part because it wasn't creating content for the youtube generation... so  are we really living in a world where nonsense like lip sync battle and car seat karoke is what people want... get off my damn lawn...

I wasn't a huge fan of the panel segments, but the other stuff was pretty good.

But as far as political memes go, Wilmore was way far behind his peers. I very rarely saw his stuff in my timelines, unlike Noah, Colbert, Oliver, Bee, and even Meyers.
