Heard this one lately? “Movie x has broken all previous box office records on its opening weekend…” Chances are you’ve heard it for, well, just about every movie that’s come out in the past 5 years. But how do those new record numbers stand up when you adjust for inflation?

Good night, dear journal, but first, a moment of zen.

Sagehood has nothing
To do with governing others
But is a matter of ordering oneself.
Nobility has nothing
To do with power and rank,
But is a matter of self realization;
Attain self-realization,
And the whole world
Is found in the self.
Happiness has nothing
To do with wealth and status,
But is a matter of harmony.

Lao-tze
