Handbags- Is it immoral to buy a 10,000 pound designer handbag?
The exam reputed to be one of the hardest in the world has just got (slightly) easier. All Souls College, Oxford has this year dropped the famous one-word essay question that has taxed new entrants for almost a century.
I n a typical year, around 50 academic high flyers – all graduates – compete for fellowships at the Oxford college, lasting seven years and offering an annual stipend of £14,783. For the two successful candidates, it is often a ticket to academic stardom. Former fellows include Sir Isaiah Berlin, Marcus du Sautoy and Keith Joseph. In previous years, by far the most daunting element was a single card with one word on it ("innocence", "miracles" or "water"), about which candidates were asked to write coherently for three hours.
The exam now consists of four papers of three hours each: two general ones and two specialist papers. Try this paper from 2008 for size. If it's all a bit much, don't worry, both John Buchan and Hilaire Belloc took the exam and failed to get in.

I had the dubious honour of Driving around from of the the International Olympic Committee members wives. She carried a Louis Vuitton handbag of course. I mean don't all Olympic Official wives carry around this brand. Well one day she wanted to visit the Balmain Flea Markets It was my job as well as driving her there to to escort her around as she walked and I guess act as a de facto security guard at the same time. Well anyway whilst browsing she wanted to buy these candles at the Flea Market they amount to about $25 Australian. Well she opened her Louis Vuitton handbag and guess what ? You guessed itthat's right there was wads of American dollar bills wrapped up in elastic bands. Well wasn't there a kerfuffle the market store owners had noe idea what to do. They would hardly ever be expected to change currency whilst selling candles. But guess what they did have a manual credit card processor. So outcome the black Am-ex Card. Why am I telling you this I feared an International Public relations nightmare if the handbag was stolen.
- How do you know if your designer handbag is authentic or a knock-off? Real or fake?
Designer handbags are EXPENSIVE. With that said, how frustrating would it be to be told that your purse is actually fake? In some countries, like in Europe, it's against the law not just to sell a fake purse,...
Is it immoral to buy a 10,000 pound handbag-In my view it is not immoral to buy a 10,000 pound handbag if all these other conditions are met. That is you have such a large amount of surplus income or financial reserves firstly all other things should be paid out first. All liabilities to banks credit card companies and other loans. That a proportion of funds has already been allocated to local national and international charities. At least 10% of discretionary income. Then and only then should a amount of 10,000 pounds be made available .
