The only people who came to mind who would qualify for Startup Castle is Gracie from Orphan Black and Kimmy Schmidt, which is problematic because (aside from being fictional), they both grew up in a cult. So really what they're saying is, if you grew up in a cult, you can come live in our cult for $1000 a month.
Growing up, my friend's dad was in some big NYC ad agency, don't know which one. I just remember him always having the latest sports car and having cool parties. Guess he was like Don or Pete for awhile, commuting home to his suburban life. Anyway, any excuse to post a Peggy gif:

@eatmoredumplings While I totally agree about your failure of imagination point, this definition of upper class as being anyone over $90,000 feels a little off. A household of two people making $50k each doesn't sound like upper class or even anywhere near it. But by this definition it is?

@OllyOlly Enjoy! She's great live.
That's something I really don't understand. I've seen it in many friends and thought they were weird for it. But here I am nearly a decade older and would've killed for that Courtney Barnett RSD release.
@A-M I've actually never gotten a job through something I've directly applied for. In fact, I've never gotten a job offer or even a call back from something I applied for. Only ever through recruiters who contacted me first.
Do people really list incomes on dating sites? I tried that once to see what would happen and the number of women messaging me increased from single digits per month to dozens.
