    In terms of feuding cities... Vienna would have clocked everyone. Well, Paris would have won a battle or two... but Vienna was the b!tch that kept on winning.

      I can understand a music catalogue to be worth such sums bc one would actually earn money with it...(over a certain period of time). But a painting? It's just there. It doesn't get better... only fainter.

      On the topic if luxury watches... I would never own a Rolex... bc I am clumsy... I hit my wrist against all kinds of things... it would scratch or break and then what? $60,000 down the drain.

      Also ... watches do not work better the more expensive they are. I also hate jewellry in any shape or form. So, I wear a cheap ass watch for work and take it off when I'm home.

      On the topic of luxury fashion brands... I despite Gucci and Dolce & Gabbana... I judge people so hard when I see them wearing thise brands.
      Why is music more worthy than a painting in your opinion? Besides the somewhat weak reason you already added. Elaborate a bit more cause I'm honestly curious.

        BC... music is not physical... it's a record and the right to record xyz composition. You can also re-arrange music, re-produce it and make it more artistically awesome.

        I was thinking of the Beatles' music catalogue which Michael Jackson owned until 2017. It was worth as much as it was bc it was generating as much as it did.

        To me a painting can be great and wonderful, but it is fixed. If you have it and you do not want to donate it to a museum... it becomes your responsibility... you must take care of it, so it doesn't go kaputt.

        When it comes to artistic value, I would rank them as such:

        1. Music
        2. Architecture
        3. Film
        4. Literature
        5. Art
        ....

        unranked: dance. lol.

            The fact that it's fixed and unchangeable makes it special IMO. I can see where you're coming from though and why music would be more interesting. I think I would agree...but the mystery around a painting that's just 'there' intrigues me a lot.

                  Same. One of my nightmares is that my zipcode would win and I'm not participating LOL. But I don't think I'd spend my money on the gamble really.

                                Deserved since they have had the most profound impact on science and on the world.

                                Forgot to include legend Emmy Noether in my list. Without some of her theorems the foundations of physical laws would break down. She is actually way more accomplished than Curie.

                                            I'm looking forward to the noms and hope to see some surprises.

                                                Pets like dogs definitely don't belong outside. Don't get one if you have problem with that. Breeding is basically manmade evolution and dogs need human affection. A dog is very different from a "usual animal".

                                                I for one have a dog and he's allowed in the kitchen but I also have that weird habit of not preparing my meals on the floor.
