As Hamilton Nolan at Gawker put it, "'Sure, it's an objectively large sum of money,' they say. 'But it is far smaller after I spend it.'"

I wonder where the income cutoff is between being in the 1% and the 99%.
 
+Eric Hopper According to a blog on the WSJ "An annual salary above $506,000 puts you in the top 1%, while you need to make less than $2,500 a year to be in the bottom 1%"
 
According to XKCD - http://xkcd.com/980/huge/#x=-1460&y=-7046&z=5 - it's 822k which comes from the Tax Policy Center, confirmed by a couple others. 515K is the middle of the 99th.

And to be in the bottom 1% you have to make less than 2.5k a year. Even I'm not down there.
