    Even the original intent does not look like luxury. Even my butler would not tolerate those conditions.

    Being poor is like the Fyre festival but all the time, rich people told

    The hellish existence being experienced by the rich kids in the Bahamas is available in most refugee camps and doesn’t cost $12,000, according to reports.

    Useful to know that it's easy to get rich people to congregate on a remote island with no escape plan

    Good article here, including the pitch deck

    But for the investors who were able to glimpse Fyre’s pitch deck, little of this should have been a shock. The presentation, which I recently obtained and appears in full at the bottom of this page, is one of the most preposterous invitations for outside capital that I have ever seen (and that’s saying something). It’s hard to pin down, on some level, the most ludicrous element of the document. Perhaps it’s the fact that the 43-page deck resembles an amalgamation of a Miami Beach spa package with selfies you might find saved on a teenager’s smartphone. Or perhaps it’s the fact that the employees who work for Fyre (yes, it’s more than just a festival, it’s an app too!) are referred to as “The Fyre Squad.” Or maybe it’s that a pitch deck seeking $25 million in funding ends with a quote from the philosopher and poet Rumi, noting: “Seek those who light your flames.” Though, I’d venture to say that the most infuriating thing about the Fyre pitch deck is what occurs on page 21 through 25, in a segment called “The Fyre Starters.”
