I think that from a logical perspective, that makes sense. But I still couldn't find any research about it, which is kind of silly. There's no research on the impact of "luxury" or the perception of "more".

But you are totally right. Any increase will be noticeable until you adjust to it. The friend that gave me the idea says he's already used to the 280 characters now, so...¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If any of your scientist friends ever want to do an experiment with daily cheeseburgers, I will readily volunteer. :)

You and me both! I'm imagining a video that starts like, "If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, what does a cheeseburger a day do?" :D
