I had no idea Sharper Image filed for Ch 11, serves them right for their faux-elitist approach, selling things for $50 when they're worth no more than $20.

Not really. Let's say you pay $15 wholesale for an item and only 10 people buy it at $75, while another business pays $15 for the same item, but 50 people buy it at $40.

You: $750 - $150 = $600 profit
Them: $2000 - $750 = $1,250 profit

So even though you are charging nearly twice as much as them, they earned more than twice what you did. And while it is an overly simplistic example, it goes to show that just because you charge more doesn't mean you'll earn more.

It was a joke...I understand how companies make a profit, but thanks.

BTW, I don't think that building was World Com's world headquarters.

I believe this was their headquarters when they filed for bankruptcy, though I could be wrong...

It was Worldcom's headquarters before they moved from Jackson, MS. There were no rules stating that the hq photo had to be the most recent building.
