Yup, worth the annual fee for 50% bonus on large purchases when the $95 EDP earns it on all purchases  ::)
Does anyone believe that a typical checkout agent knows what a Centurion card even is?

Typical checkout agent - unlikely.  Saks/Nordstrom cashiers - maybe

Is it solicitation if you're paying $2.5K/year to hook up with girls?

Depends on the girl...

Concierge had to tell him about gold 3x on advertising. He spends 2,500 a yr on a card without researching what other cards offer?

That's 0.003% of his annual spending.
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

There funniest part is that he says the biggest advantage the black card has over the biz plat is that you get a 50% points bonus on purchases over 5k. (It is possible that he meant that it's unlimited on the black card.)

Pretty poorly written article. Seems like the guy just wrote it to show off his black card and to tell about the one time a girl noticed him, but hey that's just my opinion
