Why don't you rich people ever do something really useful with your money? Like saving the animation and video game industry. Fixing education in american schools. Helping some unfortunate smart intellectuals which were born in a poor family.

there are ~1,800 billionaires in the world
~250 are chinese, ~100 indian, ~100 russian, so let's assume around 1,000 maybe speak enough english to prevail on Veeky Forums.

according to wikipedia in 2015 there were only 46 billionaires under 40 years of age in the whole world and i guarantee you, nobody over 40yo who has a job has heard about Veeky Forums. given the above ratio, maybe half of them speaks english. do you seriously think one of 23 eligible billionaires in the world hangs out on Veeky Forums? that approaches lottery odds to be honest...

I mean, even the Washington Post was talking about fucking /mlp/ one month ago:

There are a lot of business reporters on Veeky Forums. Specifically, Bloomberg and Reuters reporters.

General reporting is well represented on /b/.

Major news outlets have their young shitbirds trawling through /pol/ constantly. I see more breaking news on /pol/ before I see it on the big news services. They have to fact check you see. That's probably all I should say.

having a million isn't some impossible unattainable thing and having it doesn't make a whole world of difference, if anything it should be the other way around, if you're a poorfag you should be busy trying to make a living and maybe you wouldn't even have a computer to shitpost on, but if you have money you can afford to spend some time on Veeky Forums

Shall I go on?

You sound like one of those faggots who says "money doesn't buy you happiness." Well, money may not buy happiness, but it sure as fuck buys things that make people happy. And it certainty eliminates most of the things that make them sad.

Stop being such a salty poorfag. Money may not be everything, but its pretty fucking important.

@Firespawn

You're absolutely right. A hamburger tastes the same to rich and poor alike.

Except the rich person is eating that hamburger on his luxury yacht cruising the Caribbean with two girls half his age, while his portfolio is multiplying with no effort on his part, and he's doing it well into his 90's.

Meanwhile the poor guy is waking up a 5am to work the first of his two jobs -- one of which is to make the hamburgers -- and hoping that he makes it to 50 before his first debilitating illness.

But yes, they both enjoy their hamburgers equally.

Being poor sucks, no question.

Earning above $50k takes a strain off a lot of things, but you're still pressured by a job.

But whether you have 1 million as a retired Boglehead or 20 million as a successful entrepreneur or 500 million as a budding tycoon, your time is free to use as you wish and money has majorly diminishing returns.

Your point is a fair one, and I don't disagree that there's diminishing returns in terms of quality of life. At some point, you simply do have enough wealth to have the life you want and no extra money is going to change that.

However, there's at least two further considerations.

First, there's legacy. Whether its leaving money for your kids or grandkids, making political & social change happen, or simply donating major charitable gifts, the more the better. A $50K charitable gift can do good, a $5 million charitable gift can improves lives, and a $50 million charitable gift can change the world.

Second is risk. A millionaire may be able to make their life they want, but there's no guarantees they'll stay a millionaire. Plenty of 2007 millionaires were not millionaires in 2008.. By contrast, someone with $10 million is going to weather almost any storm, but they still have to be careful not to make too many mistakes. Someone with $500 million just needn't give a fuck. Come hell or high water they'll be passively making more than they spend, even if they actively try to fuck it up.

i'm 35 and i post on Veeky Forums. i have been here for 6/7 years and heard about it before that, but stayed away because i heard something about the cheese pizza project and thought it didn't sound wise to visit. i know other people in their late 30's who also visit or did years ago. there are some folks who drop their ages on /pol/ saying they are in their late 40s, even pushing 50.

i used to have a job, but sold my company several years ago. i mentioned it in a previous "billionaires on /biz/" thread and it became pasta, so i don't need to mention it again.
