Nah man, just by getting debt free I've opened up a world of possibilities my peers don't have (age 26). I'm not tied down to a job because I don't /need/ the money, I'm free to travel whenever I want, I'm able to turn my hobbies into a full on business opportunity, and I'm much less stressed.

I see my peers wasting their income on interest payments, fast food every meal, and foolishly expensive cars. It's gotten annoying because they're all broke all the time and can't go out and do things.

I've thought about this. To be honest, I don't know if I could have been responsible had I - at a younger age, say, 18 - suddenly had a million dollars or something.

If your parents had educated you about money you easily could have. I know a few wealthy heirs and heiresses and if they're old money they're usually really good about not squandering their wealth.

New money, especially first generation... they're the people blowing $26k in a night at nightclubs and bragging about it on peasant social media.

You honestly may as well never make it. History won't care about you either way.

True, that. My parents raised me well, and I'm sure they would have if we were significantly richer.

That said, yeah, new money is fucking obnoxious.

False.

Quality of aging is mostly dependent on genetics. You can't make yourself age any better, all you can do is make it worse by engaging in a life of alcohol, hard drugs, and UV radiation.

It's not about being, it's about doing.

You shouldn't care about "making it" while you're still in your 20s, most of the people who make it at that time actually got lucky, and they happen to drop out of prestigious schools like Harvard, not the shitty community college in your town.

What matters is making it, no matter how old you are. But the early you start working towards said goal the better.

Not that impressive imo. Now if you're annual salary is $250k as well then I would say you're well on your way to making it.

The definition of making it is always relative to other people, not an absolute value.

You CAN still enjoy being wealthy later in life. Just stay in shape and you can still FEEL physically young, even if you do look like a wrinkled bitch.

@Fuzzy_Logic
Surely, but we shouldn't be wholly saddened by not being able to be wealthy (relatively speaking) while we are young. Rather, we should, at the very least, remember that the standard of living experienced by our lowest classes trumps that of many of histories kings.

Stop with this fucking meme. A king perhaps didn't have a flushing toilet and a smartphone but at least he had a huge estate - something the lowest classes today don't.

The world also adjusts to the times - housing and living expenses follow the average, meaning lower classes will always have a shitty life - no matter the year.

This.

Also:
Being a king: (sex)slaves, guards, wealth, power, but high odds of dying young or living with pain
and if you mess up someone's gonna behead you (often from close family)

Being poor now: Longer life expectancy, videogames, shower, but you need to be a wageslave without the chance of living like you want one day.

its the classic money usually disappears by the 3rd gen

1st gen works hard to give second gen means to make make money
2nd gen has been taught about money and knows how to save/spend well
3rd gen isnt taught something and blows it

atleast ive heard this idea thrown around
