If you already had unlimited funds, why have life insurance?

You don't want to be worth more dead than alive!

For a real life example of eccentricities of someone with basically unlimited funds, Warren Buffett says the thing he likes best about being really, really rich is he doesn't have to work with anyone he doesn't like.

I guess his eccentricity is he still lives in the same house he bought in 1956.

Tom Cruise, goofy Scientologist / actor, has a P51 he flys:

This Mustang has a serial number of 44-12840 and was built in 1946. It was donated to the Civil Air Patrol unit and eventually ended up in a museum in Illinois. It was later completely restored by 1997 by Art Teeters and four years later was bought by Tom Cruise in 2001

My moat (think Mississippi River proportions) would be patrolled by IDF girls on tandem SeaDoos and in vintage Chriscrafts outfitted with frickin' laser miniguns by Dillon... Yep.

I guess at my age it'd be a hawt french maid with masseuse qualifications to handle "home needs", and a talented soux or head chef with both sommelier experience and unrestricted budget for my kitchen.

I would get rid of my cell phone. My people would have phones, but I wouldn't. I also wouldn't have keys, they would.

I would never pay another bill myself.

I would drive my asshole business competitors out of business.

I would tip massively for great service.

I would donate enormous amounts to worthy conservative charities, veterans charities, and children's hospitals like St. Jude's.

I would spread the gospel according to Freedman, Sowell, Hyak, etc. by establishing scholarships, fellowships, grants, etc in their names in defense of the free market and capitalism at every university in the country.

I would buy a big ass sailboat and sail it down to the Windwards.

I would become a member of Augusta National.

You guys just remember, it's more expensive being rich than it looks.

I would never wear a pair of socks more than once. Nothing beats new socks fresh out of the package.

I would buy a ton of land and re-create racetracks that aren't in the US. How cool would it be to have Spa, Mount Panorama, and the Ring all in one place. I'd also have a stable of Ariel Atoms to play with; enough to make them pretty much disposable. Of course, I'd also have to actually learn how to drive a race car, since I have no freaking clue how to.

The other thing I'd do is host free concerts on the lake. I'd throw enough money at my favorite bands that they'd have to come play and have a big floating barge/stage setup for them.

I'd buy Montana. And kick everyone out.





Hedley Lamarr: Wait, wait, wait. I'm unarmed.
Bart: Alright, we'll settle this like men, with our fists.
Hedley Lamarr: Sorry, I just remembered . . . I am armed.

You and Jerry Lewis. Although his habits may have something to do with the tax write-off, donating once-worn clothing.

seems that there is a nation wide back log of rape kits in evidence rooms, that are not being tested , because of financial circumstances.

might be sweet to see sixty or eighty cases get solved , but pronto.





Safety, Situational Awareness and proficiency.

I'd buy a nice big sailboat head out the Golden Gate into the Pacific and never look back.

I'd donate an annual amount to help our veterans, Stanford Children's hospital and St.judes childrens hospital.

Oh and I'd hire a few capable people to clean up some of the political trash that infects our nation Wink
