And honestly I think it would be more of a burden than anything to have all that money. I mean, when you're that rich, money takes over your life. You always gotta be checking on who's handling it, where it's going, etc. etc. All anyone really needs to suit their desires (nice house, garage full of nice cars, Jessica Alba as their wife) is like 100 million, and even that is more than enough.

Unless you're like eric2004bc and I and you want to buy a country. Then you might need some more. When I was in Tahiti I saw these nice little islands that people f**king OWNED. Yes, an island in Tahiti all to yourself. Awesome much? I'd shag my trophy wife on my own Tahitian island all day long. And after that I'd jump in the water and go surfing. Good lord that would be so f**king awesome!
Google "The World" islands, they are man made islands in the UAE, shaped like the globe, and people can buy their own "countries"

Also, Rockefeller, the #1 guy was a philanthrophist, dude donated a shitload of money and really helped out alot.

The others, well they were just greedy as shit.

I'd probably get tired of making more money after the first 100 billion dollars or so.

I'd still be a doctor or detective, but I'd invest all but like 1/3rd of a percent to charity, over several decades, so I could re amass a fortune and donate more. I was looking at things to buy and theres nothing I want that adds up to more than 5 million, so like 900 million is still way more than necessary.

Now that is rich. I would have to start a new mma venue with money like that. I would take care of the fighters and put on the cleanest shows like no other venue. Yeah I would loose some money but the fighters would be happy and that would draw the best fighters and with the best fighters come the mma fans so in the end it would work out for everyone.

I would keep every cent I could and treat people like my own personal live action Sims Game.

That would be sweet.
