Wow I did not know that Rockefeller was the richest man of all time. I would have thought it was some dude from the Middle East who owns all that oil, but I was way off, most of the people on that list are from the U.S.

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!
