If you are very very rich

Thank you for sharing everybody. I really look forward to talking about more topics.

since im divorced, if i had lots of money i would marry 4 women put each one in a separate house and spend the rest of my life a happily married man,,,

Hahahahahaha so tell me again why you got divorced? Since you couldn't handle even one wife so why you are sure you could handle four of them. Wrong answer :P

:D

what will you do with al your money or property?

A very old topic, but what does age matter?

I used to be a very "Things" person; big TV, fancy hifi and all the other rubbish TV adverts tell us are essential.
I woke up one morning, both from sleep and from the mind control advertisers try to keep us controlled by, realising we don't actually need all that rubbish at all.
I realised I used my portable radio most of the time, hardly ever turning the hifi on, so bye bye hifi.
I realised I never watched live TV, so when it came to licence time I cut the aerial coax and didn't watch any more live TV. Not long after that, I realised I used the portable DVD player far more than the big TV, so bye bye TV.
I have a TV now, but it's for the wife and the larger of my monsters so I very rarely watch it.
I have a car because I have a family and other transport would be a problem, but it only gets about 1,000 km per month on the clock, much to the amazement of the service dudes.

My only 'stuff' consists of my computers and cameras, all things I want for my hobby, pleasure, communications and entertainment.

Returning to the question and fat sacks of cash.

For my family, I'd buy a large house, send my kids to the best school and get whatever my wife wanted.
For myself, not a lot past and tech gear I fancy for the reasons above, and I still have a portable DVD player, so no TV for me.
School holidays would see us jetting off to foreign lands, staying in hotels with swimming pools. I like a little pampering from time to time, one of my very few vices (I can't mention most of the others)
A car? No, I like the one I have and see no reason to change it.

The trick is not to get rich,  but to remain rich! In this case I wouldn't get married...

I agree.....and it's not just female spouses who suck their partner's bank accounts dry!

Yeah, I didn't realize how old a thread I replied to until after I posted. Anyway, great post Fred!

lovely topic.. I just stumbled upon that and mmmmm

if I were very, very rich I will build a huge factory that makes enough food to feed the whole world for free and a school that trains awesome special teachers with excellent hearts and manners and sends them around the world to spread both knowledge and love fixing both the human mind and heart of the masses...

orphans, crisis victims are only a by product of the real problem in my opinion..  the real thing lies in the hearts and minds.. people need to learn to care and love more.

this is by far, my fav. answer to the topic.. hats off Fred. 😊

I will do many things , I am in love with money it sparkles our life . I am satisfied with my life but if I am rich I will feel more secured and don't need to be worried about tomorrow .
I will certainly do a project where I can employ hard workers who are looking for their living and turn them to be owners of the project .
Basically I will be happier cause I will be able to make others happy and minimize their worries about tomorrow.
Nice topic , I like what you wrote both Ziad and Fred and wish you to be rich to make others happier
My regards

Many people feel money is the source of a happy life. Money is necessary, useful but more and more money does not bring happiness.

Thank you Wafaa.
what do you do?

Mohammad Na, I agree with you that money is not the source of happiness although the media these days push towards the exact opposite.

I say money is a tool and like any tool its impact depends entirely upon how you use it.. if you have a screw driver in your hand you can use it to fix things or to smash them.

So again, I agree with you but I still think that money, like anything else, can and must be used to make a difference.

Peace, light and happiness.
