    Becoming a billionaire takes away too many personal freedoms. I would rather not have to be accountable.

      The more you own, the more you are owned by your possessions.

    They also don’t want to be popular and good-looking MENSA members.

      As a good looking MENSA member, I can tell you that it’s highly over-rated.

    Everybody wants a billion dollars, but most folk know their talents limit their earning potential, and the majority with that billion dollar talent are too lazy to apply themselves. Personally, I am devoid of work ethic and ambition, so I retired at age 50 and never want to work again.
    Life is too much fun for all that stress!

      “Everybody wants a billion dollars.” – R-Clay.

      Really? Why? That is like saying that everyone wants a billion bananas.

      Why? Of what use are a billion bananas? You can’t eat them all. Their only utility is to give them away, and as quickly as possible.

      Other than giving it away, what is the use of a billion dollars? It has no personal utility.

    I don’t want to have a billion dollars of personal wealth, I would vomit looking in the mirror when I think of poor people. Even most billionaires really use millions in personal money, their billions is capital they control, a vote of confidence in directing it. I would like to be the guy who who can direct billions for the well being of everyone, but with personal wealth several million would do.

      Trust me when I say those poor people don’t give two sh*ts about you and wouldn’t care if you dropped dead.

        “those poor people don’t give two sh*ts about you ” – Hu Li

        Is that your justification for excessive personal greed?

        The society that exists, exists due to the actions we take.

        Your actions would produce greed, inequity, despair, and social destruction – crime and death, everything that is modern America.

        Your brain pan seems to be quite thin.

    What a bunch and fake and garbage viewpoints – for all you feeling you have, or may somehow get too much money – all you have to do is donate it all away – or send it to me, I don’t have even the slightest aversion to becoming wealthy…

    We’ll, I identify as a tech billionaire, have for years.
    I’m ready for my long overdue money implants.

    I know I never wanted to be a billionaire, nor a millionaire, and unfortunately I succeeded.

      Congratulations on your achievement, David! You are one of the few “successful” people posting. You knew early on what you wanted and worked hard to achieve your goal. Thus, your words carry wisdom we can all benefit from.

    “Currently, the world’s richest person has more than $200 billion in the bank.” Wrong! You lost me right there. It’s not in the bank, it’s not even realized. It’s tied up in stocks, which is a HUGE difference. Either the author doesn’t know the difference between cash in the bank, and the value of unrealized stock, or the author is being dishonest in the reporting. For those reasons…I’m out.

    Yeah. OK. I’d rather work my menial job in my non-chosen field and never own any nice personal property while worrying about only being thousands from homelessness. Uh-huh. Few things in life would give you the freedom of being “billionare” wearthy. The personal freedoms such wealth would bring would be stagering, who would really want that?

    I’m probably too lazy to become a billionaire. 10 to 20 million I’m out . My only reservation is one of those Super Yachts would be cool but I’ll survive.

    Money is power. Enough money – billionaire – is financial protection; for you & yours from the vagarities of the economy. I know poverty, & I know being at the whim of the economy. I’ll take billionaire any day of the week, twice on Sunday. Yes, I would work to increase my bank account – you never have enough. But I wouldn’t be trying to up the Joneses & I wouldn’t kill myself or deny myself the enjoyment of what I have. I’ve lived long enough to not make that mistake. So yeah, when can I expect the check? What? I have to WORK for it? Life is so unfair… 🙁

    Oh alright, if you absolutely insist, I’ll take it.
