    Hmmmm .... a little OT ... but ... the funny thing about being rich or poor ($ wise) ... everything is still the same really.

    The rich guy sits a home on a $50,000 designer couch watching a $20,000 plasma TV ... The poorer guy, sits at home on a $2,000 couch watching a $1,500 TV ... but they're still watching the exact SAME show ... LOL ;)

    The problem with being wealthy (stereotipically speaking) ... most time is spent ensuring your wealth ... protecting it and growing it! ... usually resulting in never attaining the most desirable wealth ... that the unwealthy typically have an abundance of ... good friends and an enjoyment of the simpler things in life. ;) Take that as you will ;) ... that's not saying having an economic plan in regards to retirement isn't a must ... It Is! ... that planned and achieved freedom certainly helps with enjoying those friends and those simpler things ... something I certainly look forward to ... just not at the expense of enjoying TODAY! ;)

    All that but no bomb shelter eh? I bet it is an undocumented feature of the compound.

    Hey, if billy gates really has no bomb shelter for his house, I don't dare to imagine what will happen to him if the army drops bombs on his house. :D
