Curious to know your views

    I would play off the New York Yankees.

    Invest in putting diesel engines on stray icebergs.


    Or none of the above.

      If a person spends their time making posts like this, they can be assured of wasting so much time (as I'm certain this is a one and done) that they will never realize that dream, let alone make enough money to cover the cost of a happy meal.

      I'd say that I'm just as bad for responding, but I'm exactly 19 days away from my retirement party, so I don't care. lol

        I guess you are going to be well off during your retirement. The avg retired person never saved much during their life time, and some have to choose between a happy meal, and their meds...

        If you do not have hopes and dreams...
        You pretty much have nothing....

        So work until you retire, then realize
        you have less now, then when you were working....

        Some people even dream of find a better job, then
        they realize they will have the same dead-end job until
        retirement, if they are even lucky to have a job that long....

          "Well-off" is a relative term, but thank you, yes! Twenty days and counting. :-)

          Thank you, again.

          The problem with having hopes and dreams is that you're usually surpassed by the person who has plans.

            The only plans you've ever had were for dinner, well, dinner, lunch, breakfast, snacks, second breakfast, etc.

          Maybe not for you, but I have low expectations, including the remainder of my life span.

          It could be worse. I could be at the Waffle House.

      Since you didn't 'quote' anyone and I was the previous post, I'll assume, correctly or not, that your snide comment was directed at me.

      If so -

      I had something to say and said it without ambiguity.

      lol. Sorry Laurence. My post was directed at the OP. Even it the OT forum, these post drive me nuts. I WAS responding to your post, but my unambiguous negativity was certainly not directed at you. You have always conducted yourself as a 'prince among men.'

      It is I that probably should develop some better 'table manners.' :-)

      No offense intended.

      Thank you.

      P.S. Additionally, my post was pre-morning coffee. You'd think I would know better by now. That never ends well.

    I would open a vacuum cleaner store in Wooster next to The Sweeper Store. I'd sell my Riccars for $1 and would not stop until The Sweeper Store was forced to close its doors.

    Then I'd buy the bank that holds the store owner's personal mortgage. Then I would call the note.

    Once the owner was homeless, I'd use the rest of my funds to outbid him on any homes he tried to buy. If he attempted to rent, I'd buy the house from the owner. I wouldn't rest until his wife left him and he was living in a tent in some godforsaken field somewhere.

    Then I'd offer to buy him lunch. When he suggested, as he always does, that we go to The Green Leaf, I'd have my henchman shoot him in the stomach so he could feel the same pain I felt that last time we ate there.

    (Yes, I would destroy him because he was once responsible for me having a bad sandwich. But, hey, that's what billionaires do.)

      But then they wouldn't be poor so you'd have to take it back from them. That would make them poor again, so you'd donate it back to them, which would make them not poor again. And so on, and so on, ad infinitum.

    B.S. - more like the dreaming people do about how they will spend their lottery winnings...

    Learning "money management - investment" is understanding how to make your REAL income stretch to pay your real-life bills/expenses - and have some left over to invest for the future.

    Of course that's never as much fun as planning how to spend money you don't have....

    Most of my posts are crap, it seems that a lot here enjoy my funny remarks and understand humor, (as well as my other posts).

    I know that from the thanks, and PM conversations, and thread remarks l have got.

    At least others here can recognize nasty when they see it!

    And as others comments have shown, l am not the only one, getting annoyed by your constant verbal negativity!

    But if you are working towards your first ban, then......


    I didn't invent the frickin magnet, so if you are p****d then go to their Youtube channel, and make a statement!

    Others have made very colorful, negative statements there, so you should be in he majority?

    Notify the bank of their obvious mistake.

    This kind of question fascinates me.

    Let's change it from a billion to a million dollars. Why? Because some people actually have a million dollars. First you ask people who have little money...and then you ask people who have actually earned a million dollars the same question "What do you do with it?"

    And you see the stark difference in answers.

    Why? Because the people who aren't the millionaires would do things that spend the million...almost always very quickly, and the millionaires do things that increase the million

    Wealthy people usually don't think or act the way poor people think they do.
