Being secretive about wealthGuest-4 wrote: ↑1 month ago I wouldn't want to risk my privacy, so I'd try to live the a lifestyle comparable to that of the more fortunate people in my life. Those who received a lot of money from the parents, who married wealthier spouses, etc. By staying within those parameters, my privacy would remain secure. I wouldn't want people to know that I'm secretly rich. I'd make sure that my savings are secure, probably by splitting them up into different countries and locations, and different asset classes.
Virtue signalling about changing the world for the better so all can see hereGuest-4 wrote: ↑1 month agoI'd help my family in specific ways, such as paying off their mortgages, and paying for the summer camps and daycare of my youngest relatives.
I would get involved with some charities at the volunteer level, so that I could learn more about them, and one day make a more competent decision of who to donate to. I'd mostly focus on charities that help kids, both here and abroad, that get them food, some adult supervision and mentorship, toys, et cetera. For example, there's a martial arts gym near me that gives poor kids/teenagers free lessons if they show that they're doing the homework, and they have volunteer adult tutors there who help them with their homework. I'd look into them, and if they were doing well (probably), I'd donate some money.
Humble and stingy and using a mysterious ungooglable photographer "artist"Guest-4 wrote: ↑1 month agoFor health, I'd sign up for a 30-day medically supervised water-only fast. That's expensive, but it has a good chance of helping me and my issues.
For my personal life, I'd move into a better apartment, with more space, nicer furniture, and a nicer kitchen. I'd get a home gym so that I can work out more easily. I'd want a nicer car, but not an amazing car. Think one in the $30,000-$40,000 range. I would place some nice art in my apartment. For example, I'd like a large print from the photographer Philip Mengelsen. I'd buy all my clothes from Italy. I'd stop folding my own laundry.
Jerusalem eyGuest-4 wrote: ↑1 month agoI'd go on two genuine vacations a year. As in 10-14 days at a time, not flying on the shittiest airline that makes three stops, and then really tuning out everything and focusing on the vacation. For example, 10 days at a ski resort sounds incredible. Skiing is a very challenging, and very expensive, but also a very beautiful sport. I'd like to go to places like Rome, Casablanca, Kyoto, and Jerusalem, and see as much of their history as I can. It is only be spending significant time in a place that one can really know a place.
Those things are readily available if you aren't confined to box apartment liberal shit holes (but I'm not encouraging you to move away and spoil other states with your vote)Guest-4 wrote: ↑1 month agoWere i to have children, I'd want them to have some of the things that are great for growing up but are now becoming out of reach to many middle class families as our society declines. That means a home with fancy food, with pets, with access to green space, with trips to sleep away camps, and with opportunities for lessons in music, dance, art, swimming, tennis, etc, whatever they ended up liking. I'd limit their access to digital screens. Kids are now growing up on screens, and thus necessarily reading less and doing fewer sports, because the screens are addictive, and because parents have little time since they are being strained in every direction. I'd have the resources to lessen that strain. My wife would have the option of working less if she wanted it.
And even the suggestion of this feminist bullshit of letting a wife stay working while you have practically infinite wealth instead of insisting she nurtures her children = pointless and intentional destruction of the nuclear family
Even quora still leaves up questions about how woke propaganda Netflix is you're a parody of yourself
I find it absolutely bizarre how much thought you put in to this. And you actually think money will go a long way to making you happy.Guest-4 wrote: ↑1 month agoMoney doesn't buy happiness, but it goes a long fucking away. It helps neutralize or eliminate those threats that can hamper happiness, such as economic anxiety, insecurity, inability to maintain one's health, et cetera. Eliminating those is helpful, but it's ultimately important to be able to remain challenged in life, and to overcome challenges. I would definitely still keep working, but I'd do so with a longer-term view, focused on a smaller number of greater challenges.
And you become a Guest which is ridiculous generally, so as a standpoint that you're definitely no longer affiliated with this site, ok that's bad enough.
...but then you just post again anyway?! As if nothing happened? It's just shameful.
