Silly, rich people don't drive cars, their chauffeurs do. Home, jeeves.

Actually, every time I hear about anyone talking about blowing a hundred grand on a car, I think "wow, I could spend $20K on a car and hire a driver for two years!" I mean, nice cars are nice, but a driver? that'd be real luxury. It's also got a better justification; I mean, if you drive a lot, with a driver, those could be billable hours!

I mean, if we are going to talk about ridiculous fantasies of wealth, that's mine.

But when you have that much money you can do both. After seeing what rich people (I mean really rich, not investment fund rich) will spend money on I really think most people are just mentally shut off from what a billion dollars means.
