Heck, if you save 120K per year and work for 2 years, you can basically retire to places like Thailand and live like a king.

On $250k in investments, you could only sustainably withdraw $10k per year. That's not even $1k per month. That's upper middle class in Thialand, which is not exactly kingly.

Yeah but you're living like upper middle class in Thailand at age 24 with no responsibilities in OP's scenario.

Ok, fair enough, not a king. To me it'd be kingly, but I guess I feel like a king quite quickly.

Just me? Ah, alright.
