Hmm..so I have $4m and I take a huge risk by walking away from $200k ? Takes a man of true courage.


The rich can afford to take risks.


The rich can't afford NOT to take risks.


Hey, I like risks too even though I have a negative net worth.

Give me a 51% coin flip for $100 and I'll flip till I go broke.
