Ok, some of us might think that they are desperately poor. Some might think they are rich... Truth ? We all are very rich !

My family is rich but I have to work for the money in my pocket. Supposedly to make me value money or something stupid like that.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: they always say that don't they? here's how you get 'em back. get a hold of nasa. tell them you want to purchase a satellite and have them charge it to your father. in order to avoid embarrassment, he'll pay. but after that, he'll think twice before telling you you can't get your trust fund raised. :)

I'd rather charge a home in Malibu to my father :lol: It sucks... I have a crappy job and I have people talk down to me all the time and it could so easily be different if only I didn't have Scrooge as a dad. Anyway... I'm studying Law... I'll have his money off him if it kills me (or him haha) trying.

I'd use the money to buy me nice clothes and a nice car and a nice house and the same for some of my friends and I'd give money to help animals and really really poor people and there's not much I can do for world peace.

I'd make a good Miss World.

I am on unemployment right now, but I would not care. No rush to choose the job, because these days it is really getting closer to choosing rather than finding it.The IT job market is really getting lively.

A shitty 3 bedroom house with a tiny kitchen... a living room with not enough room to swing a cat... a yard not big enough to even let a dog run around in and 1 bathroom can cost £200,000 ($300,000) in the UK

Go to the US and for $200,000 (approx £130,000) you can get a 3 bedroomed spacious house with an amazing kitchen... a huge yard complete with swimming pool... a couple of living rooms and at least 3 bathrooms. It would cost you over a £1 000 000 for something like that in the UK.

HA! i dunno what area of the US youre talking about, but it must not be referring to the nyc metro area or cali.

the south has cheap prices, but i can assure you 200,000 in NJ wont get you much more than a small two bedroom house with one bathroom and little property. the further away from a city or major resource you are, the cheaper the land.

well im in the south near London.....we're looking to move into a house that's worth £392,000. convert that into dollars, and see what kind of big luxurious shit you can by in the US with that :)

not all of us are globetrotting nomads. i love my house. my old folks got it for a bargain: $186,000. the really swank joints near Lantana go for about $300,000.

it's pretty nice, too...five bedrooms, two and a half baths...big back yard. right next to the high school. pretty cheap. although we'll probably never be able to sell it ;)

well ys, some of us want to settle down someday and have a few deucedgadgets :p running around so home and hearth is eventually what we concentrate on.

"Someday" sounds good. When I am 50, I will probably think about something like that. Or maybe I'll be dead by then. Bu if not, I might want something like that too. But not in the city, or in overpopulated crapland like NJ, but somewhere up there in mountains, where air is clear, spirits are high, money is nothing and bad people are rare. Otherwise, by the priceless words of Tyler Durden, "Things you own end up owning you". Thanks, but no thanks. I don't want to be attached to a piece of land and have my god's given freedom compromised by that.

SJW, the price you mentioned would buy you this size house in NJ perhaps a bit bigger, but you prolly wouldnt get a big backyard with it since thats a rarity in overpopulated NJ.

my house itself is SMALL but we own two wooded lots, one behind us and next to us, and were the only people in our neighborhood with trees left :rolleyes: if we were to ever sell it wed get a pretty penny cos of our land alone.

i'm sorry. i didn't mean for it to come out that way.

it's cheap-o since we're more than 20 miles from downtown Dallas. I assure you that it's absurdly expensive to live in the city. so i'll be bitchin' 'bout my rent when i finally move my lazy ass out.

that does sound lovely.

the developers have destroyed just about every inch of wildlife for three square miles around my house. to see any trees is a real rarity.

that's one thing i noticed in NJ...noone has a front yard.

well I was poor all my life and I'm still poor. :wavey:

Yes I got free lunch in school and yes my lights have been cut off more than once in my life, yes we have run out of gas in the middle of the street before....just all the fun little things for us poor welfare people. Oh wait, my mother worked two jobs when all this stuff was happening. Oh well, thus is the life for the working poor of these great states....

Oh and i make more money now than my mother ever did but with no house and no kids I get hammered by the IRS promptly reducing my income down to a minute amount. :eek:

My parents are well off...but I'm dirt poor but very fortunate that my parents are paying for my education. Some of my other friends are about 3 years away from drowning in their own debt :( (Thank you very much, University of Toronto! :p)

I've got something that I once read on a T-shirt, to inspire me:
"If you think getting an education is expensive, try ignorance"

I think that richness is in the soul. I love going out and doing all sorts of things, so I feel very rich.

Financially... :rolleyes: I'm not all that rich...but you know what?! I've got a place a live and I've never gone (too) hungry...I think I'm very fortunate. :)

I have no reason to complain. The house I grew up in is rather big, nice garden, nice area, nice design (love our new kitchen). I'm a PhD student now, finished my MSc two years ago, no debts. I'll start my first loan sometime next month to buy a two bedroom apartment in a very nice city. I'll be renting it out at first as I live in a different city now. The rent should cover the debts.

wow, i remember times like that back in the day. we used to be really poor too, even with moms working two jobs.

one time we lost everything. we had some tough times, we lost our apartment, our car, most of our furniture......we had to move to mexico with my grandparents for a while, till my mom could save up enough money for a new apartment (she worked in san diego and we lived in Tijuana)

those were some tough times, but we got through it. thank God for our family, if it wasn't for them, who knows what would have happened.

Am I rich? Yeah of course, I have the 2 Rolls-Royce situated in the marble driveway oppisite the Country Estate behind the Tennis Court.

If only :cool: :o

My family has always worked with money or around money, Dad works for Trading Ministry, Mum is on leave but was one or several ecnomic negotiator for HSBC Geneva, semi-retired now, They bought in reasonable income, comparable with the high price of living in Geneve.

As for me I'm going to enter the "working class" but Im just average, If I ever needed money I could always count on Papa and MaMa
