    You don't "go out and earn" the type of passive income it takes to get to even 10 million+. No work for pay job, even the highest paid CEOs don't earn that much on salary.

    Usually it's done with royalties or with automation and you have to be at the very top. Just like Bill Gates.

    So short of that, and I'm sure you'd be breaking the "prime directive" by doing so upsetting the balance of power and all, just go ahead and ship me some livestock.

    That should fill my help needs just fine. Send a chicken too, i like to watch them run around the road. My neighbors may get jealous and it could start a neighborhood war, but i can worry about that later. Thanks so much!

    Oh, and don't forget to brand it with that Microsoft hot brander poker thing either.

    So what? 

    Folk have started from nothing and managed to claw their way to the top, without any help from anyone.

    Don't be so quick to assume that everyone spends their time crying over what other folk have got. Some people get off their chair and go get it themselves.

    That assumes they valued the results of a good days work, long term planning & delayed gratification for the short term thrill of just %(&#ing all of the time.

    Fortunately, this level of self-delusion is mercifully rare.

    Edit: Say Beernutz, it's funny you commenting on my link to UrbanDictionary... as I have it on good authority you yourself linked to that very same page back in 2011 to justify your own arguments. What then does that say about your 'first point of reference'?

    Again Chris, you have too much history here. Us long timers know you, your history and issues far too well to let you escape them... why then return so much to a place that can so easily remind you of your need for help?

     

    Hang on.

    This isn't the same chap who falsified a Wikipedia entry so he could win an argument, is it?

    Now, whatever happened to that fella ... Expressionless

    *sigh* Once again thread ruined. Time for a break Chris. See you after Christmas. Go wrap some presents and enjoy time with friends.
