I just found this video on Youtube where a idiot grills a Mac Book Pro and a Galaxy S5, the only thing that pops up in my head while watching that video was that some people have too much money (apparently his made other videos like that one).

So my question is, what do you think about people with too much money for their own good?

Do you think there's a better way for people with a overload of money to use them?

It disturbs me how stupid some people can be with their overload of cash since he could've spent that money on better things such as helping the poor.

If you want a link to the video then here's the link https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ddEVXW2xzJc

I believe ppl who do that are those who never had to work for it...

ppl who worked hard for their money usually are not wasteful with it...

It has nothing to do with having too much money, it simply is a matter of people not respecting their things. I could easily afford to do this but never would.

Is it weird that I just got hungry from seeing words "grill" and "mac" in the same sentence? :3

It's not people who have too much money, it's people who never had to earn that money.

What's the difference between a poor person and a rich person?

The former knows exactly what's in his bank. The latter couldn't, because the money fluctuates.

It's weird to see high paid celebrities still getting well-expensive gifts or free items.
Chris Rock mentioned that he could just walk into any restaurant, eat, and leave without paying. Why? The reason is his "endorsing" the actual restaurant. He's a big star.
On the other hand, when Kevin Hart does the same thing, he's just dine-n-dash. He's just hot, not big. Hot.



Anyways, watching a local news makes me sad. I see reports where a poor person robs another poor person. It should be poor person robbing a wealthy person. Even if that poor person succeeds robbing another poor person, for what? He's just surviving. The latter guy has to survive even harder.

It's better to strive in this life than just to plainly surviving it.

I just finished serving my jury duty. We had to nail a crooked cop. A cop that supposed to protect the defenseless and weak. But, no, he had to succumb to use his position and stole people's identity just to have his "cheap and easy" thrills.

Who is our today's Robin Hood?

Who is the rich one that would make contributions or donations without doing a publicity stunt?

Does it take a prior experience in order to decide and establish an awareness foundation? If it never happens to that person, but it's [illness] already known to public, would that "so-called" wealthy person would even act?

So you assume that he personally bought them? I half-suspect that he's endorsed by the electronic companies to do all that, particularly since he has product giveaways. They probably send him the electronics, free of charge.

I see quite a few generalizations on this thread, already. Who knows for certain how every individual rich person treats their money, fame, etc...?

Also, you (most of us) live in a glass house, if you want to knit-pick. "Poor" people may waste just as easily, and plenty do.

It isn't about being 'rich' or 'poor'. People who do this aren't given any of my attention, waste of time to pay attention to people that stupid.

It's their money lol--even I spend lots of my income on things that don't necessarily help the world.
I just bought an extra Kirisaki Chitoge Nendo to put in my car. =\

I have always grown up surviving from paycheck to paycheck. Until this last year I could fit all my possessions in a 2 suit cases...the thought of people doing stuff like that with expensive things irks me. I have even lived in a third-world country for a while were people had even less than I did...and there is better stuff that people can do with old possessions or abundant money. That being said, I do believe that if you work for something you appreciate it more and the philosophy: "What is achieved easily is esteemed lightly" is very true.
