Is there really such a thing?

But seriously, I would hate for someone to try to tell me what I should do with MY money.

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.


Yeah, I can't agree on that point.

I would never grill my things just because I don't work for them. Don't throw us all in the same place. =.=


Lol... I'm not


If I were generalizing people, it would be written this way, "Those who never had to work for money like to burn valuables". My sentence was the other way around, "People who burn valuables are those who never had to work for money".

Hmm I guess you fail to see the artistic nature of what the guy did. Artists spend tons of money on materials in order to create something with little or no functional value.

I don't really care about people who do that since it's their money. If they volunteer to help the poor then more respect to them, however, they should not be hated for refusing to volunteer.

I find this thread kind of ironic as the majority of people with too much money have that much money because they are sticklers about their money and manage it wisely. There are also many false assumptions about the wealthy.

Also, as an artist, I'd agree that the reason of the video was lost by the OP. Sometimes a point made is worth much more than a months pay, especially if it can reach the masses.

The point of this thread wasn't to bash on he who uploaded that video, the point was to talk about people who have/waist money that could've been put into better things. But I have to admit I wrote my original post in a bad way that made people think that I was just talking about that video.

Also, I'm also a artist. I work with 3D in MAYA and Mudbox.

If the person is rich, he should use this for charity. Or anything that could at least help others rather than wasting money and showing the world how great he is.

Lmao even if u have too much, some have brain cells to make more from it, others waste it, like me am a millionaire at 22 and u know i want to make more, why would i waste it on crap lmao, money whether u have it given or earned its about knowing the value of it, long as u know how hard it is to earn 1 cent/pence u will love and look after ur money either way

People can do what they want with their money.

Would it be nice if, instead of buying up expensive trinkets that they don't need, people would donate some of that money to a charity, or invest it in poor children or some other universally beneficial concept? Sure it would. Lots of good people do that. But I won't expect it from anyone.

Do I think people who flaunt their money just because they can and who spit on the poor for being "inferior" are asshats? Yes, yes I do. But again, I cannot tell them what to do, with their money or their life. I can try to convince them, but ultimately, the choice is theirs and theirs alone. What I can do is ignore their stupid antics and refuse to give them the one thing in the world that they truly desire - attention.

A for this particular video, I don't see much of an issue with it. It was done to make a point, as others have said. Seeing all that money literally fried up like that is rather cringe-worthy, but that's exactly the reaction they wanted, and it achieved its goal quite well.

I think there is no such thing. If you have money it is most likely because you have earned it or your parents have, i mean my family is well off and its not like we do nothing all week, it comes down to the fact that parents work for about 12 hours a day 6 days a week. therefor i do not think other people have a write to tell us how to spent it or that we are wasting it.
