Go anywhere around the world, and i bet you'll find that most people above the age of 45 have either been working for one company for decades or retired without going for "greener pastures" just for the sake of job security. working till the age of 60 and then retiring is usually the norm. After that..well nothing, just sitting at home..the least to be done with the money is probably growing a vineyard to brush off the guilt from blowing all the money on those countless nighttime marauding at Bars and nightspots trying to be young and hip.
What's funny is that some people don't even get the chance to spend their money at all, they tend to die just die one or two years before retirement and the beneficiaries end up enjoying their fruits of labor. It might sound unfair, but the proof is in the pudding. What do you expect? you bust your ass off for thirty-some years working for one company, and what do you have to show for it? a dance with Lucifer, while your in-laws continue to hurl sand on your six feet deep grave.
Greed has always been a trend ever since money was introduced to people. People have killed for it, people have died for it, economies have collapsed because of it.I comes with the territory. So who are you to think you are going to spend it, thirty years from now? last time i checked people still get killed by cars, illnesses, plane crashes and what have you, everyday!!!
Now I'm not saying it's bad to invest, but it's what you can do with a portion the money that counts for me. Like going to the far side of the world, seeing the seven wonders, going to Hawaii, having sex in the Himalayas,see the wide open spaces,run around butt naked in Tahiti, at least you'll have a story to tell, and still make it in time for the season finale of heroes!
