    Oh he's got a clue. He's got more than a clue about all of us. I'm pretty sure he's reading this thread right now.

    They’re divorced and she got like $50bn and married a gym teacher. She’s already given away more money than Uncle Jeff has.

    Definitely not crazy about the guy, but a little disturbed about the idea that someone needs to answer to the masses over how to spend his wealth.

    The net effect of Amazon might not be what a majority approves, yet it is that same majority that is putting the cash in his pockets.

    So the guy chooses to spend a tiny fraction of his dough in a stunt to promote his brand of orbital delivery systems, you know an entrepreneur doing his ego thing. I'm guessing this has become a terrible thing these days.

    Working in the space coast and seeing first hand how private companies like Blue Origin, Spacex, and several others are lighting a fire under the over-bloated government funded space program and forcing dead-wood filled tech giants like Lockheed, Boeing, and even NASA itself, having to scale back in tax payer money waste, that in itself is monumental. It would have never happened otherwise.

    Now don't go accusing me of anything, I love the Junior high dick jokes as much as the next guy, but no matter how low you are in the totem pole, as long as you are a first world citizen with disposable income, you could be using your strat money, motorcycle money, vacation money, to feed someone in need or any other of a huge list of worthy causes. So while everyone is feeling so self righteous crucifying some rich idiot, see if you can take a look in the mirror and tell yourself "nope, there is not a damn thing I can't do to make this world a better place".

    I have no problem with people making lots of money. I don’t like it when people are irresponsible with money.

    Not sure. Forbes is not a site I'd normally visit. 1 is bad or do they have a zero in their ratings?

    I personally loathe unchecked capitalism.
