Top 10 Signs None of Us Are Super Rich

From CNBC's show "Secret Lives of the Super Rich" . . . all of these are real.

10. You have a luxury shower ... just for your poodle.


9. Your megamansion has a 24-car garage. And it's stocked with Ferraris and Bentleys.


8. Your idea of a "pet project" is building an exact replica of the Titanic.


7. All of the moldings in your house are painted in 18-carat gold leaf "done tastefully."


6. When the apocalypse comes, you'll be safe in your own luxury survival bunker. Cost: $3 million, complete with a pool, arcade and pet park for passing the time during the end of the world.


5. You have a million-dollar taxidermy collection—in your apartment on New York's Upper West Side.


4. Your idea of listening to music is asking Lola Astanova, the stunning concert pianist, to play a little something on your living room grand. Or having members of the London Philharmonic provide the background music at your party.


3. Your bedroom carpet is copyrighted—so no one can ever have the same one.


2. Your idea of party decorations is to create an "upside down forest" hanging from the ceiling.


1. You drive to work every day in a gold-plated Lamborghini.

Or you're Warren Buffett, live in the same 3-bedroom house you bought in 1957 and drive a few-years old Caddy till it dies

The difference between Bling money and the Volvo driving millionaire next door money. Bling money screams, 'LOOK AT ME", while the millionaire who lives in a 1500 sq foot house and drives a Volvo says, "I don't really give a da** if you know I have money or not - as a matter of fact I would prefer you know NOTHING about my financial situation".

11. Your wife buys you a Mig from Poland and ships it to the states, than commissions it for a B day gift.

Yeah a friend of a friend seems to have married very well...

Is it legal to fly such a thing in the US? Planes need to be FAA certified, and this process is a bit more difficult than with a car

Old money and new, which is why people only still own cottages in Newport.



Their is a big difference between money and real money. Millionaire Next Door money and Rothschild money.

He is a pilot and apparently it is flying and air worthy. He also owns other things that fly, I know of one very nice helicopter they use to go from their roof in NYC to the Hamptons etc, and I'm sure a few jets.

I'd like to think that with the amount of bank we spent on the F-22, it can kick the butt of any MiG in operation today. Then again, who knows?

I'm not sure. Doesn't it spend the same?
