I don't know about you guys, but I have tons of money.

Hey guys, what's up. Since it seems like the thing to do these days, I thought I'd update you guys on my financial situation.

Here is my reserve of emergency cash in my room:



I've been thinking about investing in some fireproof boxes for them, but I don't know if I can afford it.

Here is my main source of the moolah: my money pump system, which I have located in an outbuilding in the property.





Currently, my cash inflow is at ~452 gallons per hour (gph), whereas my outflow is at 397 gph, which is good. I had a major catastrophe last year when the inflow pump failed! We over 1500 gallons of money to that failure, a hard hit to take.

Of course, I like to diversify my investments, which means that I've also planted a few money trees. This is us at harvest time last year:



They grow best when watered with the sweat of underpaid factory workers, which I import from China.

I've also been trying out hedge funds, but I don't think that they are a very safe investment. It seems like they are being raided by people passing by.

Anyway, this is how much money I have. What about you?

You must live near Warren Buffett's house. Or, you live in Texas, where, according to one of our amazingly suckcessful forum members, anyone can get rich just by being there. Don't spend it all in one place...

Next you are going to tell us how many MBs you have bought with cash, and that if you cannot pay cash for any purchase (car, house, etc.), you cannot afford it.

You need to stop spending so much time in your motorcoach and start bragging about your investments!

How much did you pay for your money trees? Whatever it was it was probably too much, and I know I paid less for mine which are more productive than yours. My money trees don't have fold down rear seats for some reason I can't fathom, however.

MBs? Child's play! I have a fleet of Maybachs. Anything else is a compromise.

Really, the money tree is more of a hobby for me. The money pumps are what really bring in the revenue.

Do you absolutely need a cashier's check, or should I just send you my credit card information?

Actually I do not currently have an American dollar of any domination to my name. So I have at least one end of the American money accumulation spectrum amoungst members nailed down.

I usually clear the few American dollars if any in the filing cabinet out when our Canadian dollar dumps exchange wise. It has fallen off thirty percent in the last couple of years.

The newest Canadian bills are designed and from what I can see are going to be technically very hard to reproduce at home.

Plastic money has really arrived here. To me it is harder to handle but still leaves your hands at least as fast.. Actually physical money has been on the serious decline and becoming more so all the time. I like many hardly use it anymore.

Actually it is hard to compare our Canadian tons of money to Americans tons of money. Ours being metric tons of course.
