I agree. It seems to me that the too richest men in the USA (Gates, Buffett) don't enjoy their money, they are to busy trying to have the No.1 spot and trying to be all powerfull, and both, I believe can tend to be very stingy.
Hence, they have no toys.
But if your not even close to being No.1 and perhaps arn't that bothered about getting there, then you got out and buy three megayachts, your own boeing, a sea plane and maybe even a few restored WW2 planes.
Or something like that.
It cost 900 million to build the QM2, Mr Gates could easily have one of them.
