    more money, different types of problems... like who you leave it to in the will or who's campaign to contribute to as opposed to "what can I buy to eat for today with $3.74?"

    I hear you're pretty well off nowadays.

    Could you add me to your will?

    I don't bother pondering wills... when I die I want for there to be a reality television worthy fight over my assets just so that I can watch it later wherever or whatever I am

    I've never had enough money for it to be a "problem". If I did, I don't think I'd be particularly extravagant or do something that just entailed a more complicated life or more bills and maintenance. Life would improve, but I'd still keep it simple.

    Disagree completely.
    Ditto.

    Apparently more relative wealth makes you happier up to a point and then it sort of plateaus. I don't see any evidence that it ever actually hurts to have more money.

    Bolded = Less problems. Best pick when you completely put your ego aside - which is almost impossible anyways, so don't worry much about it. I believe that, given the chance, most people would be as greedy as they could be.

    I don't think greed was the issue.. Or was it? I just thought it'd be problematic if you bought a lot of unnecessary crap. Do I really need a 40 room mansion? No, I don't. Too much work. So I wouldn't buy one if I could pay for it anyways.
