    Would you want people to know (I don't mean necessarily like Donald Trump, although that would count as a 'YES" if it would be your desire) I meant would you want to have articles written on you, Forbes listings etc? Or would you prefer utter secrecy?

    With the internet and so much access to information today it's hard to stay out of the press if you have a net worth of $1B or more. The Forbes list is usually compiled from SEC data and other public records. It's near impossible to escape the press and investagative journalism today.

    I would want all the 18-25 year old hotties to know, but wouldn't want others such as IRS to know. I know, that's too much to ask for isn't it?

    Not sure it's possible once you cross $20 million. But no, I wouldn't want anyone to know.

    Being famous certainly has its advantages, i'm sure, but if i were in constantly in the public eye, i could definitely see myself getting in trouble with the papparazzi...

    Everyone in town would know I was from my car collection and because I'd do weird stuff like wear scuba gear everwhere I went. But other than that I wouldnt want the whole world to know me.

    I wouldn't declare it, but people pick up on things like... "so... there's this guy that comes by for coffee every morning --usually 6AM-- and he's always driving a different car; the f2002 f1 car; black enzo; silver carrera GT; mclaren F1; and so on. Oh, and he's got a nice watch, and he's real shy, too"

    Am I in trouble?
    It's a joke. You know how every once in a while, a webforum gives birth to a "...check out my girlfriend, you guys think she's hot...?" thread? Well, inevitably, you'll get a batallion of leg-humpers lobbying, pleading, whaever for nude photos (i.e., nudes); my avatar, is a play on that "phenomenon." If you will.

    PS: I hate cats.

    Well, since the first thing I'd do is buy the Dodgers, everyone would know all about me. I'd be the Mark Cuban of major league baseball - fine me as much as you want. Yeah, I know the Dodgers just got a new owner (finally) but until he fires the GM and gets someone better, it ain't doing the team or us fans a damn bit of good. A once proud organization...

    I almost just wet myself.

    I like how a question about being rich degenerated into kitty cat, and masturbation jokes. LMAO
