    ok I read Stuff

    Rich list revealed, with combined wealth of $60 billion | Stuff.co.nz
    What interests me is the comments at the end of the article.
    See I read the article and think F#@k he's done well for a tow truck driver or he had 55mill last year and now he's only got 60mill which he should if he had investments if not more.
    So who's wrong, the I hate rich people the "only way they could have got there is with family money" or the "F@$K he was just a so and so like me and look at him now, good on him"?

    there are some who have started at the moment and earned their money, other fed with a silver spoon. if someone works hard and does well good on them, NZ is shocking for tall poppy syndrome

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I say good on them to both groups (earned & inherited)
    Those that earned it deserve it - those that inherited it did not chose to.
    I will only judge them when I meet them. While im sure there are some rich assholes, I have met my share of poor ones too.
