    Unfortunately the last thread was wiped out in the crash but like our trust funds, this thread will flourish in the face of adversity.

    Let's limit posters in this thread to two categories:

    1.) High net worth - above $200,000 adjusted gross income, this should eliminate all but the top 3% of earners

    2.) Jealous assholes

    Wife just got a 15% raise today, company phone, eligible for profit-sharing bonus and annual raise of 2-3% assuming the company did well previous year.

    She is now a 6 figure earner, and while she can't post in this thread, her income will likely become discretionary/vacation money for the Linwood family.

    Raked in $280k in sales in May. Best month for me to date. Well ahead of last years pace when I brought home $1.24 mil. Fridge is stocked with Busch Light ready to celebrate.

    Retirement plan is gaining traction. Current plan reflects a dichotomy of investments...

    First part is our 401k/matching/stock options. We will each max out our 401k's at 18k/year x 2 = 36k (we cannot invest in Roths b/c our income is too high). Add in company match (mine is weak, hers is better) and stock options involving the ability to purchase company stock at a 10% discount, will add up to right around 14k. Add in our 36k plus the 14k = 50k/year.

    Second part is my investment account with select, personal stock purchases of my choosing. This will total 150k/yr. I plan on heavily beating the S&P on an annual basis but conservatively lets say I only gain 8% per year on average (the market has averaged 8% annual gain over any 15 year period in history). Total the 150k/yr from my investment account plus the 50k/yr from the first part of my plan and that = 200k/yr. At 8% annually I will retire with $24 million if all goes as planned.

    Most people think they can retire on a million dollars. They are sorely mistaken. If you had a million dollars at retirement most of it will be in bonds returning 2% per year. If you withdraw only what you are earning that = $20,000/year. Can you/Do you want to live on that in retirement? That is terrifying to me. Your prostatectomy alone will run you up 20k.

    For me I need to live the life I currently live plus I want the money to grow so that all the little Shocks will be living the good life as well. $24 million gives me great annual income and the lump sum will swell to $100 million + assuming I live into my 90's which I fully plan on doing. Imagine the look on Shock Jr's face when the lawyer reading my will says "And to you Shock Jr. your dad gifts you $100 million". Thats badass.

    We are self made. The Linwoods do not have a gilded lineage. We are hard workers though.

    With that said, I've worked hard for my money and achieved a great deal at a relatively young age.

    Never said she was excited. Just talking about the promotion perks.

    $100 monthly allowance = $1200/yr. Not much by any means but I certainly think it warrants mention.

    And yes she does get free coffee.

    If you think $100 a month "warrants mention" you probably shouldn't be posting in this thread you created. I'm pretty sure I run through $100 taking a piss in the morning.

    Its so fucking laughable to me that some people think shock is anything but a troll.
    He sits at his job at 7-11 and posts from his obama paid for phone and crys his lonely self to sleep each morning as he gets off his shift.

    The subtleties don't make up for the other 99%, which is shit.

    He's like any troll. His entertainment value doesn't warrant his shtick. But since he said "keep stirring", we'll all go out of our ways to read fully through his long, god awful posts hoping to find that one subtlety that makes it worth while.

    So again $200k is the top 3% of earners in the US.

    If I make the cutoff any higher we risk not allowing anyone in the thread besides the jealous assholes, of which we already have too many.

    We have to make the thread elite, but not so elite we have nobody to talk to.

    Not true. See examples:

    "Shock Jr, your dad leaves you $100,000,000, as you were his favorite child."
