Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Ah well, maybe next time.
Same here, I know I would have been SO good at it.

I was thinking about this the other day - and I wondered, can a person without a history of being rich, actually comprehend that size of figure.

I include myself here - I honestly don't think I could look at my bank account, see 166,000,000 as the balance* and actually comprehend what that means in real terms.

I think the only way for me would be to have a financial advisor, put it away somewhere, and have (x) amount of the interest or whatever transferred to me every month so that I still budget and plan etc and then 'forget' about the big figure.

*Yes, I know you wouln't do that, but you see my point.
