me too.  I've been reading his blog, every entry is like "arrived in country x today, tomorrow I think I'll fly country y...".  I can't believe I didn't cash in on the bubble, I feel left out. :(

I agree.  It's also interesting to hear him disparage others of privlige.  To clarify my position, I am a capitalist and think he likely won his wealth fair and square.  However, it's interesting to read his remarks about the capitalist system that provides for his fun and adventure.

If someone with no money criticises capitalism, they're just jealous of those who are successful.

If someone with money criticises capitalism, they're biting the hand that feeds them.

You can't win, can you? ;)

"You can't win, can you? ;)"

Sure you can.  Just give up your all money and material possesions.  Like they do in North Korea.

Phil, I want your airplane.

He's a schmuck, a rich one, but a schmuck.  He may have a dog and a lot of money, but I'll bet a woman wouldn't go anywhere near him.

North Korea is capitalist as they come. It just happens to only have one company, that is so powerful it has also taken over the powers that would normally be given to the government. To disguise this fact, it calls itself it government. ;)

Don't be jealous.  Be enterprising.  It's a better investment of your emotional energy.

No problem for women, you can get them with cash.
That's why capitalism is so cool.

Gimme some cash, I feel horny

Lawrence: Damn straight, always wanted to do that, I figure if I was rich I could hook that up because chicks dig dudes with money.
Peter: Well, not all chicks.
Lawrence: Well, the type of chicks that would double up on a dude like me do.
