    How much would you need to be able to say; "OK, I've made it, I'm rich!!"

    1 million isn't a lot of money these days, so I settled for 5 million.

    It is NOT how much you make, it how much you KEEP.

    You are correct.

    With the median income near $50k a year, in 20 years you will make a million.

    So anyone that picks a million will be broke in 20 years. )assuming they don't keep working, which beats the "I'm rich" idea(

    You can't keep what you don't have.

    Yanno..................250 grand would actually make me feel rich.

    Especially since I've spent all my adult life in the military and never made more than 38,000/yr.

    As long as I have enough to eat, a house to live in, a shower to wash with, a bicycle (and the ability) to ride, as well as enough for a couple extras like cable and internet, I'm pretty set.

    And even though I live on around 1,400 a month? I'm pretty happy, because I have someone who truly loves me and we share together.
