  •  I don't want to be rich (9+ / 0-)

    I would like to be comfortable, but I would not need very much money to be happy.  I could do quite well on a LOT less than $250,000.  Less than half of that!

        if I had lots of money.

        But I get a thrill out of the small gifts I am able to give!

          treasure, in any amount.  I like to leave small piles of change here and there.

          The three biggest Big Things I would do if I were the richest man on Earth:

          1.  Found a new city from scratch dedicated to both pursuing and exemplifying education, social equality and opportunity, and scientific and technological advancement in every facet of its development, design, and operation.

          2.  Found a university in that city dedicated to same, with the greatest resources of any academic institution in the world, and steal all the best talent from all over the world.  

          3.  Found free K-12 schools throughout the country, many in poor neighborhoods, with curricula designed around the same principles as the city and university above, and designed to channel the best students to that university.
