    I can't wait for the tongue-in-cheek title of this to get taken completely out of context by people who don't read the context before reacting. I mean, literally, I can't wait, it'll already be happening as you read this.

    Why not? Because thats expensive, and most billionaires seem oddly cheap. Probably comes from prestige not being as economically or politically important as it once was.

    At this stage in society, I'd rather the rich spend it on ecological projects that will benefit no one but their (rich) eyecandy, stroke their ego (status), and lastly, nature. Instead of social programs.
