I can see after a while it getting to the point where you can buy anything you want.. with $2.5 billion that means ANYTHING.. after that, what's left? I would love to give it a try though.

He is unhappy with his life? Maybe he should have thought a little bit more about where he was going to live. Seriously, a 23,000 square foot mansion in Beverly Hills? That was his first mistake! Just ask Jed Calmpett!!

I'm sure I could be happy with 2.5 billion!

I think it would be fun giving some money to random people in public places. It would probably take a long time for that to get old.

Everyone already knows that money doesn't make you happy.

Arguably you have fewer things to worry about but all of a sudden you have many more things to worry about and much higher expectations.

So, no if you're miserable now, you'll be miserable with more money.

Everybody knows money cannot buy you happiness. But it can, according to David Lee Roth, buy you a yacht big enough to pull up along side of it.

Money doesn't buy happiness but it sure can make misery a lot easier.

Money can't buy you love. But with $2.5 billion, who needs love? I'd be drooling over all the good times I could just rent!

He doesn't sound depressed, he sounds bored. It's a life changing event and he's not sure where to go from here, give it a few years and he will find something to do. Until then there's hookers and blow I guess...

I'm happy now and putting money in savings every month. $2.5 billion won't make it better.

Kinda like the Chris Jansen song.... "It would buy me a bigger boat, and that's a good start" !

Would also buy me a place on the water to park it :-)
