Fifty billion dollars


My superior on this mission sits next to me. For some reason she began talking about what she would do with 50 billion dollars, were she rich like Bill Gates or Warren Buffett or Ingvar Kamprad.

She said her lifestyle probably wouldn’t change. She and her husband don’t value material things. They already have a nice house in a nice neighborhood. They have what they need.

I said I would hire a private army and begin overthrowing foreign governments and confiscating their wealth. This way, I would have a nice little fiefdom set up when the Martian Empire decides to begin running things more overtly on this planet.

I smiled so she thought I was kidding.
