Please Give Me One Million Dollars


six

Recommended Posts

So this kid Craig I've met a couple times at parties had the brilliant idea around Thanksgiving to shoot a video asking the super wealthy for a million dollars. Basically he's just asking for a million dollars, for no particular reason, no strings attached. The second I saw it I was kicking myself for not thinking of it first, because I know how fucking crazy the internet is and that he would probably get it. Well guess what, he's getting a fucking MILLION DOLLARS.

 

I know it seems like a gag, but my old roommate helped Craig write this and is getting $50K once the million dollars is received and he is over the moon right now. So they at least BELIEVE they are getting a million dollars. Crazier shit has happened, I give him props for actually succeeding at a wacky get rich quick scheme. I've included all of the videos below.

 

Thoughts WATMM?

If I were a billionaire I would give a million to someone if they asked. I would probably be like Warren Buffett who pledged to give 99% of his wealth to philanthropy during his lifetime.

 

So to all you rich people out there, give me a starting capital of a million, I'll make it grow and donate 99% of it to charity during my lifetime.

What's funny (and probably not surprising) is that i genuinely nearly did this exact thing roughly 6-8 years ago. Seriously. I was just going to make an amusing email or letter and maybe personalise it slightly depending on who i was sending it to, simply requesting a million pounds.

 

I actually thought of trying something like this ages ago, but never bothered making the video. Now it's too late. :mellow:

 

lol this is quite common it seems

 

There's probably a lot of pissed off people right now

I was hoping he would go into economics and make a point about how fucked up our economy is in America.

 

Check out this site on wealth distribution:

In the United States, wealth is highly concentrated in a relatively few hands. As of 2007, the top 1% of households (the upper class) owned 34.6% of all privately held wealth, and the next 19% (the managerial, professional, and small business stratum) had 50.5%, which means that just 20% of the people owned a remarkable 85%, leaving only 15% of the wealth for the bottom 80% (wage and salary workers). In terms of financial wealth (total net worth minus the value of one's home), the top 1% of households had an even greater share: 42.7%. Table 1 and Figure 1 present further details drawn from the careful work of economist Edward N. Wolff at New York University (2010).
