But at least Kiwis don't get the opportunity to be anywhere near as irresponsible as Ted Turner with his billion dollar giveaway.

I dont think that irresponsible is how I would discribe Gareths move - I think that its a fantastic way to look at life, you dont have to die with the most toys or money to have won the game.

When you live your life on Twitter and Facebook, and are only friends with like minded people on Twitter and Facebook, you are not living in the real world. You are living in a narcissistic echo chamber.


My thoughts are my own and are in no way representative of my employer.

besides which, most people accumulate wealth/property/toys to hand-off to their children when they die... it's not like Gareth needs to think about providing for his now does it?!

Good on him, not what i'd probably do, but each to their own
