    Anybody who has watched Wall Street 2 may have recognised the question.

    What’s your number? The amount of money you would need to be able to walk away from everything and just live happily ever after. Everybody has one, it’s usually an exact number so what’s yours?

    I thought it would be interesting to see the responses from you guys...

    There isn't a sum that would automatically lead me to want to walk away and be happy for the rest of my life. I'd rather carry on and try to earn a bit at a time.

    So if you were offered £7,999,999 to walk away from everything, you would turn it down?

    Actually, mine would probably be waaaay lower than that.

    I'd want enough to pay for my family, close friends and I to live comfortably.

    I'm a greedy *******. It would be in the billions.

    In all seriousness, probably 100 million. Enough to buy me any car I fancied at any time, enough to give to my family, and enough to have a house which is huge and in the country, away from my biggest dislike, which is the general population.

    No, but I would ask them to put it in a high interest account for a day before transferring it to my account.

    £10,000,000,000 ± £9,999,999,999.

    If I'm being serious, it would be about 10million.

    I don't think I'd live happily ever after just running down my funds.
    I'd rather have something to do with my life, something to achieve.

    But if someone offered me around 50 million I might reconsider :rolleyes:

    I need a coffee a day to be happy, assuming a cup costs £1 and I live 75 more years, 365x75 = £27.375 not counting leap years.
