    a) I'm 'looking to' be the world's greatest sex God. Is it going to happen? No.
    b) How many of your clients know your TSR username? How many people are going to pass on that information to your clients? Zero (if what you say is true...)
    c) Less competition? You do realise that for every single one of us realists in this thread, there are a million other deluded fools like you?
    d) You sound like a pretentious arse. 'I hate the predictability of the 9-5 grind'.... give it a rest. You do realise that if you ever do become successful, you'll be working to the business hours of everyone else in the world? Its not like there's a secret entrepreneurs world where you all stay up til 4 in the morning, patting each other on the back for all these 'ideas' you have...
    a) I think we all know you are going to die a virgin.

    b) None know my TSR username. But it will show up on search engines. And, I always look up a company thouroughly before doing business with them, and they do the same.

    c) I am not a fool. I think there are many people who dream about it, but don't do it. I have been involved in setting up business most of my life. I have had failures of course, like when I was left with loads of boxes of mince pies in the run up to christmas. But I also have success.

    d) No, that's wrong. I have a nice arse, although I do not care what you think it sounds like. Most of my good ideas come late at night, often when I'm in bed. I then write them on a bit of paper and go to sleep and get them in the morning. And no, your statement about hours is not neccessarily true.

    EDIT: Just curious who negged me without leaving a comment. An explanation would be nice.

    A million isn't that big a milestone to be fair. There are something like a million millionaires today, and not too difficult to achieve by living frugally, not splashing out and saving up over your working life.

    Becoming a billionaire is a different story however, there's only 1000 or so of them, and they've obviously hauled some ass to get where they are.

    But my ego is bigger than even that, which is why i aim for the elusive trilliion. My plan is under wraps for the time being, but it involves 3 girls and 2 cups.

    A trillion is 12 0s and for comparison the entire GDP of Britain is about £ 2T.

    TBH I doubt I'll ever make any kind of serious money, be able to buy a house, or anything like that... but it would be nice anyway.

    If you want to make money fast, all you have to do is write and direct a successful film. Can be a *little* bit tricky to do though :p:
    I always figured I'd just go after the main role within said film. I don't have any acting experience or anything like that, but how hard can it be? PM me if interested. If it's porn, please keep it classy. Or don't.

    I have no need to resort to immature insults. You quite clearly said



    my post and links clearly showed that you were very wrong in this assumption.

    As for where you live, I really don't know, nor care whether you live in a rotting caravan or a listed 17th century castle.

    The simple fact of the matter is, you made a silly post, which obviously wasn't true; and then felt the need to respond in a rather puerile fashion when you were pulled up on the point you made.


    thanks though
    haha this is ridiculous....my last post was silly....but only because i couldn't be bothered arguing at 2 am in the morning, which was when i posted it...but my actual original post was more or less right....first of all you didn't seem to spot the qualification in my statement: "in decent areas"....all the the links you sent are of houses pretty much in the middle of nowhere!!!...take one example....take the one in chester - chester is in the middle of nowhere........that is not my definition of a decent area. The same can be said of the others really....i didn't see one in a decent area...even Neston is pretty crap to be honest.......and ridiculously, you've posted houses that are £999,000 and £995,000, meaning i was out by 0.1% and 0.5% respectively...omg i was so wrong, i think i might just go and throw myself off a cliff:rolleyes:. And everyone knows those prices have been slashed just below a million to encourage a sale anyway because noone is buying....
    Also, a lot of the houses you have posted are modern houses i.e they have clearly been built in the past 50 years....they are not in the same league as old traditional 5 bedroom houses in decent condition, in a decent area - and by "decent area", that personally for me means "the suburbs of a major city"....not the surrounding countryside etc....which is a pretty reasonable definition, so actually i believe i was very right indeed....and you're links are pathetic and clearly don't contradict what i say.....don't you see that was why i was so dismissive with my "silly' post purely for these reasons i.e you're just being picky, when in reality....my statement as a benchmark is a right, though will probably change in the next 3 years.

    Well when you get a million you can simply have it built.

    If you can get your 10k in a 6% tax free account, and leave it for 80 years, you'll have a million.

    Who says I won't get a first?
    I wonder how many graduates of Leicester's L.L.B. programme are currently working at one of the aforementioned firms; my conservative guess would be 'none'.

    With every respect due; while Leicester is arguably among the better universities for Law, and a First (assuming you truly are one of the elite few) would hold you in good stead to seek training-contracts at Magic Circle firms, the 'white shoe' outfits occupy an altogether different league. There is no way in hell that you can reasonably expect to find yourself earning £80,000 upon qualification.

    a) Your point is? Who says I cant have ambitions.
    b) Did I say it will be easy? I'm just giving you a sense of reality you don't seem to have
    c) Give me examples of what you consider "better" universities (I am not saying they arent any more prestigious universities that Leicester, e.g. LSE, UCL, Oxford etc) Well... LSE, UCL, Oxbridge, Durham, Kings, Bristol, Notts. I'm not trying to demean your choice of Uni, I was just pointing out there are lots of grads from better Unis
    d) Point taken that that may not be the salary I will be expecting straight away but it won't be long e.g. a year or two before it does come up to that sort of figure. If you're expecting that big a salary, be prepared for an almighty shock. Hell, I WANT to go in to the exact same career as you and I'm resigned to the fact that it might be more than 1 or 2 years before I get there.

    (i) Your definition of a decent area is completely immaterial.
    (ii) The areas that I mentioned are indeed "decent" areas
    (iii)You may find your definition reasonable, that is your prerogative.
    (iv) what you origanlly said was of course completely wrong.
    (v)My links clearly do contradict what you said; if you want to change what you said then of course it is entirely possible that they would no longer be appropriate; for example if you were know to say "Gosh you can't find a decent house in Prestbury with 5 bedrooms, stables, a pool and a real lawn tennis court for less that a million pounds"; then I daresay that I would agree with you. This of course is not what you said.
    (vi) The reality is of course that it is very easy to find a rather nice 5+ bedroomed property in the north for less than 1 000 000. I found a handfull for you in less than 5 minutes.
    (vii) Its probably better if you stopped now.

    Anyways, I haven't got amything else to add to this; you have been told and thats enough for me.

    thanks though.

    Doesn't the mathmos have the advantage money wise after getting the degree? Espically since most people fail at maths, badly.

    I heard on average a mathematician earns the most after graduation, even higher then physics student, which was a surprise. I guess physics is easier and stupid, thats the only explanation.
