    I am willing to believe that you own the cars you claim to own, but this statement begs the question:  If you will lie about something as basic as your educational background, why should anyone believe anything else you have to say?

    Well, LNM, a formal education isn't everything. If you really are LNM, I admire you plenty just for what you've done in business. A stroll down the Forbes 400 (of which you are a part) shows plenty of similar billionaires who dropped out of high school, college, etc. It's actually fairly typical for extremely wealthy individuals. Bill Gates never finished college. Warren Buffett thinks most academicians are nuts (I agree). Book smarts can only get you so far in life. Real world experience is what matters in reality. You seem to have tamed our business reality fairly well. Nothing wrong with that, as some people -- like me -- don't care about what education level people obtain (despite my supposed "disdain for the working class"), its who you are and what you stand for that matters.

    Yes Vero, thanks for that, but I do know that.

    You guys actually think I am lying dont you? (about being who I am)

    It was wierd enough for you guys to question what cars I owned, and I reluctantly gave you pictures, but now you are questioning my identity.

    May at least sombody have some sanctity left...

    Granted we seemingly had an impostor post as Tommy Hilfiger, if "kalra" is actually Lakshmi Mittal, all I can say is "whoa."  How did you come to know of Style Forum?

    Oh and by the way, you have to pay to get into all rich lists, like the Forbes 400, and Sunday Times Rich List.

    Okay, I'm gullible, but I am choosing to believe that you are in fact Lakshmi Mittal.

    Why should you be ashamed of your education? I have, by all estimations, a world class education, and pretty much no money. I am happy for the privilege of the first, and am not particularly concerned that I don't have the other, except that I do like to know that I can make rent on a regular basis.

    As for discussing luxuries, there seems to be a thin line, especially in a nominally egalitarian society, between being an enthusiast and a braggart.

    Finally, of course there aren't going to be too many people in the "richest people" in the world category here, if only for statistical reasons. It takes real interest in any particular subject to devote time reading and writing about it as we do here, and this interest is not necessarily correlated with the ability to afford these things. There are plenty of middle class guys who lust after Kiton and PP watches, and lots of affluent guys who own the same and know nothing about them.

    Having said all of this - I don't care whether you are Lakshmi Mittal or a pimply faced teenager. My words would remain the same. If you really like discussing men's style, cars, etc... I hope that you will stay with us.

    BTW, to everyone else. This situation is why I thought that the "list of things I own" threads were a bad idea to begin with.

    Thanks for the sympathy, but I still will be embarrsed by my education.

    That's some stable of cars you have there. Â I'll be lucky to someday replace the '95 minivan I drive... What in the world does Lakshmi Mittal have to be embarrassed about?[​IMG]

    No, I'll agree that you are LNM. But you have to understand, we have no clue as to what it is like to have as much wealth as you. When someone comes online and starts ostensibly bragging about all the worldly possessions they own, we have to call "bullshit" because the statistical odds of someone with LNM's wealth walking into our little forum here are so low, it's inconceivable:

    Top 400 Wealthiest divided by 6 billion people in the world equals 0.00000 Oh whatever, it's a very small number.

    See?

    Anyway, welcome.

    Now, back to the clothes.

    Have you not heard of the case against me with the Labour Party? (certainly embarrasing)
    Obviously, but then again what are the chances that you are realy Vero from Texas, I choose to belive it because it would seem ridiculous not to, and I feel the same way about what you people are doing to me, what you may not realise is that just because sombody is rich, it does not mean they will feel any diffrent if you accuse them of not being themself.
