1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Steve - to answer that question, the home is actually the one in which his wife, Cindy "Hensley" McCain, grew up. Her family owns Hensley Distributing which is the Anheuser-Busch distributor for the Phoenix Metropolitan area. The money that McCain has is mostly from his wife. He doesn't personally have a large amount himself and I believe that he has given the proceeds of his book and movie rights to charity.

    The greatest store in the entire world Don Quijote is in Shinjuku. [​IMG] Six floors of utter chaos piled up to the ceiling. Unbelievable.
    First of all, it's Don Keehotay. My guess is you know the theme song by heart if you've ever spent more than a minute and a half in any of their stores. "Don-don-don, Don-kee, Don kee, ho-o-tay." The one in Roppongi is surreal.

    Back to the question of what you'd do if you [inherited] $20 mil.

    I'd get my pilot's license and take up the hobby of flying vintage aircraft.

    I want to fly a Fokker D.VII.

    Income Fund (property focused), giving me a very very nice income for doing nothing every year. Then gradually use the income to get all the stuff you see in cribs!

    What, you like your long term investments with a nice spoonful of volatility?

    LMFAO. Although, after reading through JA's Jag / Asshole post I think he's a genius...

    Jon.


    Why, thank you.

    WallyPower 118. It gets 14 gallons per mile (!) cruising, or 951 gallons per hour at top end (!!!), with 16,800 turbo-driven HP. 118' feet long with a top end of 70mph.

    $20 million spread out over 65 years is about $845.00 a day. Counting just waking hours, usually 16, you can spend $52.00 an hour every day. Almost a dollar a minute. Close, but no cigar!

    Of course I'm calculating from my age (35) until I'm 100. If I wait a couple more years before I start using my $20 million, I'd probably fall into the $1 a minute range.

    Dude, if I had 20 million to spend, it would be gone in ten years, and I'd probably be dead with a smile on my face somewhere trashy.
