    I would say rich is anyone who earns at least 6 times as much income, or has at least 60 times as much money as most people in their own community.

    You can't put an actual figure on richness though, since money has a different worth in every country. It's all relative. I would be considered rich to many people around the world in developing countries, but in this country, I'm not rich.

    By that definition, you couldn't have a community of rich people or a community of poor people. Only when you compared members of the community to members of other communities would they appear rich or poor.

    But what if you consider other kinds of richness, like cultural richness, or so, how do you define that?

    my heart is full and my cup is empty. having things of no value, i can see the value in things.

    thanks, thats why the chicks dig rich guys;)
     
  13. rich is heavy with cream and dark chocolate (c'mon now, don't be stingy)
    rich is not having to time your shower
    rich is loaded with meanings
    rich is surrounded by comfort (material or otherwise - you decide)
    rich is indulging your hedonism
    rich is fairly subjective.

    Huh????? I'm kinda slow on the uptake right now.. What do you mean with the piss thing???:confused:
     
  19. taking the piss...It's kind of hard to explain. It's also known as taking the mickey, a bit like satire only not always intelligent... basically i don't really mean that those things are richness.
