I'd bang her.

Then I'd try to shoot a load in her hair. Why? Because Dell never shipped the toner I ordered. I know it's not her fault, but whatever. I'm petty like that.

This reminds me of people who, you talk to them f2f or on the phone and it's all "nothing new, blah blah" and then you see on their facebook or twitter that they're getting married/divorced/sexchange/having a baby/inoperable brain tumor. And you know that they knew that you didn't know, so WTF? Comfortable telling the world but not in person.

$2.7 million a year on security? Are ninjas trying to kill the Dell family or is he getting taken for a ride by the Wang Cho family?

I'd rather shoot one inside her so she becomes pregnant, we get married, and I ride that Dell gravy train for the rest of my life.

They're famous? I know they own a company but famous?

This is why wealth is a curse. Always having to look over your back, can't enjoy the simple pleasures in life, like sending out a mere invitation to your friends. Those kids will have to deal with that shiat for the rest of their lives. The money is going to be the albatross around their neck.

Either that or, in his own mind, everyone cares about the existence of a third-tier computer mogul.

And by "everyone" I mean he actually thinks some kind of terrorists or secret government agents are out to kidnap him and torture him for his information. When the only person who MIGHT want to go after him would be someone shilling for Anonymous.

Or, you know, rich people and their family members are at a higher risk of being kidnapped for ransom. Nah, you're probably right and it's about "secrets".

I doubt he's worried about terrorists or secret agents so much as garden-variety kidnappers looking to collect a big ransom payment.

Because that happens so often in America. Why, you can't open the paper without reading about how some mega-millionaire has been kidnapped and beaten for his PIN number.

Get real. It happens in a few other places. It doesn't happen here. Hackers have pretty much removed the need to take an actual person when that actual person's ID can be swiped right off the Internet.

I hear you, years ago i bought a dell, and a few months later received a letter from a lawyer about a class action lawsuit against dell for using refurbished hard drives and other items in "new computers". All i got was an extension on my warranty. Ill ride shotgun.

If you didn't noticed the Rich Kids of Instagram link, as others in this thread have mentioned, I suggest checking it out. It will make you feel a little sick inside. Or maybe you'll feel full on dead inside.

Okay God, you win. I'm sufficiently "punk'd." Can I wake up to an enlightened society yet? Equality?

I saw that page. It's pretty friggin gross and tacky.

Yeah... showing off your Bentley and private plane at 16 years old doesn't make you look cool or accomplished. It makes you look like a spoiled twat.

No kidding.

I usually try not to get into the Fark hate-the-rich echo chamber, but its hard not to wonder how many of those pictures of 100k bar tabs and mega-yacht vacations were made possible by outsourcing American jobs or Wall Street fraud.

But your right, lets lower taxes on the rich some more.

Nope. It sure doesn't. However, as these yutes grow up, slide effortlessly into high paying positions with their father's friend's companies, or get bankrolled to start a clothing line, or just inherit it all and let a team of financial planners grow it every year for doing nothing, the lower middle class will still white knight them and fight to the death to keep their taxes low.

If I remember, she was kidnapped when she was a baby and they lived in a less wealthy area of Austin..
They got her back, then built a compound in the hills...

When I worked at Build A Bear in Cedar Park, Alexis had her 10th birthday there... her mother was a biatch, and they had their security hanging outside the store... nobody wanted to come in while the party was going on, the security guards were super scary...
And Susan Dell demanded the employees take all the presents to the limo while the girls went to birthday lunch... security guards would not let us within 50 feet of the limo...
They made us take everything outside, then they took everything to the limo...

And my husband worked for Dell at the time, and had met Michael a few times, said he was super nice...

Yeah, I am normally not an "ignorance is bliss" guy, but I wish I had never seen that.

I grew up in Los Gatos, CA and was best friends with the son of an executive at a tech company. Back then they did very well. Last year when visiting home we had lunch at his parents estate. Time has been good to them. I was impressed and sickened at the same time.

And before the accusations I freely admit jealousy is a part of it.

Maybe the reason it doesn't often happen here is because the super-rich hire boatloads of security men to ensure it doesn't?

Besides, housefires are pretty rare too -- I personally have never seen one -- but I still buy fire extinguishers and keep them handy. The cost of those extinguishers is only a tiny fraction of my net worth, just as the cost of security is only a tiny fraction of Michael Dell's.
