    Almost all of the "facts" in that presentation are false. Paints a nice picture of a fictional person. Not really much about Warren Buffett.

    God forbid The Chive fact check huh?

    This jackass owns 75% of the rail line used to transport oil from North Dakota. No one stands to profit more from Obama's idiotic Keystone Pipeline decision than he does. The main thing to learn from him is this: when it comes to spending your money, buy people. Not things.

      @gnarly sheen:

      OBAMAs keystone pipeline? That is 100% false and fact checkable. You should get your “news” from trusted sources, not Fox Entertainment.

    Ive heard that you can only be great at 2 areas of your life, and Buffet seems to fit that statement. He is great with business and making money. His fitness is good. But his family is a train wreck. After seeing how he treated his grand daughter in the 1% documentary I lost some respect for him.

    Ah, so you're an idiot and a homophobe. Nice to see you don't have a single worthwhile characteristic.

    So many spelling errors in the text… I would find this more moving if they spell checked it.

    Most of this is pretty good, but actually the comment about the private jets is wrong – he ALWAYS flies privately because to him it is a much more time-efficient way of traveling the globe to look at different companies and investment opportunities. Flying commercial would take way too long and not allow him to set his own schedule.

    Well I'm fucked…I break several of his rules on a weekly basis. Bring on the eternal middle class!

    lets think about this a little differently shit bag, so he has a lot of money…..he's constantly starting/investing in new businesses that create a shit load of jobs. How many jobs have you created lately? I don't see how being smart and investing is considered greed. Instead of spending every dollar he made early on in life he invested every dollar he made. And now he can go buy whatever the fuck he wants to but still donates 31 billion to charity. I think he's earned his keep.

    Money may not buy happiness but it is much more comfortable to cry in a Ferrari than on a bike.

    Buffet is not the 2nd richest man in the world. Come on Chive, a little effort here.

  • ricardo

    Small house = 6000+ square feet? Um, no.

    What is the point of being rich if you are going to live like a middle class smuck? Give me excess – in moderation – and toys for boys.

    #7 he’s member of the Augusta National golf club… kind of the opposite of that statement
