    What's the difference between a million and a billion? About a billion.

    To put this into perspective, one million seconds ago was last week, one billion seconds ago was in the 1980s.

    A millionaire spending $100,000 a day is out of money in 10 days, a billionaire would take 27 years.

    At the end of the day they will both have nothing.

    A billionaire who had his money at 3.7% wouldn't run out of money.

    A billion means nothing if they are Twats ... a million is priceless if they are empathetic, generous and good people

    Didn’t watch the video , but the “ small boat “ in the foreground is way out of the reach of the vast majority of millionaires .....

    Not sure on how much it would cost as I don’t look at that segment of the boating market , but somewhere between 5-20 mill depending on maker , age , specs etc .

    if you want to blow you mill and live in the boat I think this is a nice option.

    environmentally friendly option is a Greenline

    That would be bigamy.

    And the penalty for bigamy is very severe.

    This comparison is ridiculous. A billion is 1000x more than a million.

    Now divide a million by 1000 and you get 1000.

    A millionaire can easily drive a half decent sports car. Someone with only $1000 is lucky to drive an old commodore and is most likely on welfare and living in Tregear lol.

    I remember the story my daughter told me. Her boss pulled the 55 meter yacht into Monte Carlo Marina for the GP.
    “How embarrassing. Look at the boats we have had to park alongside” Her boss was worth about $3-4 Billion and the boats on either side were well over the 100 metre length.
    So even amongst billionaires there is a one upmanSHIP.
