    If you’re gonna spend that much money on your home, you’d figure it wouldn’t be such a butt freaking ugly building

    You assume that money just fell out of the sky and now he has to choose what to do with it. I’m sure he worked hard for it and wouldn’t have if he didn’t plan on spending his earnings on himself

    Ok, but that doesn’t me he needs to spend 2 BILLION dollars on a house…he lives in a place a large majority of people live in hovels. If I worked hard and made a substantial amount of money, I too would spend a large portion on myself…but I would also try and help my fellow man; nobody deserves to live the way many do in India, or anywhere for that matter.
