They really value the diversity in thinking and they've developed lots of successful portfolio managers and analysts that way... Who knew??

    One of the wealthiest Texans in his day was HL Hunt who said he considered education a detriment to accumulating wealth. He left school after the 5th grade.

On the one hand, he screams spend whatever amount over and above MSRP because that is the true price. On the other hand, he won't wear a watch over a hundred bucks on the beach for fear of scratching it and adversely affecting resale value. A TRUE MOR with the ULTIMATE Rolex collection has no care in the world about scratching a Rolex because another 'Unicorn' (as he calls it) can be bought with pocket-change.
    And this is it folks . Could have been the conclusion of OoO

    My one Omega (gasp), and occasionally a Tudor Sub. TBH, only Rarely.
    Was gonna say I didn’t know you had a Tudor Sub, and why don’t you post pics? Then I saw J-Mod edited your post and I’m wondering what to believe.

    IIRC, he finally backed-off the idea that his was the ultimate collection, and stated that his collection was best for him. At first, he was saying that he was the big fish in a small pond and that his collection was the best one out there.

    That is not ultimate in my opinion.
    I am w you since what appears to me to be complete duplication looks like hoarding. If one considers the ultimate collection by the sum of its value then maybe in that case that is the ultimate Rolex collection but aside from that to me it is just silly.

    I asked my sister yesterday about the number of overweight people on TV commercials. Watching commercials is the second best activity next to watching buyers at Costco.
