Of course.  Very few hit the jackpot ... and if they do, it is probably because they are a front company for the CIA (see Facebook).

Megamillions, Powerball, all the proven ways to get rich.

Joseph Patrick Kennedy was an example of getting rich if your father wasn't.

It's natural selection - survival of the richest.

I, then, am a law breaker, since I sleep under a bridge. Does that make me a troll?

Oh, well...

You eat little children who cross your bridge.  So I rhetorically ask ... do they taste good, are they tender ;-(

Yes, being a vagrant is against the law.  Shouldn't be however!!

The chances of you being rich if your father was not are pretty slimm.  I once read that the best 2 ways of becoming wealthy were if you (legally) stole money or if you inherited it and that inheriting it was the better option.

Some people are geniuses and earn it via Microsoft and Apple.  Some people get moderate wealth by saving and investing.  My Dad was not a Robber Baron or the son of one, so I had to save and invest intelligently.

Guess who got out of the stock market before Trump started ruining the economy?

You didn't waste your money on marriage and children (not that there is anything wrong with not marrying or parenting).  I would be much materially richer, with different life choices.  I am happy with the ones I made (which involve disaster and other pains).

I fully understand that.  I was just saying that what I could save went well.  Quick story.  When I was about 15, I had saved about $60 and wanted to invest it.  My Dad's Broker kindly agreed to manage my small fund (I'm sure he spotted a future customer). 

I wanted Sperry Rand at $5 per share.  I thought computers were a good investment.  Dad liked old established companies.  Studebaker was also selling at $5 per share.  He forced me into Studebaker.  In a couple years, it went to $13.  Hurray!

Sperry Rand went to $56.

I never forgot that...
