some really rich people are really stupid

I’ll just leave it up to Jose Canseco to prove for me. From an interview with the highly prestigious Inside Edition — on the foreclosure of his home:

“You know my life, this financial thing, is a very complicated issue. Obviously, when you make all that money, people think, ‘OK, let’s assume it is $35 million.’ People have to understand that $35 million, you’re paying the government 41 percent. That leaves you with about $17 or $18 million, not even. Then you’re taking care of your whole family.”

Taking care of your entire family with only $17 or $18 million must be rough.
