    Money is useless... personally I only care about the things I can exchange it for

    Any more money than that is a burden IMO

    Rather be still able to play certain sports and be active when I'm 65+ than have 50 mill in the bank. Life is boring when you're old and you can't do shit.

    Nah, lots of stuff you can spend your money on.

    You can never have to much money.
    I'd rather have time.

    Obviously, money is needed for a decent living but there comes a point where I value my time just as much as what I can spend.

    He never said you can't have both of those, either.

    That said, to a certain extent, more money can buy more time (I'm sure you know this, more than most around here).

    More money means being able to pay for services that take up your time, freeing you to spend your time doing things you'd rather. Cleaning, cooking, errands, repairs... all of those can take up a significant amount of your time. "But, but, I like to cook" - well, that's not the point... No one likes scrubbing their toilets or dusting their window sills... Having money means you can pay someone to do that.

    And money is not useless without the things you can exchange it for. Having an "excess" of money means security. Exchanging it for "things" is one thing, but not having to worry about costs if / when something unexpected crops up is pretty priceless... There can be a lot of crappy situations that only get worse if you have the additional stress of how you can afford the solution... I'd rather be in a position where that isn't a factor.
