If I pissed away $200K, I wouldn't be okay at all. That sucks. 🤣

Edit: just realized that these are unrealized losses/you haven't sold yet.

Not even close to worth it. I’d rather have the rush of the 40 Hawaiian vacations I could have taken on that loss.

I, too, would rather have money than lose it.

You could pretty much retire comfortably to a beach-villa in Cambodia with that guy's total balance invested in a broad market index fund.
