Scenario: you worked until your 50's/60's and invested wisely like a good boy. You just retired formally and you are never looking back. At a quick check-up before you and your significant other take a trip to Bora Bora you go to a doctor and find out you have an extremely aggressive form of cancer/dementia that will leave you bedridden in 1.5 years and likely a vegetable in 2.

You have all this money saved up for retirement but your time to spend it is drastically reduced. What do you do the last 2 years of your life with millions of dollars at your disposal? Remember, you're in your 50's/60's.

Also, please no 'OH YEAH WELL I'M GONNA RETIRE AT 35 SO FUCK YOU' or 'OH YEAH WELL NOBODY IN MY FAMILY HAS EVER HAD CANCER SO I GUESS THE QUESTION DOESN'T APPLY TO ME' shitposts.

This is exactly what happened to my dad. He retired at 66, 1 year later he was diagnosed with brain cancer. Slowly became a vegetable then died
>>
Cry like a bitch for a month then go on a bender that hopefully kills me before the disease.

This is one of those "life sucks; then you die" scenarios. The best you can really do is to distribute your wealth in a way that brings you the most happiness. At least to hopefully feel that all your hard work wasn't in vain.

I would buy the most luxury RV I could find, travel around the USA to the best resorts. Leave great tips, the best cocaine, beautiful escorts. Then leave my house and fucking pimped out RV to Paul who used to come visit his dad once a month, not like Kara who went to live in Germany with her nigger husband who I told her not to marry. They won't see a dime of what I got.

Then at the end of it all, go sky diving without a parachute because that would be an awesome way to go out.

If you're a single man with no kids in your 50s, that's an easier question to answer. But, with a wife and possibly kids, your options may be a little more limited.

Most people really won't be able to just go on a bender and spend it all because your wife will still need something left. And you may want to leave something for your kids too.

If you're being boring about it, take your half of the retirement money, set aside 10-20% for the kids, and blow through it on booze and cruises.

Or, maybe you decide to take a fishing trip with your wife, and she unfortunately falls in the water. Then, you'll have to go to Thailand and go on an actual bender. But only out of grief, of course.

Get my will in order, break the news to my kids, and resign myself to seeing out my final months in a care home on the strongest painkillers money can buy. Probably put a euthanasia plan in place if I was going to be a vegetable/demented.

Not much else I *could* do, is there? I'd be consoled by the knowledge that my hard work will provide for my family.

If I was single: hookers, booze, hire a dozen hitmen to kill every cunt who has ever crossed me from kindergarten to date, charter a private 747 full of dynamite and bacon and crash it in Mecca as payback for 9/11.

its not a whining/existential thread

just a 'you put in decades of hard work just to die/be bedridden 1-2 years into your playtime years, what would you do if life handed you this card' thread

to be frank its a reality a lot of people face. there's like 5 guys in my firm that are in their late 50's and diabetic/fat as fuck that probably won't enjoy their retirement because they'll be dead or on 20 different medications they have to take daily

and while something like diabetes is the fault of the person, stuff like cancer or dementia can happen to you even if you do everything right

do as much as I can for jesus , since i know i am going to be standing to be judged very soon.

Those five guys fucked themselves over by not setting goals for their retirement. Every young person, at the point where they begin to create regular income, should have their exit strategy figured out.

What is the point? Do you intend for your retirement funds to be insurance against your physical and/or mental inability to work as you age, or your ability to compete in the job market? Or is it to simply avoid working? Take vacations and trips and such? If the latter is so, why are you waiting until the sunset of your life to do these things? What about your children? Are you going to leave them a significant inheritance? Set up college and trust funds for your grandchildren? Who here doesn't think it would be great to have this kind of help at various points in your life?

There are too many people out there who just dump money into various retirement funds and plans without considering these things. I don't have a lot of sympathy for someone who retires not having disbursements for these planned out, any more than I do an 18-year-old burning through college funds with no thought as to a degree path.

Consider that your religion is the bastard child of Zoroastrianism, Paganism, and ancient Canaanite religion. And yet, out of all the thousands of other "one true religion"s out there in the world, yours is special because mommy and daddy told you about it when you were a young and impressionable child.

>he doesn't practice Christianity out of reverence for the European pagan traditions upon which his ancestors built this great civilization

Why don't you just be life partners with a "Syrian" "child" "refugee" already
>>
>>1699342
You might as well practice paganism directly then. I agree that it can make sense to practice a religion in a cultural heritage context, but practicing modern consumerized christianity is pleb-tier at best. If I were religious, I would at least be into something more genuine.

So don't practice modern, consumerized Christianity. Listen to yourself, it's like if you said you couldn't eat hamburgers because McDonald's exists.

Personally, I would take all the money, convert it to gold and store it in multiple third party vaults in safe countries across the world (Switzerland, Singapore, Hong Kong) that my child(ren) can open in like 10 years.

I'd also start writing my will, see who in my family wants what.

I'd take a few thousand dollars and visit places I always wanted to see. Kotor Montenegro, Prague Czech Rep., St. Petersburg Russia, all around Tibet, I always wanted to see a Harpy Eagle (favorite animal) in South America in real life as well so I'd visit there. Maybe those mountains in Peru.

Finally I'll either retreat to some secluded place where I can make my peace with God and that sort of stuff and quietly wither away.

I see a lot of old homeless people out on the street. I guess it would be better to have a couple of years of wealth than many years of poverty.

Why would i wait until 50 to retire? I plan to be retired in my 30s.
>>
Provided that I would have brought kids into the world, I'd probably take care of all my will/estate-planning as fast as I could.

In the meantime, I'd also write out a suicide note, and then plan a day on which I would dress in my best, drive out to the countryside, and shoot myself.

And I guess all the while I'd try to enjoy the little things of everyday life..
