It doesn’t matter how hard we all try to avoid being materialistic, the thought of becoming a billionaire has crossed everyone’s mind at least once, and there is no need to deny it.

So what is it actually like to have so much money you don’t have to think for a second before you buy a new phone or a car or even a plane? Well, one Tumblr user, The Last Meme Era, has explained what you could actually buy if you became a billionaire one day, and it’s more than you could imagine. In an interview with Bored Panda, he explained the idea behind this post: “Basically I guessed that most people probably don’t have a clear concept of what a billion dollars actually is, and if I could put it into practical terms that are easy to understand, people would be shocked at just how rich the world’s wealthiest people are. Hopefully people might be moved to become more socially engaged if they had a better picture of how society distributes economic resources.”

From the fastest cars to the biggest boats, and even the capital to buy an entire country, this post proves what being in the 1% really means. Scroll down below to read the post yourself, and don’t forget to tell us what you think in the comments!
