Default How rich do you have to be to turn down $9 million for nothing?

As rich as Afzal Khan, I guess. He has the exclusive rights to the "F1" license plate in the UK, and he apparently prizes it quite a bit. He bought it a couple of years ago for nearly a million, and since then, it's skyrocketed in value.

It's crazy when you imagine that a piece of metal is worth $9m+ to someone.

LOL, I do admit that's borderline absurd. Especially when you consider he's holding that kind of money back from a charity he could donate to... over a freaking vanity plate.

Of course, it might help that I don't get attached to much in way of material things.
