“I’d rather spend my money on my genome than a Bentley or an airplane,”
Mr. Stoicescu said he worried about being seen as self-indulgent (though he donates much more each year to philanthropic causes), egotistical (for obvious reasons) or stupid (the cost of the technology, he knows, is dropping so fast that he would have certainly paid much less by waiting a few months).
In my opinion he shouldn’t worry about being seen as a self-indulgent egotistical stupid person. He already is. Whoever drops the philanthropy excuse is a sure winner for the self-indulgent prize, anytime.
Maybe the airplane or the Bentley would be more fulfilling.
