Well there are worse ways to go...

"A billion here, a billion there: soon you're talking real money."
~Warren Buffet

I realise this is subjective but I now regularly drink, and prefer, powdered Japanese Green Macha Tea. Here's a link https://matchasource.com/health-benefits-of-matcha-tea/.
I don't know about the veracity of the health benefit claims but if there are any then that's a plus because I like the flavour. Quick to make and easy to vary the strength until it's right for you. A salt spoon full makes a fairly strong brew.

The “A billion here, a billion there—soon you're talking real money.” is actually a Senator Everett Dirksen quote. It was funny at the time back when a billion dollars seemed like a lot of money.

"Billions -real money", I don't think Warren Buffett ever made that statement, if he did, he was quoting Everett Dirksen, who was usually credited with the line.

Dirksen says he was misquoted, simply because it sounded good.

...and while my fellow TOPpers are busy pinning the quote to some poor, misguided senator, I think I'll sneak off with just one of those countless billions and go buy myself some f1.2 m43 lenses.

I agree, I drink matcha regularly. But I was recently shocked to find out about the toxicity in conventional matcha from this blog: https://blog.piquetea.com/matcha-green-tea/

If you want to reap the benefits of matcha through regular consumption, organic, ceremonial grade matcha is critical!
