I was wondering about that too. The Cullens are probably millionaires (they have a car that doesn't exist OR make logical sense?) Jacob and the wolves are probably the tallest guys in the world...


Oh! This also just occurred to me: They probably don't pay taxes for all the money they make. It was already been mentioned about playing the stock market using fake names or under the guise of a business, but you have to figure they're only paying taxes for Carlisle's doctor's salary, meaning, in the eyes of the government they probably are only making a couple 100k a year (or less, given that I doubt Forks' hospital pays all too well). So while they are probably multi-millionaires, the majority of that money is probably not associated with the Cullen name.

Also, I know a few people who are 6' 5" - 7', and most of the time a good amount of their family is also tall. The wolves can just say they have hearty genes. =P

I think Jazz was *not nice* to the frogery guy, because at that time he may have not learned to treat humans like people instead of food.(ha ha ha);)

As too reply to the post before me I think? I bet thier Zillioniars, because
-there are human multimillionairs that lived for maybe but the have lived for ever.
-Alice's powers
-don't need to buy food, and thing from the super matket. THink about all the money people spend Every week for 90 years! Maybe 50 b, so think of how much the Cullens son't need to spend thier mony on!

Whenever people talk about saving money on food, I find it humorous, because look at all the expensive stuff they buy. Saving money on food doesn't mean anything when they buy the cars they have, the furniture they use, the clothing they wear, and the fact each of the Cullen "kids" has gone through college multiple times, especially expensive Ivy League schools and grad school, etc. Not to mention they probably spend most people's weekly food allowance on gas. The type of cars they drive? They're filling up on premium, and given the speeds they drive I suspect they have to refuel fairly often. Acceleration and driving high speeds can be killer to anyone's tank.

... Oh the Cullens, they really are PETA's worst nightmare aren't they? Eating animals, and assisting the world's depletion of fuel.

I disagree. In what way is driving fast, cheating the stock market, and buying their way into Ivy League schools necessary?

Those aren't, but creating falsified IDs, passports, etc. are. You figure they have to reconfigure their identity and documents every few years, of which all would involve forgery and other forms of illegal activities.

I think that the illegal activities that the Cullens take part in are somewhat wrong but hey theyre vampires who wants to mess with them for doing it????? :lol: The forgery thing is kind of like a necessity how else could they possibly live with humans and travel e.t.c.

To talk about of the few posts before mine....
The cullens save money on alot of things like Toilet paper, Food, and groceries, Beds, pots, and pans, certain types of toiletries, they already have perfect complexions so they dont need cover up either, I mean theyre beautiful so they dont need most types of make up products........ :roll:
