Reminder to self: don't piss off Tom.I'd take the annuity. Something like $70 mil/yr.
Donate $300 mil ($10 mil/yr) to Springfield College, UConn, Tufts Medical School, and Bay State Medical Center, and my Voc High School (scholarships and start up money for those who stick with their trade).
The UConn money will go for naming rights for science buildings and scholarships in the name of my grad advisor, Stu Heywood, and Linda Strausbaugh, an incredible teacher. The rest for athletics.
That leaves me $20 mil/yr for fun.
I have a former coworker who hated me, and she hates dogs. I'll buy houses that surround her property, tear down the houses and put in dog parks. Maybe a shelter for stray pets.
Another former coworker wanted the school committee to send pregnant students to alternative schools. It was a crusade that lasted for years. I'll buy houses on her street and donate them as shelters for pregnant teens. Maybe build an alternative school.
I have a former neighbor who constantly complained about my house ("hideous solar panels"), my lawn, and the "dreadful color" of another neighbor's house. After 20 years, they moved a couple miles away just to get away. I plan to buy the house next to them, or across the street. Paint it pink, add solar panels, and plant that grass that is always brown.
I have a nephew who refused to pay rent, and refused to move out of a house I owned. I plan to give money to everyone in my family except him. He has a couple exes at this point. Neither ended well. I will give each money. I may buy the house he lives in just to evict him.
Worth noting: I'll give him the opportunity to double his salary as long as he has a full time stable job, and donates eight hours/wk to a shelter, soup kitchen, or whatever. I'm not a totally heartless Dick.
Bottom line, I've got plans. Trust me, I've got plans.
