28. I love the part where it says others from the sold company got $100 mil
and he "only" got $10 mil, making it sound like he thinks had he gotten as much as them, he wouldn't be having his current money woes.
Please. All he would have done was spent even more and blown thru the 100 mil!

I would have been a couple mil in a trust for each of my kids to get at a certain age and found a financial lawyer or advisor to keep the rest tucked away for me and have them give me a monthly allowance.
