85 Year Old Billionaire Nearly Broke After Donating Entire Net Worth

Serious question…how can you be smart enough to make over $8 billion and be dumb enough to only have $2 million to live on?  To be fair, he is 85 years old soo…

$2 million is not what it used to be.  I could spend $2m in a weekend if I tried hard enough. I don’t know what 85 years olds spend their money on.  Does he have diamond crusted diapers?  Gold plated bed pan?

Also, if I’m his kid I’m fucking livid.  Literally generational wealth just donated to everyone but your kids…I’ll never understand these billionaires who decide to give EVERYTHING away. Is it guilt?

What’s wild is your boy Charles is not alone.

Warren Buffett Donates $2.9 Billion

Zuckerberg donates $3 Billy

Buffett giving $31 Billion to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation

“I have so much that I need to give back” is not the worst thing in the world.  Donating is good.  Helping those who have less than you is good.  Relinquishing your entire net worth is dumb and I hope I have the opportunity to make that choice one day.
