    with all his cash could he not:

    - come up with an alternative source of energy thereby changing all of mankind?

    - what if he or his wife had cancer... woudl there not be a cure found or would it be repressed by pharmaceutal companies?



    what would you do to leave your mark with his money?

    Buy the New York Jets and spend the next 5 years creating and then debunking and creating speculation that Mangini would be fired, even hiring a really good young guy as his "back up" like Wade Philips has in Dallas. Then I'd leak privately how much I didn't like him and wasn't satisfied with the team, but publicly praise him...then laugh as the Maalox was delivered to the coaching offices by the case, and hope that at some point Mangini is found, huddled in a corner, sucking his thumb and sobbing, "bill, bill I'm sorry bill" over and over.

    Then I'd start having some fun.



    I'd join up with T. Boone Pickens and build big asss ol' wind farms in Texas.

    And I'd live on a very big boat...and I'd have people to solve any problem that cropped up. ANY problem.

    :D

    My family loved me even though I spent all my money building a rocket ship for a one-way trip to Mars.
