That lump sum sh*t sucks, I think I really would rather just take home $13 mil a year, and be cool with that, and get almost 100 million more dollars total, than if I took the lump sum. I think $13 mil a year, would be enough to keep me alive for another 26.
What if you die in 5 years though wanna get a nice $20 million dollar crib right off the bat?
I'd take the lump sum, set myself up real nice with a house and a couple cars, then just live well off the interest the lump sum would be collecting
I guess it all depends though how lavishly you want to live at first. I wouldn't blow through it, but if I hit it I would probably spend more than 13 million in the first year.
