 Warren Buffett recently announced his $31 billion gift to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Certainly a generous gift but he should spend more time bragging about how he could've spent that money:

1) A fast food combo meal for everyone on the face of the Earth
2) Purchase the entire National Football League, including all 32 teams and players
3) Give a $100 bill to every man, woman and child in America
4) Buy enough gasoline to drive round-trip to Pluto three times
5) Order 2,393,822,393 copies of mental_floss: Cocktail Party Cheat Sheets from mentalfloss.com, making Mangesh and Will the next mega-billionaires. I promise we'd give some to charity.
