    Hey Paul I think you've missed out:

    7) get a rich wife preferably 80 year-old one so that you won't have long to wait for the inheritance.

    There is a big reason behind it when he donated so much to charity...the real deal is out there...think about it...you are not getting the bigger picture...think out of the box...

    Why should I, or in any case, anyone should bother about the reason/s why he donates so much .... as long as it is for charities, i guess it's a honorable thing to do.
    The real deal is that, at least the monies will be returned to the economy.
    For the big picture, it is most probably for TAX reasons.
    Thinking out of the box, probably his name will be engraved in future history.

    IMO, this is better than passing down to future generations .....

    Heard of the saying?

    "Guns dun kill men. Men kill men"

    Every mother's son of us are technically as guilty as sin, hell and the devil himself since Adam & Eve. The onus is onto oneself to cage the demon up and upon ur own death, kill that demon along with urself.

    two things:
    #1, if you are a multi billionaire, a few more billion you made will not make you any more happier, you will come to point that any more wealth is meaningless to you.
    #2, ones should always help the needy in your community and moreover don't have to pay tax to the wealth which has no meaning to you.

    lastly, what I see here, he has already understand the meaning of wealth, he is the master of his wealth, not the slave of his wealth.
