    So saw an article today, Warren buffet is giving out a billion dollars to someone that gets a perfect march madness bracket. However you won't get it all at once. They will give you 25 mil over 40 years, or 500 million up front and call it a day. So brothers I ask...if you got a perfect bracket and won which deal would you pick and why?

    By the way I'm going to take a crack at it! Hook me horns all the way!!!

    It's a bracket tournament for college basketball that they have every year to decide the best team in college basketball.

    Extended payment, if it is transferable and divisible. I have heirs.

    Yes bro. Bryan that's exactly what I was thinking. As we are practically Immortal living through are heirs and family that will carry on our name.

    I take it that means 32 win/lose predictions for the final 64, 16 win/lose predictions for the 32, 8 for the 16, 4 for the 8, 2 for the final 4, 1 for the finals. That's 63 predictions in total. The odds are extremely long even though most of the games are rated well away from 50-50. The offer is very good PR for someone who can afford to pay out.

    Oh yeah I saw the actual math for the percentage to actually get everything right and it's like .04 % odds
