For most regular human beings this is the law of nature, that is until you become immortal.
Gawker reports that the brother of disgraced financier Bernard Madoff- Peter Madoff has been reduced to having to live off only on $10000 a month. Seeing that his funds have been frozen (and this is the operative word- his funds or some sucker’s funds?) Peter is now having to come to terms with his mortality. Is it no wonder we strive for immortality any which way we can (that includes scams if need be) to avoid the horrible conundrum?- ‘what goes up must unfortunately go down too…’
