Or would you tell them you will look into giving them Something?

If asked " define Something" what would be your response?- This question would obviously come from your brothers or sisters.

                Well lets make an exception in your case- " Imagine you have brothers and sisters and they asked you the following" Define Something?

                What would your response be?

                 

                 

                 

                 Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations."

                         Buddha.

                 

                Why are you believing in traditions and sayings handed down to you from Buddha?

                Your quote betrays your post.

                  that's weird you would post this i just read about this guy yesterday:

                  He Left a Fortune, to No One Mr. Blum, a Holocaust survivor and real estate developer, left behind no heirs and no surviving family members his former wife died in 1992 and the couple was childless.

                  He hid $40,000 in the ceiling of his bathroom

                  Mr. Blum had about $4 million in cash in his checking account. His house was put on the market for $729,000 and is now in contract, and an eight-acre parcel he owned on Forest Avenue, worth about $4.5 million, is also in contract. A safe deposit box had more than 70 $100 bills, coins from Canada and South Africa, and gold jewelry including a watch, a bracelet, cuff links, several necklaces and a ring.

                  Mr. Blum’s few remaining personal items, including photographs and a book on the Holocaust, have been put in a box in the basement of the public administrator, where they will remain sealed unless claimed by a blood relative.

                  Once Mr. Gotlin completes liquidating the assets, and if investigators fail to find a will or surviving kin, whatever money is remaining from Mr. Blum’s estate will be passed to the city’s Department of Finance. If, after three years, no one comes forward, the money would go to the state comptroller’s office of unclaimed funds, which has $12 billion in its accounts dating to 1943. That office keeps a portion of the estate and transfers a portion to the state’s general fund. If an heir comes forward, the entire amount is returned.

                             My post in no way betrays my quote from Buddha !! You must define everything for your self never let anyone guide or misled you from your own path .Traditions are nothing at all ! They are  just away to keep control of the next generation. You have a complete mis-understanding of the quote .

                      I would not give them combined more than 10% of the jp. I wouldn't expect anybody to give me more than 10% of their jp either. I am a huge believer in self reliance, ofcourse with a little help here and there.

                      That money's gone fo ever

                          I have two sisters and one brother (that is not on drugs)...and Ive always said Id split anything over 100 million actual cash value within the four of us...that way they could help whoever they'd want to kids friends etc...and anything under 100 million I'd just give them gifts and pay off thier bills so they could retire...they are all older than me and they've all taken good care of me over the years and since our parents are dead this would be the best I could do for them...monetary wise anyway

                            No but I would split a percentage of my win
                            This is a fun question!!
                            If I won the pb..
                            I would give to my mom for a very comfy retirement
                            My 4 and 6 yr old neice and nephew college funds
                            My sister under me is a hard working single mom would get her share for a house nd things like that.
                            Now on to my younger brother and sister both under the age of 22 (-_-)..
                            Absolutely positively no lump sum gift to those 2. They are just not responsible yet.
                            They would wizz anything substantial on fancy cars, motorcycles, video games,  clothes, shoes, tigers even magic beans probably. They would get a very meager monthly stipend to cover living expenses and only if they are in college. If they get upset about it meh tough cookie.
                            They better not ask for a set amount either , I think what you are willing to give should be good enough.

                            Sure.. There's Always a chance..Wink
