You spent $5 million for what?!?!

Looking through my blogging notes, I found the following tidbit.....

In June 2008, Reuters reported Google co-founder Sergey Brin put a down payment of $5 million on a tourist space flight.  If one has that kind of money to waste, why not do something constructive with the money?  To whom much is given, much is required.

Several "projects" come to mind on which to spend money:
  Feed the hungry
  Clothe the cold
  Training the jobless
  Medicine for elderly

In my opinion, $5 million could be a tool to reach people, provide for their need, and minister to their soul.  But hey, I missed the Dot Com bubble by that much!
