    Warren Buffet is offering $1B for a perfect March Madness Bracket. Now, in all honesty, its being paid out in yearly installments of $25M(which is chump change compared to the $1B i deserve, am I right? ;)). But make sure you enter!

    To bring you back to earth a little bit, here are the odds of that occurring:

    1 in 9,223,372,036,854,775,808

    Yeah technically I think its Quicken Loans running it with Warren Buffet Insuring it(i.e they pay him a premium, say $1M and if someone wins, he pays the Billion), but they are approaching it somewhat together it looks like.

    With odds like that, looks like his billion is pretty safe.

    Considering Warren pledged $60B to the Gates Foundation, I don't think this is going to break the bank.

    Can't wait to win.
