The following is a true thing. Also, it seems absolutely impossible. Impossible to me and perhaps to you. When I first read about it, I assumed it was false. A hoax.
But no. It’s true. I checked and rechecked. This really happened.
30 years ago, Spy magazine sent “refund” checks for $1.11 to 58 millionaires and billionaires.
A little less than half – 26 in all – cashed their check. Spy then sent those 26 another check for $0.64.
Half of them – 13 in all – cashed that check and then received another check from Spy for $0.13.
Only two of the remaining millionaires and billionaires cashed their $0.13 checks.
Who were those millionaires and billionaires?
Donald Trump and the uncle of murdered Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
The universe is a strange and incomprehensible place.
