When is 100M a Measley Amount?

When it's a divorce settlement with Tiger Woods:

Elin Nordegren Settles For Tiger Woods' Measly Offer Of Only $100 Million

I guess everything is relative

Not too bad. She won't have to dig into the $100M to look after the kids.

OOC, what's 4% of 100M? Can a person live on it?

Maybe the judge is banking on his future human capital?

Better start winning some tournaments if so!

I was wondering if the rational has to do with how long he has been playing golf and how long they were married. Also, I'm guessing they have a prenup.; so the offer was $100M or we go to court to get the prenup enforced.

Heck, it will just about cover the cost of my new aircraft (along with maintenance, fuel, and pilot costs) to be delivered next year:
