What $207 Million Looks Like - Watch more free videos
I really believed that I did not care about money. When I first saw this video I got a hard-on or at least it moved a little. I wonder how much money was there before the filming. Hell I wonder how much is there now? ($2 Million) I hope if I had that much money I would enjoy it and not try to make more. We have people in our society that have more money than they could ever spend and they still try to earn more. They by political influence, they create companies and they even commit crimes. Hell most of them are part of the

Megan Williams, 20, was recovering at Charleston Area Medical Center's General Hospital after
police said she was kidnapped, beaten, tortured and held against her will at a home in Logan County. Six people have been charged in connection with the incident.
"Because of the serious nature of the pending charges in Logan County, both in the factual allegations and in the potential penalties if the defendants are convicted, we have and will continue to work closely with local authorities," Miller said in a release. "At this time, we believe it is appropriate to defer to the Logan County Prosecutor in pursuing the state charges against the defendants.'
Because Williams is black and the six suspects are white, some have called on authorities to classify this as a hate crime.
"There is no doubt, from what I've seen, that race was a contributing factor," said Logan County Prosecutor Brian Abraham. "Whether it was the sole motivating factor or a motivating factor, I want to wait until we get all the evidence in to this office before I make that determination."
Williams' mother said Tuesday the family is trying to cope.
"I know the Lord will somehow bring us through this, but you know, it's just devastating," said Carmen Williams.
Deputies say they received a tip Saturday that a woman was being held against her will at the Brewster residence in the Big Creek area of Logan County, according to a release from the Logan County Sheriff's Department.
When police arrived, Frankie Brewster was sitting on the front porch. She told the officer that she was alone, the release said.
As she was speaking with the officer, Brewster got up and started walking toward the door. That's when police say the victim "limped toward the door with her arms held out saying 'help me,'" the release said.
They found the Megan Williams inside the home with stab wounds to her legs and bruised eyes, the release said. Deputies said she'd also been sexually assaulted.
Family members say the nightmare began at least a week earlier.
"She has a history of kinda drifting off every once in a while so I just thought she was running around town like she usually does," said Carmen Williams
Authorities say Megan was being held hostage by 24-year-old Bobby Brewster and his mother, 49-year-old Frankie Brewster.
Police say the Brewsters, as well as four other suspects, tortured Megan Williams for days by severely beating, stabbing and raping her.
Police say they forced her to perform sex acts on multiple people. She was even made to lick up blood as well as rat and dog feces, according to court documents.
"I was shocked. I really can't understand how anybody could do anyone like that," Williams said.
The criminal complaint shows the group threatened to kill Megan if she left and shouted racial slurs at her during the abuse.
Carmen Williams said she thinks race did play a part in the ordeal, but now she is just focusing on her daughter's recovery and hoping others can learn from their story.
"I want other parents and other mothers to realize that there are people out there like that. To keep a closer eye on their children," she said. "You never think it'll happen to your child but obviously I never thought, but here we are."
The victim's most severe injuries include a fractured arm and a deep stab wound on her leg.
Deputies are still trying to determine just how long Megan Williams was held against her will. They say it could have been a week or longer.
"I mean, I've been in law enforcement for over 30 years, and this is probably the most horrendous thing that I've ever seen or ever encountered," said Logan County Sheriff Eddie Hunter.
Those charged include Frankie and Bobby Brewster, Danny Combs, George Messer, Karen Burton and Alisha Burton, the release said.
They face a slew of charges including kidnapping, sexual assault and malicious wounding.
