Default ONE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS

Anyone know how much that is? I can't even grasp that.
Thats a 1 with 8 zero'* folks.
$100,000,000.
That is a lot of freaking money.
And, that is how much some one anonymously donated to my hometown, Erie, PA.

Unfreakinbelievable.
Hadn't even heard about it until I saw this on yahoo.

That is what I am trying to figure out. Who has that kind of money to just give away?
1 million or two, a lot of people could do that.
But who could, let alone would, be able to give away One Hundred Million?
