I can’t get the math to work.

Publishers Clearing House is running their promotion offering 1 winner a million dollars a year for the rest of their life plus the lifetime of a person of the winner’s choosing. IF the winner is 25, lives an additional 50 years and then passes on the prize to a grandchild or great grandchild who will live an additional 85 years, that’s a 135 million dollars. Someone is going to have to sell a helluva lot of magazines.
Of course, 135 years from now, money may have disappeared and we’ll be bartering with coconuts.
