Nice.

I hope they save some of that up, because after you pay taxes and the agent, they're likely down to around half of those totals.

With taxes about half, agent likely another 15-20% hit. But still, in two years Malcolm and Harper make about a lifetime of earnings compared to most of us over 50 years of age.

agreed... but they have a lifetime ahead of them, and that type of money goes fast, especially if you put half million down on a modest home, and does not count trying to help your momma, or other family members.

it sounds like a lot, but considering that is all you may get for that effort in you life, is a bit eye-opening
