I can pretty much guarantee that if someone offered me $10 billion for something (even in USD), I would take it, regardless of the actual worth of the thing. ($100 billion organization (or whatever) + huge amount of complications in running said organization) < ($10 billion + no worries). I guess I just settle for things.

[put at-character here]Bill
In simple words, you're saying you'd trade a whole lot more than 10B dollars, for 10B dollars, just to get worries off your back.
Well, i bet 10B dollars the media or the press won't leave you for at least a whole year, just for getting an interview with the most craziest man in the world, who gave up his entire fortune (and yes, Google is certainly a fortune) for just 10B dollars..

There was a popular Hollywood movie about that subject starring Demi Moore and Robert Redfort. The prize was only 1 million though :)
