New York has its new rich kids from the block as a generous Manhattan millionaire shared a resounding amount to the most unexpected circle of favorites after dying from a fall.
The 85-year-old businessman and owner of the 20-room apartment on Fifth Avenue featuring luxurious items including an emperor’s rug from Beijing’s Forbidden Palace, left a hefty amount to two of his New York favorite food servers in the popular Donohue’s Steak House on Lexington Avenue near East 64th Street. Although clueless on the complete names, the will specifically referred the recipients of $50,000 each to be “Maureen at Donohue’s” and “Maureen-at-Donohue’s Niece Maureen” of which among its distinguished diners include Bruce Springsteen and Tom Hanks.
Robert Ellsworth was known as the “King of Ming” because he was a leading authority on furniture from the Ming dynasty.
Donohue employee Juan Carlos Padiloa recalled Ellsworth of always leaving a 20% tip to every typical order of either a grilled cheese with bacon for lunch (usually $60 that will then shoot up to $80) or a sirloin steak for dinner (worth $125 that will typically increase to $220).
“I just couldn’t believe it. I didn’t expect anything. I had known him for 53 years — my entire life”, said 53-year-old Maureen Donohue-Peters. Meanwhile, another recipient named Maureen Barrie, 28, described Ellsworth as a wonderful man and a dear friend.
Maureen Donohue-Peters was referred to in Robert Ellsworth’s will as “Maureen at Donohue’s”.
Being the leading furniture authority from the Ming dynasty, the “King of Ming” was reported to leave at least an estimated $200 million overall. With no one else to shower his pennies with, his personal chef (also his friend over 40 years) also reportedly took home $10 million, jewelry, real estate and a dog.
Meanwhile, his famous thresholds of collective art and furniture will be awarded to New York University, Harvard University, Yale University and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Russian Brat Knocked Out by Offended Man After He Offered Him Money to Drink Urine.
Who wouldn’t do anything for money? But given the public humility and ridicule, will your pride and dignity still come with a price tag?
Who wouldn't do anything for money? As desperate as it may sound, most probably nine out of 10 would definitely do anything crazy in exchange of a bag of pennies. But given the public humility and ridicule, will your pride and dignity still come with a price tag?
Apparently, not all shares the same sentiments with regards to money matters. This is most certainly true for a random guy who single-handedly knocked out a rich 16-year-old Russian kid after being offered of $305 in exchange of a glass of his own urine.

The Alchemist’s Letter, A Tragic Tale That Reminds Us The Price Of Pursuing Wealth
An amazing yet tragic tale about an alchemist who invented a machine that can transform any metal into gold.
For many centuries, alchemists have devoted their time, energy, and knowledge in search of the "Philosopher's Stone" otherwise known as "The Sword in the Stone" or "The White Stone by the River", a mythical substance that can turn ordinary metal into pure gold. It is also believed that the stone can provide ultimate enlightenment and immortality.
These alchemists are often illustrated as men who seriously and obsessively work in front of several tubes and flasks, mixing elements and going through great lengths just to create the elusive material. Much like any ordinary men in this modern world, the alchemist in this heartwarming, short story directed by Carlos Stevens, got caught up in his work that he started to neglect his wife and son. His desire for gold and prestige eventually changed him. And although he was finally able to invent the machine that can successfully transform a metal into the purest form of gold, he had to pay a huge price.

More than seeing their physical self change, their emotional side got the best of them!
Growing old is inevitable, and part of the rapid changes are the physical alterations that we have to go through with time. Even though we have all the medical advancements available for our disposal, no age-defying cream can ever hide our age. After all, it is but natural to change and grow old.
We saw a video made by Field Day, which featured a couple who took the risk of transforming themselves into their 50, 70 and 90 year-old selves. Their reactions were priceless! At first, they were laughing at each others' transformations, but soon, tears kept on flowing as they become emotional with their surge of personal realizations.
