The help stated here doesn't seem all that different.

Then again, if you give someone enough money to go to college, they'll go to college. If you give them enough money to make them think they don't need to go to college, they won't. Perhaps giving them less money changes it.

Here's a quadrillion [currency]. Solve suffering.

Here's a billion [currency].

Here's a million [currency]. You're rich!

Here's a hundred thousand [currency]. Make something of yourself - I suggest college or a start-up. Go.
