Anyone here think they have a good chance of putting together the perfect bracket when March Madness comes around soon? Warren Buffett doesn’t think you have a good chance. In fact, Warren Buffett thinks your odds are so terrible that he is willing to write a $1 billion check to the person who comes up with a perfect NCAA tournament bracket, because when you are wealthy you can offer that kind of thing and mean it.
