Only 30 days to spend $30 million

The Rev. Brendan Powell Smith’s uncle had just died, leaving him a huge inheritance–but there’s just one catch: a codicil in his will states that Smith will only get his full $300 million inheritance if he can first spend $30 million in just 30 days without giving any money away or buying gifts for others - and if he fails, he keeps nothing. Reportedly, Smith intends to start buying lots of LEGO.
