Posthumous Charity

TAE's Law of Posthumous Charity: wealthy individuals who only donate the bulk of their riches to charity after their death so that they can continue their rockstar lifestyle up until that point garner no friends in Heaven for their "selflessness."

Paul Allen, has been philanthropic for decades. However, his promise, like Buffett's and Gates', is a posthumous one. TAE remains cynical.
