Default Today's lesson: Get hit by a car. Get 82000 dollars

Hey guys,
I'm in high school. Wen I was in middle school, I was hit by a car in Houston, Texas while running in cross country practice a my middle school. Here is a link:

HISD track coach, two students hurt in auto-pedestrian in Montrose area | abc13.com

Anyway, that was a long time ago. Now, after a very long time, I am approaching my 18th birthday, in which I will receive the full payment from the driver of the car. With tax deducted, and all expenses paid, 82,029 dollars will be deposited to my bank account. The sum however even so large, is nothing compared to the other runners payment: 200000 dollars (about). I will probably use the money for some sort of college payment, but also, I will get a sweet snowboarding setup.

Lesson: get hit by a car, get money.

Sub lesson: oh yes, don't die.

I'm not sure which is more painful, getting hit by a car to get money, or working for a living.
Tough call...

They're both young?

DC isn't trying to troll.

That sub lesson is probably the most important lesson. Can't spend that cash if you're 6 feet under.

Hold up, I dislocate both my hips in a bus accident due to poor safety measures and I don't get a dime, but you get hit by a car and get paid? I'm calling my lawyer, time to sue someone.
