In a move that rivals the enchantingly absurd setting of the death of composer Erik Satie who died sitting in a chair in Paris in a sparsely furnished room only equipped with an intricate series of wires to open the door and a wardrobe containing 12 identical gray velvet suits, Luis da Camara of Portugal has left his pretty large fortune to a selection of 70 random people.

The genius thing about this plan is that he actually made the will thirteen years ago by picking random people out of the phonebook which means he really stuck to his poetically absurd guns.
Or, he was just a bitter asshole who wanted to stick it to his family.

Either way, 70 randomly selected people were sent checks for around $US10,000 this week because he just died.
