Nebraska Teens Make Headlines With Stealthy Paul McCartney, Warren Buffett Selfie


Sir Paul McCartney Warren Buffett

Internet fame may not exactly be hard to come by these days but it's hard to begrudge limelight to the snap-happy antics of a few rather cheeky Nebraskan teens who made the most of celebrities being in town.

Tom White, Luke Koester and Jacob Murray wasted no time in cementing the moment when they spotted Sir Paul McCartney and Warren Buffett chilling on a bench in Dundee. The musician and the Omaha-based billionaire, who dined together during their evening in Dundee, appear to notice the photo being taken but do not object to the cheery fans.

Murray shared the image on Twitter on Saturday night, writing "Best picture of the night with @WarrenBuffett and @Paul McCartney goes to Tom White!" Meanwhile Koester later uploaded a photograph of McCartney walking down the street. "Just saw Paul McCartney in Dundee! My night is awesome!!!!!" he wrote before lamenting "Too bad he couldn't sign my Abby Road vinyl :/"

George Lucas Donation To Put Him Amongst History's Greatest Philanthropists


George Lucas Warren Buffett Bill Gates

George Lucas' donation of over half the $4 billion from the Disney deal will see him considered amongst the most generous philanthropists of all time. After announcing that he had sold LucasFilm to Disney, a spokesperson told the Hollywood Reporter that Lucas has expressed his intention to donate the majority of the proceeds to his philanthropic endeavours. 

Though it's not clear how much Lucas will take from the deal personally, it's likely to be billions. He signed on to Bill Gates and Warren Buffett's Giving Pledge back in 2010 and promised to give away at least half of his wealth by the time of his death. In his pledge letter, the legendary director and producer wrote, "I am dedicating the majority of my wealth to improving education. It is the key to the survival of the human race. We have to plan for our collective future - and the first step begins with the social, emotional, and intellectual tools we provide to our children." Though his couple of billion won't see Lucas reach the heady philanthropic heights of Gates and Buffett (who have both donated more than $45 billion combined), the filmmaker is certainly now amongst the top tier of givers. Elsewhere, George Soros has given over $8 billion, while Intel founder Gordon Moore has handed over $6 billion to worthy causes. The wealthiest man in the world, Carlos Slim Helu, has given $4 billion, according to Forbes.

Lucas founded the George Lucas Educational Foundation and the website Edutopia to reform and improve K-12 education.
