190. bully compounded interest

on the train the other morning, i calculated how much extra money i would have today if i had banked the money bullies took from me in eighth grade.
i used a simple compound interest formula over forty years.
the result, a sweet $24,339.16 in the pocket.
then i thought how i might broach the subject with them at our upcoming, forty-year, class reunion—the alive ones that is, specifically the alive ones who are on parole.
