    Hungarian brothers living in cave inherit $7B

    A nice rags to riches story for the holidays. I would like to read a follow-up in a couple years. Maybe this would be a family for Reality TV.

    Two homeless Hungarian brothers who have been living in a cave and selling discarded junk for a living are in line to inherit amost $7 billion from a long-lost German grandmother's fortune. Their sister, who lives in America, will also share in the inheritance.

    The fortune comes from the estate of a maternal grandmother who died recently in Germany. "We knew our mother came from a wealthy family but she was a difficult person and severed ties with them, and then later abandoned us and we lost touch with her and our father until she eventually died."

    Geza and his brother, Zsolt, who live in a cave outside Budapest, got the news from a charity worker who was contacted by lawyers for the estate.

    "If this all works out it will certainly make up for the life we have had until now — all we really had was each other — no women would look at us living in a cave," said Geza. "But with money, maybe we can find a partner and finally have a normal life." (Geza's age is quoted as 43, the others ages are not mentioned.)

    $7B should make many changes in their lifestyle, but I wouldn't characterize it as normal!
