So then why does all the money go to Hogan? Why doesn't $5M go to Hogan and $110M get divided among a variety of charities?

The charities are not the ones harmed. Hulk Hogan was harmed. If you feel the charities should be getting some of the money, please get out your checkbook and give them the amount your conscience dictates. Better yet, please pay $100 million to the charity of your choice.

He developed it on company time, and it was thus company property. Who is John Galt?

than a floating platform in the sea. While the latest launch is successful, they have to scrap the landing attempt due to choppy sea. NASA is paying for the launch, and not for the booster recovery.
