Since the dawn of the modern age, there have been few great rulers who could say they controlled 10 billion worms and yet still didn't have enough, but Hy Hunter of Granada Hills is one such man.

He lives in a giant hilltop estate--compound is a better description--that he purchased 30 years ago, in part from earnings off the wiggle.
