I realized that I do a lot of Wikipedia searches each week looking up random stuff. I thought it would be interesting to document some of them each week.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estate_tax_in_the_United_States - If you gift too much money in a year (each year is different depending on the current law), the excess comes out of a gift tax exemption (after 2011, unless laws change, has a lifetime maximum of $1 million) which in turn is subtracted from the estate tax exemption; During 2010, the estate tax in the US has been repealed but will be reinstated in 2011 automatically if no action from Congress is taken
