‘A pool in the basement is a clear marker of wealth’: how the super-rich are digging Down Under

If you want to know why the towers of American capitalism are crumbling, I recommend reading 'The Creature from Jekyll Island' by G. Edward Griffin. 
~~ Robert Kiyosaki

The editors and co-creators are Benjamin Spall and Michael Xander, and the subtitle is How Successful People Start Every Day Inspired

Key points:

  • Liberal MP Andrew Hastie claimed in Parliament yesterday that Chau Chak Wing funded the bribery of a UN official
  • Malcolm Turnbull says he had no forewarning of Mr Hastie's speech, and that it was not fresh information
  • Mr Hastie claimed Dr Chau had donated more than $4 million to the Liberal and Labor parties since 2004

They were generous enough to include a contribution from me, on my theory of how to get ready in the morning for the day to come:
I make sure I’ve already showered.  Too many people waste some of their most productive morning time showering.  Showering relaxes you and calms you down — why should that happen in the morning?  I prefer to enjoy my shower during the evening, when I know I’m winding down in any case.
And here is Scott Adams on related topics, from the same book:
I’m a trained hypnotist, and when I learned to do hypnosis I learned that self-hypnosis, if you’re trained to do it, is more effective and faster than meditation.
