A snippet of Warren Buffet’s philosophy on wealth which I found insightful. Its from his biography The Snowball

“Wealth is just a bunch of claim checks on the activities of others in the future. You can use that wealth in any way that you want to. You can cash it in or give away. But the idea of passing wealth from generation to generation so that hundreds of your descendants can command the resources of other people simply because they came from the right womb flies in the face of a meritocratic society.”

Human innovation is amazing. Chilean police find a suitcase made of cocaine.  Detective Leandro Morales at the Santiago airport says the drug was not hidden in the luggage. This time the suitcases were the drug

Stop doing situps & crunches. They’re bad for your back. Consider the pushup and other core workouts.

GPS shoes help locate alzheimer’s patients.  I’m going to use these on my future daughter. 

Pissed that the new Apple macbooks and iphones no longer differentiate the elite?

“The new products also don’t show how special you are for paying the most to buy the best. The cheap models and the pricey ones are identical. Your crazy high-end 32GB iPhone 3GS looks just like that other guy’s $99 iPhone 3G…Maybe Apple is trying to create good design that works for anyone and everyone. I can respect that. Still, the question remains: Does this make rich people look like poor people, or poor people look like rich people? The privileged must know.”
