How To Get A Million Dollar Business Out of Thin Air

The post I am going to link to below is probably the best thing I have read in the previous year (if not longer). The headline caught my attention on a social bookmarking site, and once I started reading it I couldn’t step (plus I was laughing out loud all along).

First of all you’ll find the guy is a brilliant writer (in fact I recommend subscribing to his blog). But the story itself is frigging amazing, and it shows that anything is possible if you are willing to go and get it. The post is titled How I Screwed Yasser Arafat out of $2mm (and lost $100mm in the process), and here is its first paragraph:

I needed to make one hundred million dollars pretty fast. You know how it is. There are bills to pay. There are things you want to do in life. I wanted, for instance, to work as a cashier in a bookstore. But with a twist. I would own the bookstore. I wanted to do a 90 second ad in the SuperBowl which would just be me walking around for 90 seconds saying and doing nothing. People would argue afterwards, “he could’ve used that money for charity. How selfish!” But I wouldn’t care. It was my money and I could do what I want with it. I would be teaching this grand lesson to all the people watching the Superbowl. I had no other specific desires about what I would do with one hundred million dollars. Just those two. But I knew more things would come.
