A forward I came across


Paul Smith, the man with extraordinary talent was born in Philadelphia on September 21, 1921 with severe cerebral palsy. 

Not only had Paul beaten the odds of a life with spastic cerebral palsy, a disability that impeded his speech & mobility but also taught himself to become a master artist as well as a terrific chess player even after being devoid of a formal education as a child.

'When typing, Paul used his left hand to steady his right one. Since he couldn't press two keys at the same time, he almost always locked the shift key down and made his pictures using the symbols at the top of the number keys. In other words, his pictures were based on these characters .... @ # $ % ^ & * ( ) _ .

Across seven decades, Paul created hundreds of pictures. He often gave the originals away. Sometimes, but not always, he kept or received a copy for his own records.
As his mastery of the typewriter grew, he developed techniques to create shadings, colors, and textures that made his work resemble pencil or charcoal drawings.'

This great man passed away on 
June 25, 2007, but left behind a collection of his amazing artwork that will be an inspiration for many.

Why Google has beta tag for most of its product ??

It turns out that Google doesn't think about or use the word beta the way that most of the rest of us have always done … and still do. We'll dissect that explanation in a moment, but first more about the tally.

"Everyone knows Google is fond of the beta label on its products, but we wanted some actual numbers, so we went through all of Google's products to see how many of them are in beta," Pingdom analyst Peter Alguacil tells me. "It turned out to be a whopping 45%. As far as we know, there is no other company that does this to the extent that Google does."

Interesting Article I came across about Marriage and Investment


 Reply given by JP Morgan...to a young pretty girl
who wanted to marry a richest person

A young and pretty lady posted this on a popular forum:


Title: What should I do to marry a rich guy?


I'm going to be honest of what I'm going to say here. I'm 25 this year. I'm
very pretty, have style and good taste. I wish to marry a guy with $500k
annual salary or above. You might say that I'm greedy, but an annual salary
of $1M is considered only as middle class in New York . My requirement is
not high. Is there anyone in this forum who has an income of $500k annual
salary? Are you all married? I wanted to ask: what should I do to marry
rich persons like you? Among those I've dated, the richest is $250k annual
income, and it seems that this is my upper limit. If someone is going to
move into high cost residential area on the west of New York City Garden (
? ) , $250k annual income is not enough.
I'm here humbly to ask a few questions:
1) Where do most rich bachelors hang out? (Please list down the names and
addresses of bars, restaurant, gym)
2) Which age group should I target?
3) Why most wives of the riches is only average-looking? I've met a few
girls who doesn't have looks and are not interesting, but
they are able to marry rich guys
4) How do you decide who can be your wife, and who can only be your
girlfriend? (my target now is to get married)


Ms. Pretty


Awesome reply:


Dear Ms. Pretty,
I have read your post with great interest. Guess there are lots of girls
out there who have similar questions like yours. Please allow me to analyse
your situation as a professional investor. My annual income is more than
$500k, which meets your requirement, so I hope everyone believes that I'm
not wasting time here. From the standpoint of a business person, it is a
bad decision to marry you.. The answer is very simple, so let me explain.
Put the details aside, what you're trying to do is an exchange of 'beauty'
and 'money': Person A provides beauty, and Person B pays for it, fair and
square. However, there's a deadly problem here, your beauty will fade, but
my money will not be gone without any good reason. The fact is, my income
might increase from year to year, but you can't be prettier year after
year. Hence from the viewpoint of economics, I am an appreciation asset,
and you are a depreciation asset. It's not just normal depreciation, but
exponential depreciation. If that is your only asset, your value will be
much worried 10 years later.
By the terms we use in Wall Street, every trading has a position, dating
with you is also a 'trading position'. If the trade value dropped we will
sell it and it is not a good idea to keep it for long term - same goes with
the marriage that you wanted. It might be cruel to say this, but in order
to make a wiser decision any assets with great depreciation value will be
sold or 'leased'. Anyone with over $500k annual income is not a fool; we
would only date you, but will not marry you. I would advice that you forget
looking for any clues to marry a rich guy. And by the way, you could make
yourself to become a rich person with $500k annual income. This has better
chance than finding a rich fool.


Hope this reply helps. If you are interested in 'leasing' services, do
contact me...
signed,
CEO
J.P. Morgan
