    A friend sent this quiz, I thought I should share (just for your information) 


    In 1923, Who Was:
    1. President of the largest steel company?
    2. President of the largest gas company?
    3. President of the New York Stock Exchange?
    4. Greatest wheat speculator?
    5. President of the Bank of International Settlement?
    6. Great Bear of Wall Street?

    These men were considered some of the worlds most
    successful of their days. Now, 80 years later, the history book asks us, if we know what
    ultimately became of them.


    The Answers:
    > 1. The president of the largest steel company, Charles Schwab died a pauper.
    > 2. The president of the largest gas company, Edward Hopson, went insane.
    > 3. The president of the NYSE, Richard Whitney, was released from prison to die at home.
    > 4. The greatest wheat speculator, Arthur Cooger, died abroad, penniless.
    > 5. The president of the Bank of International Settlement, shot himself.
    > 6. The Great Bear of Wall Street, Cosabee Livermore, also committed suicide
     

    However, in that same year, 1923, the PGA Champion and the winner of the US Open was  Gene Sarazen.

    What became of him?
    > He played golf until he was 92, died in 1999 at the age of 95.
    > He was financially secure at the time of his death.
    > The Moral: F**k work. Play golf.


    The golf clubs are calling... Have a great weekend all  Zs
