In the spirit of the 'self help' books and other people who 'know all the answers' and are now sharing it with others, I offer the following free of charge. Please offer your own.

* If you want to make money, favour jobs that offer more money rather than less.
* When playing poker, try to get all your good cards the first time around.
* It is not a good idea to run people over.
* If you must take something with asking, make sure you own it first.
* When betting, pick the horse that wins.
* Don't do things that are bad for your health.

    It's from a "song", Junior; what we used to have, back in the day, before you kids came along with that rhythmic extravasation you call music. Before your time. Don't expect you to understand. Put your earbuds back in and go back to your Fiddy Cent.
