    Who was who in 1923 and what became of them...

    In1923, 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, 88 years later, the history books tell us what 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 winner of the worlds most important road race, the Isle of Man T.T., was Stanley Woods.

    What became of him?


    He won 10 T.T. races between1923and 1939,
    He lived on the Isle of Man and rode motorcycles all his life. He lapped the island circuit at 82 mph in 1957 (The Golden Jubilee) aged 54
    He was a wealthy man when he died aged 90.

    The Moral:


    Screw work.
    Ride motorcycles.

    I tried that. Everything was good until I needed a new tire and didn`t have the money for it.

    1. to 6. were all crooks to begin with, how do you think rich people become rich?

    Stanley Woods I would think is the same, he just knew when to quit ahead.
    ...And held deep like the words in my breath,
    I never sleep 'cause sleep is the cousin of death...

    I think it's remember to remember the caveat here...this applies only if you are good enough to win the Isle of Man T. T.

    I guess the message to take home is to make sure you take the time to enjoy the finer things in life, and by finer, I mean the things that make you come alive.
