21 Ways That Rich People Think Differently From the Poor

Average people think MONEY is the root of all evil. Rich people believe POVERTY is the root of all evil.

"The average person has been brainwashed to believe rich people are lucky or dishonest," Siebold writes.

That's why there's a certain shame that comes along with "getting rich" in lower-income communities.

"The world class knows that while having money doesn't guarantee happiness, it does make your life easier and more enjoyable."

From Steve Siebold, author of "How Rich People Think."

The Bath Salts Banker

The protestation is a familiar one to police officers: "My son (or, brother, husband, friend, neighbor, or what have you) would never do that!" And "that" refers to whatever affront to the commonweal the son (or brother, etc.) had committed to bring himself to the attention of the police. The cop's response most often goes something like this: "He apparently would, and he apparently did, which is why he's on his way to jail right now." To the cop, there are few human foibles that come as a great surprise.

But once in a great while there comes along a man whose downfall is so radically divergent from his ostensible station in life that even the most jaded police officer cannot help but look on and ask, "Who would have thought it?"

Who is the Most Invadiest Country in the World?

Short Answer: Britain.

A new study has found that at various times the British have invaded almost 90 per cent of the countries around the globe.

The analysis of the histories of the almost 200 countries in the world found only 22 which have never experienced an invasion by the British.

The 22 are Andorra, Belarus, Bolivia, Burundi, Central African Republic, Chad, Congo, Guatemala, Ivory Coast, Kyrgyzstan, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Mali, Marshall Islands, Monaco, Mongolia, Paraguay, Sao Tome and Principe, Sweden, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, and Vatican City.

Okay many of these are countries that no one really wants - but still why not grab a piece of Sweden, Guatemala, and maybe the Ivory Coast when you get the chance?
