Rich vs Poor
Poor People have BIG TVs…Rich people have BIG LIBRARIES.
Do you still even watch TV?
Why? What pleasure do you get from watching your “Favorite Show?” Or, what do you have to click to get your Netflix “Fix”? Why exactly is it your “favorite”? I mean, what do you get out of it?
You know that TV used to be called the “Boob Tube” for a reason…
… and NOT the good kind of Boob, if you know what I mean.
The “Boob” like that guy you know that still uses a “Yahoo” email address. I never could figure out why someone would choose to be known as [email protected]
Whenever I met someone who had a Yahoo.com email address, my preconceived notion of them always proved out. I always thought, “Man, does this Bozo even know what a Yahoo is”?
Haha. When you point out the meaning of what a “Yahoo” is to these Yahoo email users, the reactions are pure gold. I’m not kidding. They either act in shocked disbelief, or they just try to brush it off like its meaningless and doesn’t matter to them.
Proves once again what a Yahoo these people really are. I have fired clients and stopped buying from anyone with a Yahoo address. I’m sure I’m not the only one.
Would you consider doing any business with a “Yahoo”? (but I bet they’ve got a BIG TV)
Brett R, one of the most successful guys I know in Internet Marketing, earns 7 figures, HE STILL HAS A YAHOO Email address. (and he ALWAYS uses “Your” instead of “You’re, BTW”)
I stopped buying from him. Every time one of his new pitches hit my mailbox and I saw the Yahoo address and the misspelling of “You’re” it just pissed me off to no end. I refused to buy anything else from him. I’ve been on his list for years.
Not only is the name, Yahoo, a loser’s name, as Merriam-Webster points out, but the disastrous negotiation style of Jerry Yang, the co-Founder, and Marissa Meyer, the final CEO, cost shareholders tens of billions.
(Yang’s early stake in AliBaba bailed out his reputation, somewhat, because the $1Billion Yang gambled in the very early AliBaba days became essentially the entire value of Yahoo) In other words, Yahoo became “worthless” just like the name.
I hope you don’t own a Verizon phone. Dump it fast. It’s already jinxed! Together with buying the bones of Yahoo, Verizon also bought the skeleton of AOL.
You’re probably too young to remember, but in the early 90s, you couldn’t go anywhere-even your own mailbox-without getting Spammed by AOL Discs and CDs. They were everywhere. Bundled inside most magazines, etc.
Hey, check your TV listings for reruns of the 3 Stooges for a preview of what this comedic troika is going to look like. Verizon, Yahoo & AOL. The episode will be titled, “The Stooges at Verizon blow 10 Billion Buckeroos.”
Oh, you thought I forgot about …Rich people having big libraries?
Not a chance. I’m looking at mine in my home office, right now as I craft these words.
I wouldn’t call myself “rich” financially, (min $10mil) but the riches and gold nuggets I have harvested from the books I have bought and borrowed are priceless and have helped me lead a full life with no regrets.
…and I’m Not Done, YET!
