We have a winner! I love that bit in the movie - the bathrobe, the crashing waves, the HUGE phone. He's got it all! And yet...!

Reminds me of the time in Grade 10 business class (definitely in the top 3 stupidest classes in my school experience) when we, on the last day, watched Wall Street, as to learn about business ethics, but we ran out of time and the class was dismissed only just as Charlie Sheen was about to get arrested.

Alright, maybe I lied, and we watched until he encountered the police, and was obviously about to get arrested, but still it's a funny scenario to think about.

Don't let the sunny morning we had deceive you. Snow is moving into NW IL & spreading east quickly. It will begin in Rockford between 1-2 pm & in Chicago near or shortly after 3 pm. Plan ahead & allow much more extra travel time during the eve commute & be cautious. #ilwx #inwx pic.twitter.com/bhUYY9rZKC

Q: Do you own stock?

A: I have never owned a share of stock in my life. I do not eat my own cooking. Funny thing about money. If I started to worry about my own profit and loss, I would be less concentrated on my customersโ€™ well-being.

And I also have two children in college, so I donโ€™t have any money to buy stocks.
