Brilliant ideas come at 4:00 am.

Have you ever heard the story of how the Rolling Stones got the song Satisfaction?

Keith Richards woke up in the middle of the night with the riff in his head. And somehow recorded it before passing out in a drunken stupor.

Have you ever heard where I figured out how to beat the casinos at roulette?

It was was brilliant...I was so excited! I tossed and turned after coming up with it. Finally I called Cousin Saul. We were gonna kick Atlantic City arse!

Saul quickly figured out what was wrong with my plan. (The casinos set betting limits...otherwise I had them)


Last night I woke up with this other brilliant idea!

Borderline genius!

I was too tired to jot it down...but awake enough to remember it.

The next time I went a plane trip I would buy a huge box of pens.

About an hour into the trip I would take said box of pens and walk down the aisle handing them out to the happy crowd.


The song Satisfaction is better than me handing out a box of pens on a plane.

Handing out pens on a plane was brilliant at 4:00am.

Give a man a pen, he writes for an evening, teach a man to buy his own pen...

Ya walk through handing out $10 bills, people will be even happier. I thought that up at 5:00 this morning. (More brilliant ideas come then. Set your clock.)

I feel bad about telling you this now...but I need to come clean. I made all of my millions using your roulette scheme. I beat the casinos using your late night/early morning dream.

Me too. It was a really, really good Roulette plan.
