How to retire early

Finally, a video and book describing how to do it...

Re: How to retire early

Dory, Yakers posted a link to this clip a while back...
http://early-retirement.org/forums/i...4478#msg104478
...but yours is considerably more browser-friendly.

It's been recommended the link to the clip be placed in the "Best Of" forum, and I think it is deserving of that honor. For this forum, a true classic...

Anyone else think it should go into "Best Of"?

I second that it should go in Best Of.

I have to forward that to some friends, they could sooooo do that commercial and they wouldn't be acting.

Yeah, I guess it ought to be in "The Best Of."
At least the math experts will like it, but I'm afraid others will be turned off by the complexity*

I, too, found the original link gone. But I found this cool video of a stable robot mule.
