Rich Day, Poor Day and money can’t buy you common sense

Today I heard an awful screeching of tyres near my fence. I immediately jumped onto my AI CCTV footage and caught this hoon (a colloquial term for a road hooligan)…one day he is going to overcook it and come through my pool fence. I just hope and pray that nobody will be home swimming when he does. Point is, it is a very expensive car driven by somebody with very little common sense, see a screenshot from the video here:

A “Hoon” (a hooligan) doing “donuts” in a busy intersection – genius!

Notice the spin tracks after one revolution by this hoon caught on video.

As usual this got me thinking, this time about Robert Kyosaki’s book and the lesson in that book, which is that – rich people aren’t necessarily the brightest in society.

Take this fellow in the photo below he told me that he does “concreting” for a living, which requires a 6 month certificate to enable a person to do that in Australia. I consider myself a reasonably educated person, I am an Engineer with 2 master’s degrees and a Ph.D but I am not rich in the financial sense (a bit like Robert Kyosaki’s one father in his celebrated book entitled, Rich Dad, Poor Dad). This tradesman is clearly doing well and ‘good on him‘ for that (no ill feeling from me – only respect for what he has accomplished in one area of life). However, the point is, never assume that somebody driving a brand new Ferrari is a brain surgeon or a high-powered invest banker, etc. Wealth thus has very little to do with ones intelligence or common sense. A good lesson to bear in mind.

‘Tradies’ (tradesmen) do very well in Australia

The most complex machine on earth, can you guess what it is?

A little bit of trivia for you…

Let’s see you might have guessed on of the following:

* Facebook’s artificial intelligence algorithm that feeds off people’s desires only to serve them a stronger dose of what they want. Watch The Social Dilemma Doco on Netflix to understand what I am referring to.

The Social Dilemma

* Space flight, the popularised “Rocket Science” which attribute those that practise this as geniuses.

* Robots performing brain implants, see Elon Musk’s brain implants device to fix medical conditions here:

Actually you would be completely mistaken it is actually the power network! You didn’t think of that as a first guess right? Well it is, based on the mathematical models that describe it and the very complex interactions of everything that connects to it.

Just a small portion of the mathematics that describes the functioning of the power system

Dried Banana – make your own!

You may no doubt have been following all the food desiccator evolutions on this blog!

We started by putting a incandescent heat lamp and a desk fan in a plastic box with some holes drilled therein for ventilation, this was revision 1. The latest unit uses a bathroom venting fan and complimentary vent plus Arlec Bluetooth hub+temp&humidity sensor + switched plug socket. This all in a food grade plastic box with a basket that fits snuggly therein from which to hang the paper-clips. Recall these were bent into an S-shape for hanging up the meat to make either Biltong or Jerky.

The basket can have some aluminium fly-screen laid into it or shade-cloth laid into that basket and then fruit can be laid thereon to dry. I did that with a couple of sliced bananas and think this is my second most favourite snack, after biltong!

Yummy dried banana on a shade cloth laid in the basket.

The ‘secret sauce’ controller is a controller that can switch the heat source every few seconds, giving better control in making your dried foods. It also allows all interactions via Bluetooth from your mobile phone and if you connect to your local Wifi will show progress on a webpage, how cool is that! It also uses RF to control a plug socket so no electrical connections required. This is the state-of-the-art. If you want to buy a plug and controller it costs $100. Leave a comment we will get your details for an order. You are really going to love it! ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒ

Buy this Bluetooth, secret-sauce controller which controls a plug socket.
