Certain studies have disclosed that the top 100 richest people in the world hold about one half the total wealth, with the rest split amongst the remaining 7.6 billion people. The most rudimentary conclusion generated from this research is that a huge percentage of people fall into 2 categories on the lower end: semi-poor and piss-poor. Although only a very small percentage (about 1%) were born with a silver spoon in their mouth, about 3 billion souls live on less than $2.50 per day. That is a huge amount of unfortunates that have inherited a mouth full of used plastic spoons that are laced with a fecal scum. To keep this group motivated, the company CEO’s constantly expose them to media that shows the lifestyles of the rich and famous, thereby instilling some distant hope that they too can someday experience these pleasures. It is a far-fetched fantasy that has been called WAITING FOR YOUR SHIP TO COME IN. It gets people out of bed in the morning to go to some dead-end job, and toil relentlessly, so that someday all this will be rewarded. Stories abound about individuals who one day woke up and, all of a sudden, bam, they’re filthy rich. Whether it be a lottery winner, an unknown deceased rich uncle, or the extremely wealthy company owner who suddenly recognized your incredible talent to make him rich and decided to cut you in. You are then flown to the lavish resort called Atlantis on a private jet and are limousined to the marina to see your brand new 300-foot yacht sail into the harbor. The commander, wearing a turtleneck sweater with a white captain’s hat beckons you to come down to the pier as he heads the vessel towards the dock. As the chrome craft pulls alongside the pier, you are positioned at the incoming bow with a sea wall just directly behind you. The 400-ton dream comes in a tad too fast and slowly impales your exploding and blood-spraying body against the non-yielding concrete barrier. Your ship has finally come in. Lucky you.
