if you are an engineer, you know a LOT of math........

that is called Logability.

"Stinking Rich" algorithum.

study "Foundations" it is where the RIch avoid ALL TAXES. due to greed

he was greedy before getting the money, but not after.

na, give me lots of $$ and I'll let you know how it feels.....

you can make a metric that combineds lots of factors, then call up the guy and ask him on a scale of 1 to 10 how happy or physotic he is.

add some more factors....
