How to Become a Billionaire

Framing John Delorean: Money, power, politics, drugs, scandal, and fast cars. Discover the untold story of the controversial automaker’s meteoric rise and shocking fall.

As I was writing the preceding post about the other John DeLorean movie, Driven, I stumbled across this second film.  Personally, I think Lee Pace was a better choice for the lead than Baldwin since both DeLorean and Pace were/are tall and slim, 6’4″ and 6’5″ respectively, whereas Baldwin is too short and heavyset for the role.

Even if you don’t know who John DeLorean was, you probably know his famous car used for time travel in the Back to the Future movies.  After leaving GM where he had been a senior officer, he started his own company, DeLorean Motors, to build and sell the DeLorean sports car.  The company quickly found itself in a cash flow crunch, and as legend has it, John attempted to raise $30 million by doing a coke deal.  The big question is did he come up with the idea or was he the victim of an FBI sting operation?

Early SAS unit in the Sahara during WW II.

These three words pretty much sum up the secret to success in both business and romance. Are you prepared to take smart calculated gambles?

The SAS were arguably the first true special forces of the 20th century and were instrumental in the creation of similar units such as Navy Seals, Green Berets, Delta Force, Russian Spetsnaz, etc. They initially operated in North Africa during the early days of WW II fighting against the German Afrika Korps and Italian Army.

One of my favorite YouTubers, LindyBeige, has just created a video about the unit’s creation and early days.
