IRISH ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR
With the mid term holidays looming next week, I was scraping the bottom of the drawers working out how to raise some spare cash.
I have of course been completely outclassed by a truly inspirational person, who shows a level of Entrepreneurial spirit, if not accomplishment, at least on a par with the late Steve Jobs.
A man from
has been jailed after an experiment in which he attempted to turn his own feces into gold went wrong and started a fire in a block of flats. Northern Ireland
Paul Moran will now serve three months in jail and a further 12 months on license after the failed experiment caused a fire at his Housing Executive home in Derrin Park, Ennis Killen.
Moran admitted arson and endangering the lives of others in the fire, which reportedly caused over £3,000 worth of damage.
It is thought that as part of the bizarre experiment Moran left his feces, along with other waste products such as fertilizer, on a heater.
In his ruling Judge McFarland told Moran: “Rather bizarrely you were attempting to make gold from human feces and waste products.
“It was an interesting experiment to fulfill the alchemist’s dream, but wasn’t going to succeed.”
This should give inspiration also to our global financial leaders, who have almost succeeded in reverse engineering the process.
Certainly they have succeeded with the USD the EUR and CHF but so far they have failed miserably with Gold.
However failure for these people will probably be rewarded not by a prison sentence but by a Nobel prize for Economics!!!!!
