Writing Prompt

What would I do if I had $10 million but still had to work 40 hours a week? (Financial Samurai)

Cliché, I know. But there is a lot of truth in cliché’s, in particular this one. The goal of life is not to relax on beach, sipping mojitos all day. The purpose is to find something you love that also adds value to the world. When you do that it will not only bring you fulfillment but it will also help those around you.

Weird Laws

Men Must Wear Speedos on French Beaches

Did you think the French just really liked their Speedos? Actually, its French law that men do not wear loose-fitting swim trunks on beaches, swimming pools and other public places where a swimsuit is required attire.

The law wasn't for safety, but rather that men wouldn't dare walk around town in a Speedo, so if he wears a Speedo in the water, it surely would be cleaner than something he may have been wearing all day long.

This need to avoid clothing that could have been worn throughout the day also extends to T-shirts; you'll need to lose those as fast as your surfer shorts.
