House Money
Today, an excerpt from "Shaq Uncut: My Story" that I felt compelled to share:

One of the things I invested in when I first got to Orlando was some coin-operated car washes. We were doing really well, making a lot of money, but one day Lester called me up and told me the numbers weren’t matching up. The profits we should have had were not the same numbers that were being deposited in the bank.
"Don’t worry, Lester," I told him, but he was freaking out about it. He even flew to Orlando to discuss it with me. He calculated we were missing almost a quarter million dollars.
It took me awhile, but I finally came clean with him, I showed Lester my bedroom, where there was a whole bunch of wooden rain barrels full of quarters.
Lester said, “Shaquille, what the hell is this? Is this the missing money?”
"Yes", I admitted. "Lester, I can’t help it. I like seeing my money. Come here, run your fingers through all these quarters. It’s awesome."
