I have this one on my list of all-time favorites. Nothing is more interesting that the life of simple people who don't busy themselves with the stockmarket, business school, or even electricity. They live in California, slip under the boats, and eat whatever God sends them. Great contrast for a bschool applicant with ambitions and desires to change to change the world and beat the strongest.

Favorites:
The logic; quite similar to that in the Tortilla Flat of striving for the greater "good" for a friend. I loved how the bums justify their crimes and glorify mistakes. Some paralells can be found in some corporate repots.

Nothing beats the frog hunting scene and the "new" monetary system.

I could not stop laughing while reading - one of the funniest and profound pieces.
