Recently, i’ve been pretty much fascinated with reading news on the media, to a certain extend, don’t you agree with me that we spend most of our time on our phones surfing the web then anything else.
On my recent reads on BBC News, i was appalled to read about how can one earn 4.1 Million USD in less than a week?!
Yes, you’re not seeing things! it’s 4.1Million USD a week!
I think it really sets Warren Buffet into deep thoughts of such an investment!
If by now you’re thinking that it’s a scam, NO you’re wrong!
Well… It’s not a scam if you could live with drinking your own URINE!
That’s the story of a forgotten detainee in San Diego. Housed in a 5-by-10-foot cell that has no windows in the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) San Diego headquarters, Mr Chong was one of the nine detainees that was brought back by the authorities during a drug raid in April 2012.
For four-and-a-half-days, he was trapped in his cell with no food, water or any forms living necessities except for his own urine to drink from.
Mr Chong said he thought he was forgotten by mistake.
“It sounded like it was an accident – a really, really bad, horrible accident,” he said.
The 5-by-10-foot (1.5-3m) cell had no windows and Mr Chong had no food or water while he was trapped inside for four-and-a-half days.
Mr Chong said he started hallucinating on the third day.
He urinated on a metal bench so he could have something to drink. He also unsuccessfully tried to set off a fire sprinkler to draw attention of the DEA authorities.
“I didn’t just sit there quietly. I was kicking the door yelling,” he was quoted as saying by the Associated Press news agency.
“I even put some shoestrings, shoelaces through the crack of the door for visual signs. I didn’t stay still, no, I was screaming.”
Despite his lack of food and water, he could still carve out the word “S” from his broken spectacles, supposedly a farewell message that he was originally gonna carve out in the cell to his Mum – “Sorry Mum”
The incident prompted the head of the DEA to issue a public apology last May, saying he was “deeply troubled” by the incident.
Mr Chong’s lawyer said that as a result of the incident the DEA had introduced new policies for detention, including checking cells daily and installing cameras inside them.
Mr Chong, now an economics student at the University of California, says he plans to buy his parents a house.
So are you in for this challenge of earning 4.1Million USD in less than a week?
Have a great week!
