It would be pretty easy to learn if that is true.

Prosecution: "Prince Andrew you claimed that you couldn't be the man in question because you don't sweat, is that correct?"

Andrew: "That is correct"

Prosecution: "Well, here we have a treadmill, care to jog on it for 10 minutes?"

Crown Estate

The Crown Estate is a collection of lands and holdings in the United Kingdom belonging to the British monarch as a corporation sole, making it "the sovereign's public estate", which is neither government property nor part of the monarch's private estate. The sovereign is not involved with the management or administration of the estate, and exercises only very limited control of its affairs. Instead, the estate's extensive portfolio is overseen by a semi-independent, incorporated public body headed by the Crown Estate Commissioners, who exercise "the powers of ownership" of the estate, although they are not "owners in their own right".

That's not how you get rich. That's how you get like 30-40 % richer if you do it really well. (made up number but you get the idea) but real rich is not 30 or even 300% richer. Most people would need more like 30 000%.

What are you going to do? Refrain from buying 10 000 sodas at gas stations per day? Avoid paying over price for two apartments a week?

Bull.

You get rich by being lucky or already rich. Even those who got lucky without developing some kind of megalomania, generally fall for survivorship bias and start trying to convince others they should "just go for it" because they honestly believe that is the unique thing about how they got rich. The people who grew up rich and connected are just all really out of touch and often think a car, a house, 10k a month, and introduction to powerful people is the "nothing" normal people talk about when listing what they got from their parents.

An American judge is currently deciding whether a civil case brought by Giuffre against the Duke in New York should go ahead. Prince Andrew's lawyers argue he can't be tried as he is covered by a deal made in 2009 between Epstein and Giuffre.

The deal, released publicly earlier this month, shows that Giuffre was paid US$500,000 by the now-dead sex offender Epstein to end a claim for damages. She also agreed not to bring any cases against other "potential defendants"; whether that applies to Prince Andrew, who is not named in the deal, is what is in question.

Sickening, this world’s fucked
