Did he get it all together in time?


He drove a 1993 Volvo 240, flew only economy class, and always used both sides of a piece of paper. He reportedly also recycled tea bags and was known to pocket the salt and pepper packets at restaurants.

Except that I drove a 1990 Toyota Camry, I did all of the above but never even got close to the US$58.7 billion Ingvar Kamprad made before he died last month. He was, of course, the founder and owner of IKEA which is an acronym made up of the initials of his name (Ingvar Kamprad) plus those of Elmtaryd, the family farm where he was born, and the nearby village Agunnaryd where he was raised.

I just hope he got it all together in time.


P.S. Only a fool would buy IKEA furniture. Instead, just download the assembly instructions and keep emailing their service department to say that you're missing a piece until they've shipped you all the pieces over a six-month period.
