In its website CNN Money quoted Billionaire and Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg encouraging high school graduates to pursue instead a profession like plumbing.

“A New York plumber and his son are multimillionaires after sitting on a winning Powerball ticket because they thought the jackpot had been won by a teacher. Anthony Perosi of Staten Island says he was on his way to do an inspection March 14 when he stopped at the 7-Eleven where he always buys lottery tickets when he is in the area. Perosi, 56, was at a bar a week later when another patron said the winning Powerball ticket had been won at that same 7-Eleven. The bartender, he says, told him it was a teacher who had won the $136 million jackpot.”

Plumbing Association. Another amazing but weird plumber story is about this Texan Plumber whose service truck was used in the bloody war in Syria.

Fox News uploaded in its website the report on how the extrimists have been using the plumber’s truck in their attacks in the said country. “An extremist group, Ansar al-Deen Front, posted the photo of its fighters aboard the Ford F-250 sometime on Monday. That prompted a flood of calls to Mark Oberholtzer, who owns Mark-1 Plumbing in Texas City, and has nothing to do with Syria’s bloody civil war…Oberholtzer told the paper that he traded in the truck three years ago. The Houston dealership he turned it over to, AutoNation, told KHOU.com that the truck was auctioned and was likely traded from owner to owner over the course of three years.”
