The new compasses were so bad that people often ended up in Canada or Mexico rather thanCalifornia.This, of course, is the origin of the expression, "He who has a Tates is lost!"

His last great possession was the Star of the Euphrates, the most valuable diamond in the ancient world.Desperate, he went to Croesus the pawnbroker, to ask for a loan. Croesus said, "I'll give you 100,000 dinars for it." "But I paid a million dinars for it," the King protested. "Don't you know who I am? I am the king!" Croesus replied, "....When you wish to pawn a Star, it makes no difference who you are."
