  1. I’ve been a victim of armed robbery on three occasions, once as a late night Pharmacy Assistant, and twice as a Bank Teller. The pharmacy robber was never caught. Five bikies were convicted for the first bank robbery, and three high school students were convicted for the second bank robbery.

  2. I know a guy who robbed a bank in 1999. The cops never caught up with him and I certainly wasn’t going to tell them anything. The bank is still there and making billions of dollars in profits.

    Leonard Snart on The Flash taught me all I need to know:

    “There are only four rules you need to remember:

    1- Make the plan.
    2- Execute the plan.
    3- Expect the plan to go off the rails.
    4- Throw away the plan.”

    This also applies to setting goals in life.

  4. >> the rules of How To Rob A Bank from the perpetrators <<

    I'll go out on a limb and say none of these people got away with it. Therefore the program might actually be How Not To Rob A Bank.
