Check out the new Gran Turismo 6 from Mercedes Benz. The latest in German engineering-the car is an absolute marvel.

> 585 Horse Power
> V8 Engine
> Max Torque 800 Newton meters
> Aluminum body with Carbon Fibers
> Ceramic Braking System
> Exhaust: eight tailpipes
> 3,053 pounds and 5.3 Lbs per hp

The car will be available on December 9, 2013 ... exclusively for the PlayStation 3 gaming console. Built to a 1:1 scale, Mercedes treated this like the real deal. I have to say, my video game playing has ground to a halt, but this sweet ride (along with Call of Duty) might have me pushing my son over and taking this bad boy for a spin. That's the beauty of video games: they can suck you in and make you believe, even for a moment. It makes you wish other things in life could be just like that (please don't email me about love).

What if investing in the stock market could be as much fun?

Life isn't a game, and time is something we can never get back, so when we use that time to earn money, it makes it more important than its transactional value. For many, it represents redemption, the future, security, or fear (if you don't have enough, or, if you have too much in the eyes of your government or neighbors). So, we don't like to play around with our money. We don't want to waste it, because we've wasted our time, which we hate to do-unless it's on a vacation, where the value of memories and that odd rash stay with us forever.

But, this cautious aura puts investors in an odd predicament of either going too slow to reach the finish line, or actually going too fast in hopes of crossing that checkered flag as soon as possible. The fact of the matter is that investors must attack the market as if zooming along a straightaway in the Gran Turismo 6 and, from time to time, tap the brakes as if making a hairpin turn in a bulky SUV. But, the secret to long-term success is the same as the secret to success in video games. These days, video games have a special seductive power known as RPG.
