Re: New investment in?

Heh. You arent going to start up on paper towels now, are you? THERES a 12 step program waiting to happen.

Wait until you see the contract. If a country changes government due to coup, it is then considered a new country and the 100k is due again.

In some parts of the world this could generate as much as one...millllllion...dollars a year for me. I cant wait!!

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.

Re: New investment in?

There is a franchise charge of $100k per country serviced, but the returns on investment and benefits are obvious.

I'll await your check.

No problem! But in the interests of time, paperwork, competitive edge (BEWARE C.D.S. [Chinese Dryer Sheets])! and host country diplomacy; I've taken the liberty of subtracting the $100k franchise fee from my expense report-to-date.

The Grand Potentate's daughter likes lobster, champagne, and... well, me.

You owe me eight bucks.
