I'm actually talking about magical mystery metric marshmallows from Australia. I believe they are much smaller there. I still think you could haul them with one truck though. When loaded they would just have to be piled no higher than telephone wires, but they could bulge out from the sides of the truck. This could provide shade to passing cars, a welcome benefit in the outback. If you hit a kangaroo with a hat on, you might create one sweet, inedible mess though.

OK, the wife gave me chores today. I hope everyone has a good day, even you folks who don't think it's different this time .

the DH, whatever that means

Re: O.K., so seeking investment advice

The H stands for husband. The D's meaning varies.

I think the chinese have been secretly stockpiling lead. Their plan in the 50's was to sneak chinese manufactured lead-based paint into US hardware stores. Lately they've quietly reproduced to four billion are will be taking over the "Work at home making lead fishing weights!" industry, cutting their working rates from 50c an hour to 10c an hour.

Now they've set up this enticing shell company thats going to lure (heh) american investors into this lead battery situation and then snap...take all our money.

We should be afraid. Very afraid.

They already have most of our money. Now they want all our promisory notes, at least the ones the Japanese don't own. Thank God, we have the best printing presses in the world that printed money can buy--or would we be in trouble.

Re: O.K., so seeking investment advice

Sounds like something that would be made in germany.

Which means you'd have to drop the exhaust system and the drive shaft to add ink to it. And doing that would require 3 tools you dont have and involve 5 fastening systems you've never seen before. All of which require adjustments quarterly. All of which could be fastened with something standard that can be installed once with a flathead screwdriver and never touched again, but those wouldnt be any fun to use.

In a printing press?

I'm sure BMW is teaming up with canon as we speak.

Looks like the Polymedica wild ride continues:

"PolyMedica Corporation (NASDAQ/NM: PLMD) announced today that it is increasing the purchase price of its previously announced tender offer to repurchase up to $150 million of its common stock. The new purchase price will not be less than $34.75 per share nor more than $37.50 per share. Previously, the price range of the tender offer was from $30.75 to $34.50 per share. The Company is extending the expiration date of the tender offer from 12:00 midnight, Eastern time, on June 23, 2005 to 12:00 midnight, Eastern time, on July 8, 2005."
