Excellent notion. This gives a reasonable "margin of error" to prevent embarrassment caused by assuming a total correlation of dates without allowing for an inverse ratio of multiplicable variables.

Of anyone we should be aware of this it should be us. It would be very damaging to our reputation if we were to prematurely end the celebr...err preparations

Rabbi, I believe that you're confusing "vacation" with "rersearch".
Doing research at another venue's party is covered in paragraph 6, sub section c, and is also deductible & can in fact be requested as being re-imbursable, as far as travel & lodging expenses are concerned.
This can be expidited by submitting a "Graft & Corruptiion" form directly to the Penthouse fiscal staff, eliminating the need to run it thru Dungeon accounting, saving us bookeeping time & expense. When Pent.fiscal enters it into their acct's. payable, a DUPLICATE payment is generated that goes directly into Dungeon R&D, which then transfers into Engineer 151515's "N"SweatLager production expense acct.
ergo, Penthouse pays for OUR brewski DIRECTLY, with zero expense to us.

Unkle, that is an inspired concept: embezzling from the embezzlers! I like it!

An extra ration of grog to you tonight.

I would like to make a formal complaint, my refill took 3.335 seconds!

We thank you for your patience on this item.

Fill out the proper complaint form (in quintuplicate) and submit it for consideration. My personal hunch is you were too soused to correctly handle the stopwatch.

If you are working a table selling AR mags, exercise caution. I would hate to have you admitted to an ER with footprints all up your back!

Rabbi, I bought 3 pmag's @ $18.00/ea, but by the end of the show, they were being offered @ $40.00 or so.
I work for the promoter of the show & as such am in before the vendors, giving me a good shot at stuff BEFORE it becomes outrageous.
These 3 were purchased for a good customer from our retail store, and I'm not going to make a dime on them. We didn't try to gouge any of our customers, as we have a rather stable base. And when all of this panic buying subsides, they WILL remember who didn't try & screw them over.
One vendor was selling 62 gr SS109 for the price of $1.00/ per round !
We don't do that sort of thing & we have about 98% repeat customers. And we STILL make money. Lots of it !
Oh yeah....one area dealer was offering his last completed AR lower at $1000.00, cash only ! After this subsides, his business is going tank, I'm sure. Customer do remember...

Well played, Unkle! The world does indeed comprehend the clear distinction between gracious embezzlement and flagrant ripoff.

Did you form a judgment of what price was being actually PAID for pmags when the inflation started kicking in late on the show? There is the old saying: they talk about value, they do business at PRICE.

The guy pushing the thousand dollar last complete lower shall be excluded from the debauched 10-Ring Lagoon party list.

Several did, in fact trade hands at the $40.00 level, but I was able to get to my supplier before the speculators did. I did take all that he had in stock, which was the 3 pcs. But at this level I will have a happy, repeat customer, who I had sold a complete lower to last week.....at the un-inflated price of $260.00. We made money on the transaction & all are happy. He already had an upper, so the mags complete his package.

So very true. One of the principles of successful embezzlement if to not humiliate the donor. It is far better for the long term and repeated endeavor if the mark walks away saying "look what I got" rather than saying "Look at what I had to pay for this".

The sign of success is when they return with a smile eager to repeat the experience.

Those evil 30 round mags and those assault rifles, are just not needed...Till the gangs or illegal immigrants rise up or terrorist attack us again! Just remember there is a rifle behind every blade of grass!

If only the idiots would realize everytime some enraged mentally ill person or criminal mind, decides to do an unspeakable acts to break the laws of man and god, the media and the government feels it needs to disarm law abiding citizens or take away something from us gun nuts. Who are the gun nuts? They are Law enforcement, military, fire service, EMS, (active and retired) they gun manufactures, collectors, competition shooters, hunters and yes just plain old ordnary people who want to exercise their second amendment freedom for to provide self defense for themselves and family. We get the 5th degree, everytime at the expense of the medias' constant horror show when they demonize the gun, enticing the uneducated public into believing their gun control mission is the answer.

True in financial dealings ... and also true in more "intimate" affairs.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I'm schitzophrenic
And so am I

(not exactly in the holiday spirit, but THIS thread is unusual!)
