    Deal. In the usual spirit of 10-Ring gaming, I suppose that we just make up the rules as we go along.

    By the way, what types of accelerated methods are you lookin to cover? Double-declining balance, sum-of-the-years digits; or were you thinking more like tax methods like MACRS or section 179? So many choices. All special in their own way.:dunno:

    Wow, i'm really starting to perk up here. This place hasn't been this lively since Geesie passed through on one of her shopping trips.

    I think she just uses one of those Amex Black cards.

    "Make up the rules as we go along" is a trifle vehement; I prefer to call it learning to fly the plane on the way to the target.

    The Dungeon presentation will not be covering the mundane topics you mention. If you want the actual story of where the Solyndra money was channelled before the bankruptcy declaration, check out our demo session.

    Hey, Tater! The Dungeon types came up with one that will give them the edge in our competition:

    Our Accelerated Depreciation lecture will be presented by Tazz's Swedish Bikini Team.

    Match that! ... if you can.

    Well played. Well played. But clearly a violation of the established rules.

    I will do you one better.

    The Victoria's Secret Angels team...

    Plus a quart of baby oil...

    And a very large tarp...

    Having a tickle contest.

    Plus free N' Sweat Lager's for the audience.

    Game, set, match!

    Here comes your chance to redeem yourself, although that Sardines-Oxtail soup sounds yummy.

    :eat:

    Is sardines-oxtail soup best paired with saltines or oyster crackers?

    The heck with oyster crackers, grilled Louisiana oysters on the half shell.
    Garlic & hot sauce butter drizzled over oysters on half shell, sprinkled with romano and parmesan cheese, grill till cheeses and butter starts to brown on the edges.
    Sliding the grill oyster and jucies into your mouth, then with toasted french bread slivers about 1/2" thick to wipe up the remaining jucies from the shells.

    I got to go! Done made myself hungry!

    Your compliment is appreciated.

    Your claim of established rules is puzzling; would you approve if I violated un-established rules? But then, we have an opporational doctrine controlling Dungeon administrative conduct:

    We must have rules! ... If we don't have rules, then we can't have any fun breaking the rules.

    Your proposed counter to my proposal has potential. I suggest reducing the quart of baby oil to a pint; too much reflective glare off the participants might reduce the perception quotient enjoyed by the observers. Just a thought.

    Breaking the rules means a Chamber session.








    I love breaking the rules.

    Gee, Speaking of Chamber sessions, I hope she is OK! She hasn't been poking around the ring...:shocked:

    Maybe she's waiting for me to pick out a Christmas outfit...

    She can choose...:dunno:

    Forgive me for deviating from the current salacious sleazeball direction of this thread, but I wish to present a philosophical digression.

    Suppose a majority of the inebriated 10-Ring membership (pardon my redundancy) were actually able to simultaneously achieve sobriety for a brief. yet measurable, interval.

    Would anyone care?

    Since to deviate, one must, by definition, be a deviant, I doubt if anyone will care.

    Now this, someone might care about.

    You raise an interesting variation of the original quandary. Would anyone care about whether anyone cares about the original question?

    Inquiring minds want to know; it might affect the embezzlement action.

    :headscratch: Is this like the question where, "If a tree falls and nobody is there to hear it, did it make a sound? :scared:
    Who has to search for someone that cares? Is that like the guy who roamed the four corners of the earth looking for one honest man? I wonder how many times he was mugged, and or, robbed. :exercise: Is this rhetorical, just for the sake of it?

    Augh, an interesting derivation of the old National Enquirer slogan. I like it.

    ... or perhaps the more 10-Ring-oriented version: If I commit an embezzlement transgression in the woods, and Geesie is not there to notice it, would I still be punished?

    The question remains, if Geesie punished you in the woods would anyone notice? :dunno:
