|Apr-04-16|| ||technical draw: Dr. Van Pelt charges 5 cents for a visit. My insurance company won't cover that.|
|Apr-04-16|| ||WannaBe: <TD> Hey, according to the latest Leaked Panama Papers, you're worth $20.00, surely you can afford a lousy nickel!|
|Apr-04-16|| ||technical draw: <WannaBe> I was worth $20.00 when I signed up for chess games 13 years ago. Thanks to lousy investment advice I received here I am now $1,238,788.00 in the hole. By the way, how did you know I was hiding in Panama?|
|Apr-04-16|| ||WannaBe: There's nothing wrong with my advice to you to buy Enron. I still own 5 Trillion shares of the company.|
|Apr-04-16|| ||Jim Bartle: What did you pay for those shares?|
|Apr-04-16|| ||WannaBe: 0.000001 per share.|
|Apr-05-16|| ||technical draw: Well, my mistake of not taking out my $500 from the ATM machine in time and watching it being swallowed back in is turning into a Frankenstein. I have not been able to solve the problem with my local bank so I decided to escalate (i am not without influence in the banking industry ).|
People are going to think that there's $500 million involved because I have decided to call the bank president and the commissioner of the banking commission of the House of Representatives, a friend who goes back 50 years.
I never realized how influential I am and how many people in high places I know.
I gave the local officer plenty of time to solve a simple problem. It is now time to bring in the heavy guns. It doesn't matter if it is just $500, it might one day be $500 million of other people's money that is being mis-handled.
So I have taken off my shuffling shoes and decided to go to war. I could almost savor it! First stop the banks executive vice-president.
|Apr-05-16|| ||technical draw: Hurray! Got my money! It pays to have connections. However it shouldn't have gotten to that since it was a relatively easy problem to fix. I guess it's true: It's not what you know but who you know.|
|Apr-05-16|| ||Deus Ex Alekhina: They heard you were a part of the CeeGee.com gang and they caved in.|
|Apr-05-16|| ||TheFocus: You should have given that job to the Troop.
We would have gotten you a little interest to go with it.
|Apr-05-16|| ||technical draw: With my newly acquired $500 I will now redraw the mother of all gerrymandered congressional districts, Chicago's 4th:|
|Apr-06-16|| ||Deus Ex Alekhina: In exchange for my helpful advice (see my two previous posts in this forum), I will humbly accept a 10% gratuity of the $500. You're welcome.|
|Apr-06-16|| ||technical draw: Sorry <Deus>. Strangely your 10% is still stuck in the machine.|
|Apr-22-16|| ||technical draw: The greatest stand-up comic ever:
|Apr-27-16|| ||technical draw: <Jun-20-15
technical draw: Carly Fiorina will be the next president of the US. You read it here first.>
I meant to say vice-president.
|Apr-28-16|| ||Mr. President: I don't need a bleeding VP!|
|Apr-28-16|| ||technical draw: Sorry, Mr. President, but I have to underwrite you so everyone will know about my psychic abilities.|
|Apr-28-16|| ||diceman: <Mr. President:
I don't need a bleeding VP!>
That explains Joe Biden.
|Apr-29-16|| ||technical draw: <If a winning Presidential candidate dies or becomes incapacitated between the counting of electoral votes in Congress and the inauguration, the Vice President elect will become President, according to Section 3 of the 20th Amendment.>|
A weird second chance for my prediction. (of course Cruz will have to beat Trump then Clinton but that's not farfetched )
|May-13-16|| ||technical draw: If I found a magic lamp and the genie would grant me just one wish I would wish for world peace. Sure, and the moon is made out of green cheese.|
|May-27-16|| ||technical draw: Last night I got sleepy early. My curtains were drawn. Maybe next month I'll buy real ones.|
|May-27-16|| ||WannaBe: Feelin' better? You were gone for 2 weeks... Maybe you a trip (vacation)?|
|May-27-16|| ||technical draw: Thanks <WannaBe>. No, nothing wrong, just a little laziness.|
|Jun-01-16|| ||technical draw: Language is sound. Sound is frequency. Men and women speak in different frequencies. So how the heck do they understand each other? Ooops, sorry, they don't.|
|Jun-24-16|| ||technical draw: Brexit wins. TD sets odds for next countries to leave: Spain 6 to 5, Italy 7 to 5, Germany 2 to 1. Place your bets!|
