But, if I do actually choose to perform some work, then even more random people will give me even more money.
It's like my own private ponzi scheme.

The hightlighted passage contains a danger that the Dungeon advisors wish to call to your attention. If you get even more money by performing SOME work, you may sucumb to the temptation to work ALL the time for ALL the money. This would result in your 10-Ring rep suffering because you are NOT doing ANY partying. Even infinite money is not worth such a knock to your image among the 10-Ringers.

Define even more random people.

Just how random must they be?

If they aren't random enough, can they become more random, or even more random?

Sort of makes the 10-Ring look docile by comparison.
OMG, I found an article on this one.

Okay, I'll answer. I was taking the fifth, but I changed my mind.

They must be Science Fiction fans.

While observing the Particle Zoo, a couple of baryons and quarks stepped out, So I snapped a few photons of the exotic particles of muons and neutrinos for the penthouse, so to put a spin on things...as I looked over the fermions, then saw vector and scalar boson sitting in the corner with other antiparticles. It was time to call upon Higgs to shed some light on this dark matter!

It turns out they were just having an anti-matter social...

They might want to have something like this for the recovery effort!

Fortunately, it turns out it was a false alarm. He just said he swallowed them, and later when he found them, he admitted it.
Big relief 'eh?

nobody ever ASKED if we had a Batmobile.
I could have told you, but did you ask ?

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !

Mongo said he wanted one, so we acquired one for him. Geo Barris probably made about 20 of them, they're not really rare. Built up from a Lincoln Conny frame. The 1st was built from the old Lincoln "Futura" show car. All the rest are "replicas", there's one about 2 miles from me, down the street at the Volo Auto Museum.

Jingle bells, Batman smells
Robin laid an egg.
The Batmobile lost its wheel
And the Joker got away.

I offer the Dungeon philosophy for alcoholic beverage consumption: I can drink any given amount ... as long as it's given!

And an Irishman is not drunk, so long as he can reach out & grasp a blade of grass to keep from falling off the face of the Earth.

Well, when my ten year old son was much younger, we dubbed my 98 Lincoln Mark VIII the Turtle Mobile. Does that count?

At least, so far, Mongo has never asked to borrow it. He seems to prefer cars named after mammals (Bat-Mobiles, Mustangs, Pintos, Bisons, Broncos, Cougars, Impalas, Rabbits).

That sounds cool. My best local museum is the gun display room at the Winchester Mystery House.

I think that the Volo Museum has a web sight.
If not, I'll have to harass the brothers that own it....went to high school with one of them !

You know that sounds like Volvo Museum. With all these inebriated 10 ringers, there is sure to be some confusion.

Ooh, they do have a batmobile. I remember going to San Carlos to see that as a kid (as well as the 007 Aston Martin).
