Yea, I took advantage of the breeze and clouds today and finshed a grass cutting job. Was going to shoot but!...Then the rains came, so I did some work on my ironing board, CHRONY setup! Built a flip up target frame to mount on the back end.

Now its time for an "N"Sweat!

I agree. Better even than a good day embezzling grant money!

Today heavy rains was a wash out...Great for Laundering the embezzling - I ment to say "Re-direction of avaliable capital". There was so much rain we could "FLOAT-A-Loan"!

That suggested terminology has merit; the Dungeon will convene a Plenipotentiary Tribunal to consider your proposal. As usual, logistics costs for the supporting partying are on our tab.

We may make ONE change, though. The term "available" seems a bit too passive for the Dungeon Linguistics Unit taste. When necessary, we can hustle a bit to tap into the more impressive "difficult to access" capital; we like to think our mission is ennobled when we take on truly impressive opposition circumstances. We think the contrarian 10-Ring outlook (pardon my redundancy) will comprehend our motivation.

No doubt !
I actually got a head start on it with last night's dinner, today was much of the same.
Strictly an experiment to check & compare my blood sugar levels, of course.....
in the name of science......

Rabbi, Rabbi, Rabbi.........

Think about this aspect. If we raise Partying to a scientific level, we can apply for a RESEARCH GRANT.
Which will in turn pay for MORE partying !

Your approach has merit; it will be surveyed for potential applicability to 10-Ring financial applications.

There is ONE item to which we must devote attention: possible problems involving INTERACTION between the raucous inebriated debauched revelry aspect of 10-Ring ambiance and the serious financial considerations the outside world expects from us while we rip them off ... whoops! ... I mean, while we present attractive investment opportunities for their involvement. For us to OPENLY admit we are directing their grant money to partying purposes might upset the delicate balance between our RIDR and financial wings.

In the immortal words of the Wicked Witch of the West: These things must be done DELICATELY ... or you hurt the spell!

I feel I must direct the powers that be to "countrygun's laws of maximizing undeserved profits" specifically law "#4"

"Do not be greedy about unearned profits. An idea that promises great profits may attract great (and unwanted) attention. If neccessary it is better to waste 50% 0f someone elses money, in order to keep 50% without suspicion that to try and keep it all and sink the getaway boat under the weight."


To that end, and recognizing the brilliance of the intitial concept here, I would suggest that we REVERSE the alleged purpose of the study and focus the "purpose" of the study on the effects of NOT partying. Follow along closely.

If we were to send out a relatively small research team to study, say, an Amish community for a period of time, they would be able to document certain attributes and results at the end of a period of time. This also would be an obviously in expensive project, then,

in the interests of objectivity there would have to be a "control" to measure against. In this case since the "study" is on the effects of not partying, a control would therefore have to include---"partying". I am sure we could find enough volunteers to participate to get an effective collection of data, and, said partying would NOT be the focus of the funded study and would be buried in the last pages of the "front" study.

True, maybe we can find another group to exploit...errr.. I mean "study".


I have been toying with the idea of putting in a grant request to Congress to study Congress.

I am sure there are tons of profitable possibilities there but the danger of associating with riff-raff the likes of which one finds in Congress must be considered.

Nope, last time that was tried the funds were all embezzled during the planning stage. Don't kid a kidder.

I can personally round up the necessary test subjects.....

Most will come willingly, knowing that there is "research" involved.

Those charges were never proven and my record is still spotless.

While you all are trying to stick a stick in the spokes of partying while involved in the "research", pass me a "N"Sweat please!

I'll have you know that YOU ARE HELPING THE RESEARCH !!

There are flow meters installed on EVERY "N"Sweat Lager Tapper, Penthouse, Dungeon, Lagoon & even in TARDIS, in the banquet hall.
We get to write off & subsidize this entire operation !

Our Zurich-trained Gnomes are efficient & competent !


uncle

edit to add: And we STILL get our 39% for the Slushie fund !
