    Default 160 million? After Taxes?

    Hoooeee, that's a lot of money. I don't know if I can count that high.

    First, to build up my strength I'd buy a set of really nice chrome plated weights and hire someone to lift them for me.

    Then, I'd pursue an education by buying my way into whatever college I could, then I'd hire a proxy student to go and take the classes for me, as I still can't sit still long enough for that.

    Then I'd arrange for a truckload of fine Belgian Trappist ales to be delivered to my door. I would NOT hire anyone to drink this for me. That's my job.

    Then I'd buy a van, fit it out for my style of travel, and drive all over North America until my money ran out.

    On the other hand, if that's 160 million BEFORE taxes, I guess I'd have to go get a job.

    Frank Ford has the best idea's i must say.


    As for me. It would mean I could move my shop out of the basement onto a nice big custom built one on my lot.

    Get the rest of the machines I need to build the best damn cuesticks I can.

    Interupt my "work" to travel some.
