I started getting these when I signed up for a recipe e-mail. I've since unsubscribed the recipe service, so I hope these stupid emails will stop.
Sorry, thought you were a Seinfeld fan. Must just be the others. Apologies!
Ummmm...you mean like 88% of Congresscritters.
I agree about the need for a conservative investment group/fund.
And, one for Christians.
Both would do well to search out corporations with serious Christians in their top leadership/ownership--who also have great business savy, wisdom and humility that produced quality products/services with great integrity. Such corporations would at least get a leg up from The Almighty who cherishes honorable business dealings.
Kramer: What are those?
Jerry: Checks from my Nana.
Kramer: Cash em Jerry, cash em.
Pumice Acutely has a ring to it. Perhaps that would make a good name for a band?
LOL. Another good one!

Hi headsonpikes! Good to see you.
Been looking at this gold dip with some dry powder just waiting to pull the trigger and get more.
Hope you're doing great.
ELAINE: What's with the claw?
JERRY: Super terrific carpal tunnel syndrome.
Love this one too:
Street tough: Looking for something, lady?
Nana: Isn't the Chemical Bank on this block?
Street tough: The bank? It burned. It's gone!
Nana: Oh dear.
Street tough: Now what you wanna do is go down to forty-ninth street, that's the main customer service branch. Ask for Mr. Fleming. He'll help you.
"Right hand man" and "pumice acutely" don't go together. Trust me.
I loved that show.
With cable, I get to see three re-runs a night.
The thing I really like is that my father and son enjoy it as much as I do. It's great to sit there and laugh together.
We especially like and laugh ourselves silly when the episode " Master of My Domain" comes on. It's a hoot to see three generations laughing about the same thing.
My spouse thinks we're perverted.
I'm no fan of stock scammers, but:
1) Anyone who would buy any stock based on an e-mail from a stranger with no verifiable e-mail address and a subject line reading "pumice acutely", "single ruinous", or "steering deportation" is too stupid to be allowed to handle money in the first place, and might as well buy into these stock scams, because if they don't, they'll just blow their money on a Nigerian e-mail scam instead, and the result will be same for the "investor"; and
2) Some of these companies are perfectly legitimate (though not exactly stellar successes). These e-mail and message board scammers don't necessarily have any connection to the company which issued the stock. They're often just buying random dirt-cheap stock, spreading all this phony publicity around, which causes a bunch of suckers to buy some and drive the price up, and then they quickly sell while the suckers are still buying. This can all happen with no involvement from the issuing company, which may not even find out it happened until after the fact, and can't really do anything to stop it anyway. Attempts to do this sort of thing with major exchange-traded stocks are quickly foiled by the exchanges, but pink sheet and foreign OTC stocks just don't have anyone monitoring the trading in them on a real-time basis.
"Like 88 percent of Congresscritters?"Well....i hope the percentage isn't quite that high:)
I can't figure out how they got my email address, because suddenly I started getting tons of these. Of course I just delete them, but they ARE annoying.
Couldn't prove it by me..... : )
> I'd never touch an spammed stock - I'm too busy helping Dr Mbombo Obutu of Nigeria with a GUARANTEED SAFE TRANSACTION that will make me $$$!!!
DownUnder some of our bored teenagers have turned Nigerian scams into a blood-sport. They answer the ad, and drag the scam artist along for as long as they possibly can. The objective is to collect photos and other identifying material as "trophies". Those, naturally, get placed onto a webpage for bragging rights...
