Thanks npap, but keep a couple billion for yourself. That should be enough for a bowl of soup and glass of wine!

Hello Ken,
Thanks for your offer of the two billion but the amount is not enough for a bowl of soup and a glass of wine.
After all, I am sufficiently rich to be able to afford a much better meal.

I just inherited a very rich uncle. Here is the first instalment I received from the bank.

I can loan you any amount you may need for the year's expenses.

I am also donating 200 billion dollars to the Linux Mint project.

Cheers,
npap

Congrats on your good fortune!

Looks like their money is based on the rock standard instead of the gold standard.

Correct, Ken.
But the rocks are sparkling and brilliant!
My late uncle, God bless his soal, left me a diamond mine! So have I been informed by a
Zimbabwe official.
But in order to make it offficial, I have to pay taxes in the amount of one Million American dollars in advance.
And since I have no American currency of that magnitude, I am looking for a good partner who may be willing to invest in this giant, profitable enterprise.

How about it, Ken? Are you interested?
You will owm 50% of the business and will get the management, since you are more business-oriented than me.

We will also offer a few shares, at a good price, to all our friends in this forum who may be willing to share my good fortune.
Please reply as soon as possible since the deadlne is 24:00 hrs, Oct. 30, 2011, Zimbabwe time.

Thanks in advance,
Your lucky partner,
npap

Yes, I'm interested! I've just won $1,500,000 in the Microsoft email lottery, so I can send you the tax money as soon as my bank account is credited with my winnings.

By the way, Ken, here's what we're getting into. It's the hole truth. :)

I'm telling you! This is really big business.
We will also need to hire some good slave drivers. :lol: Can you recommend any reliable men?
How about Deadguy and Richyrich?
We will also need a sky diver. There's a guy here somewhere but I forgot his name.

Have a nice weekend,
npap

OMFG, where did you undig that ??? I fondly remember those times. My grandfather was a farmer and when he went to the market to buy pigs, chicken, etc. they wouldn't bother to count the money in the plastic bag he handed them ... they put the plastic bag on the scales and measured its weight!!

".... 6 kg of paper money for 3 pigs and 6 hens ... Yup! Sounds about right ... "

A! I'm ahead of you in the exploration field, Scorp. :)
I've been treasure hunting in your area. The Bank note of 10 trillions was found in some old abandoned farm house. :lol:
But I can't disclose the exact location since there are many many trillions hidden there.
Tell me, what was your grandfather's name?
You may be a winner too. :)

Act fast and claim your share! You can buy a whole lot of pigs in my country for much less nowadays. :lol:

Cheers,
npap

I think we have enough slave drivers now. Next, we have to get the slaves. Any Windows users around here? :D

None that want to admit it ! But, I bet that we could get a lot of refugees.
