        After a split up, my daughter was consoling me and saying I could move on... lots of women will love you Dad... blah blah blah...

        I said "I havent got any game bubby"

        She said "No game IS game Dad".

        That has stuck with me since.

        So you are cool in my book rushindo.

    From zero to 8 figures in 1 month.
    Forget celebs, they are small potatoes.
    Try brokering a deal for the Defense Department for $645 million for the new
    "Gullible Warheads".
    Most get 3% on defense contracts, I talked them into 12%.

      I can believe that because when I was in my early twenties I went to work for a short time for a friend of mine who laid flooring...

      We got a job at NASA.

      They paid him over a million dollars for a job that took us 6 hours laying some special flooring that did not generate static electricity for the war head bunkers.... bombs...

      We talked all day about how government contracts are rediculous and they pay 100 dollars for something crazy like a "hammer" and buy them in units of a hundred thousand at a time.

      Why in the heck are you selling SEO man?

      Not that Im a stranger to great falls.

    It's just a joke, I thought the name Gullible War heads gave it away. Apparently, you can just make stuff up and post it around here.

      Oh. Well judging from that flooring experience I believed you. I guess you didnt sound inherently scammy enough.

    I actually used to be VP of a defense contractor....the smallest deal that we ever bid on was $36,000,000. War on drugs is a profitable thing.

    I worked for a couple government contractors. It always amazed me how much money they wasted for stupid stuff.

    Like having us spend months to capitalize a word in 14000 pages of xml files, only for us to get it done, have them change their minds and want us to put it back the way we originally had it.

    By then we had already made other changes as well so reverting to a backup (which they never kept anyway) was impossible.

    It was mind-numbingly ridiculous

      Spend $200 and create a program to do it for you... you really had to manually do that? What a waste!

      What did they pay you guys for that? If it is anything close to a million dollars like that NASA job above, I'm applying

        Well the company had the contract for years so not sure how much they were making (millions since the built the equipment as well). I was a contractor making 35 an hour. Regular employees got much less of course. So it was pretty good money for being mind numbingly bored. That is the only way I could keep doing it.

    Would it be obvious if I pretended I know WTF is going on here?

    I'll keep an eye on the comment to view ratio to see if it is worth following

    Yea, you would think they would create a program to take care of that. But no, they had us do it manually.

    I would feel like driving a knitting needle through my eye at the end of a 60 hour week!
