I'll have to scan some to show you guys.

And it'd have to be a class-action suit: there were several of us making them! I think Sean started it...

Are you more flattered or mad if it ends up being the case that they stole them?

Weren't there a few people earlier in the Summer who said they had gone to some sort of amway pyramid scheme meeting earlier this Summer thinking it was a legitimate business thing? I don't know much about that stuff but, I got invited to participate in something that it has been suggested might be like that.

Basically a guy called me because someone mentioned my name to him. He didn't tell me exactly what they did, but instead referred me to a website to see if I understood some terms, and he said if I didn't understand the terms then I wouldn't be a good fit. The video was very vague and was basically a collection of phrases- social networking media, time compounding, and I can't remember the other ones. The video made it seem like the business had something to do with using social media to sell already existing products from major companies. It stressed that it would require work to make money, and there was no guarantees that I would profit immediately.

In order to learn more about what they did I would have to attend a seminar, I thought that perhaps the reason for this was that they had a good idea, and didn't want to share it with random people who could just steal it. I ended up telling the guy I was too busy to do it this semester and he seemed eager to still get me involved, later on, and also asked me if I knew anyone else, but I didn't give him anymore contacts. My friend talked to the guy and he wouldn't say exactly how they made money, but said basically they sell leadership training. He kept stressing that my friend (let's call him Bob saying my friend is getting annoying) could make a decent chunk of money over the next month or so, but was kind of evasive on how it worked, and Bob pointed out to me that he didn't think the model was sustainable, and that perhaps he could make that money this month, but not the next.

Does this sound like a scheme? I'm not getting involved either way, but the guy who referred me is involved so I was just curious. This experience and "Bob" mentioning amway to me reminded me of a discussion about it earlier.

Also if you look up the end of the company's url it is claimed that it has connections to quixtar which was connected to amway, or something like that?

edit: I'm 22, I'm not sure if I heard the sound I may have very faintly? But, I know I have some hearing loss from when I was a little kid, though it isn't bad. It isn't BS though, I remember hearing that some kids were using something simmilar as ring tones in middle school/high school because teachers generally couldn't hear them. They actually installed a louder noise maker like this at a metro station in D.C. recently- http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...83105777.html- the comment made about it being racist and ageist has some validity. Basically they are trying to keep young black kids from hanging out around there, while white yuppies frolic around. I see and understand how one could support it, but I still don't like it. Also for those of you who don't know, that stop is pretty much at the Verizon center, and I don't think it's particularly dangerous like one of the interviewees states. If you are there at night on a weekend there are lots of people around. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Mosquito .

If it sounds like BS, call BS.

Same reason why Prepaid Legal is complete BS.

Why does Beef Jerky always sound like it's going to hit the spot until you start to chew it? Seriously it smells good, it looks good, it tastes like salted leather. Got sucked in again.....

It has more retarded comments then the general section does (and that section has the weekly "bash the flyers" thread). Come on now... they have a thread discussing how "evil" going to school is... What are we, back in grade school?

It's really a shame. The lounge used to be so much fun, but it's gone into the toilet the last couple of years.

There were some amazing threads (I have no idea if it's still around, but the Domino City Saga comes to mind), great arguments/discussions (pudding vs custard anyone?), and it was good for at least one really, really good laugh per day.

I remember 2 years ago I'd go in there all the time and waste my entire day just reading **** in there. There is still that one classic thread that will pop up out of every 100 created, but aside from trying to find it, there is no good that can come out of going in there. I mean there is a war going on in a thread about smoking right now, and some girl was ready to ****ing chop my head off yesterday because I dropped too many curse words and now apparently I need anger management or something. It's pretty funny getting in fights with people there though, just because 99.9% of the time they're actually really angry, and trying to pull **** out of their ass to comeback at you, and meanwhile I'm laughing my ass off.
