Karma may be a bitch but I also remember this from Woody Allen:
There are two types of people in this world, good and bad. The good sleep better, but the bad seem to enjoy the waking hours much more.


This seems to hold in a rather large subset of the population.

I highly doubt that he/she/it will experience any repercussions from his possibly fraudulent operation. In fact he/she/it will possibly move up to the big leagues and go into politics. There any sense of morals will only be a handicap.

No. It seems to also be true in much of the business world not to mention the pharmaceuticals and much of the rest of the medical business and then there is the lawyers and ...

It seems in the current world a lack of morals is a near requirement to make real money.

hah! been through that mess already with someone else. but the instructions on how to get USTVNOW are already on my site. someone with a webscraper for roku channels told me that my posts index to google in about 8 minutes so if someone can't find instructions for USTVNOW by googling it, i'm going to have to say they deserve to get overcharged

good thing i'm not in it for the money. and thanks, i appreciate the thought. but there's already a donation link on the page that i'd prefer people use. i volunteer with a rescue for abandoned/feral cats. if people donated to me i'd just spend it on rescue kitty vet bills or feral spay/neuter costs anyway and if you use the link that's already there you get a tax deductible receipt. everyone likes a tax deductible receipt
on my to do list: make a roku channel of videos of kittens from the rescue. all kittens, all the time. there's got to be a market for that!


That's too funny. A few years ago, I sold a satellite system to a couple I know. They actually wanted 2 systems. One for their huge house and another for (you'll never guess)... the house they bought next door for their cats!!!. Animal planet 24/7! I kid you not, they bought the house next door just so they could keep most of their cats there. Previous to buying them a house, they lived in their 3 car garage with heat and air conditioning! We all have our priorities I guess :)

You think that will work better than 7-Minute Abs did? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QeHVYuRnIjY


What if someone comes out with 6 minutes Abs?
