Don't Mess with Augusta National!


Recommended Posts

It takes either big balls, or tiny brains, to somehow think that ANGC wouldn't notice this...they practically own IBM, and have hands down the best tournament website/app in the sports world.

Unfortunately, I think the chances of me ever winning the Masters lottery remains unchanged.

With stock prices, like other statistics, you can prove any point you want if you pick the right time period. So while what you say is accurate over the last 20 years it’s also accurate to say if you had bought IBM in 2002 and sold it in 2012 you would have had a 350% gain.

Hey. But you can have your kid living in an active meth lab , get caught red handed and have the kid test highest in the counties history for the substance , and have the kid take 10 days to completely detox. And get a year probation and custody back. True Efin story . Go figure.

How so? I won the lottery this year - (4) Tuesday practice round tickets @ $75/ticket. That's pretty generous when people resell them on the secondary market for $1,000+/ticket.

I mean, it's generous in the sense that it's there and the prices are reasonable. The number of tickets available are perfectly reasonable, as well, given you can go and actually see the event you are paying for.

And combine that with what amounts to identity theft in the current age and the staggering amounts of money involved!

 

Then again, they go to some tough prison and the answer to “what’re you in here for” won’t sound very intimidating, lol, better have a million cartons of cigarettes.

so let me get this straight. They made $530k and had to pay ~$150K. seems like they are way ahead. Even if they can never apply for tickets again...

sure the "maximum" penalty is 20 years in jail I seriously doubt they will see the inside of a prison.

Scammers are everywhere.

 

Had a guy ring the home phone during dinner the other night. I like to have fun with these guys.

 

He said, "there is a problem with your Windows Software."

 

I answered, "Oh my goodness no - my windows have software, what will they think of next? Do you need my social security # to fix the problem?"

 

He paused in confusion, "not yet, but, well - hold the line please."

In theory. Yes. In practice ? Not really. Plenty been picked 3-5 times. Plenty 0-12. Plenty gave up.

I suspect that is the reason they keep propping it up and not letting it go private. Only business on earth that can lose as much as it takes in and stay open. All to be able to prosecute for mail fraud.

I always tell these knuckleheads I have been "diagnosed" and only have a few weeks to live.....so, at this point, not much matters except all the pizza, beer and hookers I can stand. Usually a few seconds go by and I get dial tone.
