All right kids, what's next.Sintesi

Sintesi has come up with a fool proof plan to reduce obesity in society and He has pointed out the path to peace amongst the Israelis and the Palestinians. The world is getting better already.

You line 'em up and I'll knock 'em out of the park for you.

And you're welcome.

Actually it's a two fold plan that would require these "gang members" to play night basketball to keep them off the streets. I also propose an exhorbitant tax on all firearms sold by the po-lice. I think this "one-two" punch should snuff your little problem out in a fortnight. Run that by your local alderman and see what he/she thinks!

Man, this stuff just comes to me. I must be channeling or something.
Something. :-) nmKristin

I remember the old joke: How do you get 5 black men to stop stealing your car? Throw them a Basketball. The Democrats had to look no futher than "Truely Tasteless Jokes Volue IV" to find their crime bill. And they say Republicans are racist ;) Actually athletic programs were not that bad an idea. It is nice to get the young kids involved in them before the Gangs can try to get control of them.

How about this Sintesi, Non-migratory Canadian Geese have become a problem on Golf Courses or anywhere where else there is a field of grass for them to crap on. Why don't we the CPD give the gang member's guns but only if they agree settle thier disputes by shooting the Candian Geese. Say first gang to 100 wins. We can then use the geese to feed the hungry by making them goose Frito pies with the unsold stockpiles of snack chips left over after Sintesi's Junk Food Tax Plan takes effect. We will solve three of this countries biggest problems at once, Gang Violence, Hunger & my having to clean goose crap out of my golf shoes ;)

Geese for some unknown reason, hate, and I mean hate the sound of Police sirens set to "Phasers." No, not Star Trek on stun phasers. But that shreiking noise you sometimes hear from cop cars.

If your local police have this option and you happen to know one test it out. It's a sight to behold - they really get irked.

What is the Sintesi plan for getting an 80 inch plasma TV on mohair_chair's wall in time for the Super Bowl, free of charge?
Aye, there's the rub.Sintesi

Sintesi cannot aid a person in search of an 80" plasma TV since Sintesi, bright and gifted as he is, does not know how to invent one. :(

I bid you adieu.

Sony has them in Japan. I'm not sure if they are selling them yet, but they do exist.

Who can we tax to make this happen?

Those 80" plasma TVs are harder to find than an Iraqi missile silo.

This is beyond my mighty taxation powers. Sintesi suggests you commit fraud or theft. Possibly befriend a hapless millionaire or millionairess (are you good looking?) that is easily duped or seduced. You'll have to move quick. One more idea: perhaps the currency exchange rates will play in your favor, you may be able to purchase the massive television at a nominal sum. Watch the superbowl, then place the TV on Ebay and sell it for a massive TV price well above what you actually paid. Pocket the cash, save 10% mailable to Me, Sintesi, at a to-be-disclosed PO box should you actually follow this reeediculous advice and make good on it.

There, NOW how do you like me?

Sintesi, the solution is simple. You just give him the parlay for the remaining 6 playoff games. He can pawn his current TV, stereo, DVD player & VCR & Bicycle for $1,000. He places a bet on each of the 6 remaining games with your tips. He will double his money each game. At the end of the last game next weekend, he will have $64,000 which should be enough to have the TV delivered personally from Japan by a pair of Geisha Girls riding Record Equipped Colnago C40s.

Or he can do it the easy way, find a store that sells them that does not charge a restocking fee on large screen TVs. He charges the TV and then returns it the day after the game. I used to sell electronics for a short time. The store would charge a 15% restocking fee on all big screen TVs, especially around big events. We would always make sure they knew of the restocking fee before completing the sale and lost many sales after they learned they could not return it.

People would try to return big TVs after having a Super Bowl Party. We would point to the Restocking Fee Sign and clause on the receipt and watch them get really pissed. If they claimed it was defective we would offer them the same model or a store credit. Most left either keeping the TV or felt they were suckered into renting a TV for a weekend for $300. Let the buyer beware.

ideas on their own don't amount to anything. lord knows i've thought of a number of million dollar ideas in my time that went nowhere. it's all in the marketing and follow through.
Dag...that must be why I'm so poor and my ideas don't sell. nmKristin
