    Ahh, the new retiree and the new retirement where you take a month off and then go back to work someplace else or if you're lucky the same place with half the hours and half the stress and still enough money to play...

    Congratulations Om!

    Time to go to Australia now, the place that is very close to the surface of the sun.

    I can't understand what's happening in this thread. Why is everyone celebrating when Om retired? :confused:

    No longer a full-time slave to society. Perhaps a part-time slave, it's an improvement.

    Good grief! Late to my own retirement party. Thank you lisab, and everyone.

    My first task at hand is to clean up my house, and my yard. Both are coming along nicely.

    After that, I will turn my living room into a mini-me shop, and build my invention. (I don't have a garage. :cry: )The prototype will involve a bicycle, so it shouldn't turn into too much of a mess.

    After it's completed, I will of course test it out, and make sure it works as predicted. If it does, I will start on the patent. Once the patent is filed, I will license it to my first customer. I expect to get between $25,000,000 to $50,000,000. After that, I may visit Australia on my new yacht. When I return home, I will start building my multinational, trillion dollar business. That should take about 10 years. At that point, I will sell my company, dole out the OmCheeto prizes, buy a really big yacht, retire for real, and meet everyone in Bora Bora. I plan on buying it, so everyone can stay for free.

    Sincerely,

    Cathy

    :biggrin:

    That's $3,185 for every man woman and child in America. Do you really think everyone would just give me that much money?

    Hmmm.... I suppose that since the crowd funding for solar roads has already accumulated over $1,900,000, maybe people are that stupid.

    Disco, disco roads..... I want to drive on ($56,000,000,000,000) disco roads. (sung to the tune of Macho-man)

    And that lady who made $500,000,000 by inventing a new jewelry box. This just proves that money is out there to be harvested.

    Good bloody grief.

    If anyone needs ice samples from the Pleistocene, just check out my freezer.

    I think I may have pushed the "repurposing" thing, a bit over the edge.
