    I'm Rich! "New Energy Source"!

    Tonight I found a very professional looking, 200+ page report lying on my back doorstep. It was a in a folder titled, "New Energy Source", and included the name, phone number, and email address of the person responsible. I have no idea who this person is, why they would know who I am, why they would go to my back door, or why they thought I would be interested, but they did a beautiful job. A quick glance reveals that this a secret new technology that allows simple magnets to produce free energy. Woohoo!!! All I have to do is to call this person, give them my stamp of approval, and share the wealth.

    Very strange.

    It's mine. For a modest initial investment, I'll let you share in the patent right. I'll PM you my Paypal information.

    Great! :cry: I found out that it was left by a 70 year old lady who wants to know if the life's work of her now dead friend can help save the world.

    The last time something like this happened, it was an older gent who blew his entire retirement savings on a half-baked paddle wheel and creek scheme. He had purchased a crane to lift his floating paddle wheel in and out of the creek. That alone cost something like $30,000. He wanted me to tell him how much money he was going to make with a 1890s vintage [for all practical purposes], undershot paddle wheel. I would have been surprised if he got more than a 100-200 watts out of it.

    Wouldn't this be an intrusion of property? Legal sanctions can be made. Did the old lady really put it at the back?

    Free energy would violate the law of conservation of energy. This thread is a joke about crackpots.

    Haha depends how one interprets the claim. I wasn't referring to the claim but the offer being in his backyard.

    Do you really get the impression that Ivan is so bothered by some one at his back door that he wants to take legal action against an old lady who lost a friend?

    No, no. Just the measures the old lady took. Besides, it wasn't finding a friend more than being finding someone to continue the legacy. Does seem a little suspicious. And no, I'm not encouraging legal action.

    Like me and several other PFers, Ivan lives in the Pacific Northwest. This kind of thing happens all the time here. The forests are chock-full of elderly people wandering around, leaving strange things on doorsteps.

    Just the other day I found a dead mole, minus its hindquarters, at my back door. Silly old people!

    Hey! Whose technology is it, again? :mad: It is me who had spent many sleepless hours and endured many failures to invent this free energy source. At first I thought I'd use LHC, but LHC did not give me permission. So I had to use small magnets. :wink: Aha sweet success. Ivan dont listen to any impostors. I'm the only genuine inventor of this marvel. Of course you have to send me some greenies.

    How is the Nigerian princess doing? I sent her some money to help her regain her throne, but I never heard back.

    Re: I'm Rich!!!

    She sent me my $15,000,000 of the $20,000,000 that her father stole. I spent it on a Rolex that turned out to be fake. When I realized that I had been taken, I sold the watch to her for the other $5,000,000. That $5,000,000 went for a scheme that was supposed to enlarge my manhood, but they must have sent me the wrong stuff because all I got out of it was a sugar high. Good luck getting your money back. The last time I saw her she had enlarged her womanhood to the point that I doubt she has any money left to give away to strangers.

    I have a secret energy source. It's free gas. Normally I can go pretty much all day without farting, but when I'm put in a situation where I'd have to hold it in, like in a school classroom, my body begins to produce an impossible amount of gas. So put me in a classroom or a job interview or something like that, hook a hose up to my butt, and power the country.
