This guy Pratt has more money than he knows what to do with. Before he bought the Super Snake for $5.5 mil he bought a new Shelby Cobra Mustang for $600k after topping his own bid of $500k since it was for charity.

OK Thrillkill, I think P.T. Barnum said that originally and I believe it to be the truth. I'm atm a little too drunk to click on, and read your link, but I'm taking your word for it

If I have anything to say later when I'm sober tomorrow, I'll add to this thread.

BTW, do you remember that immortal line by W.C. Fields when the woman told him "Sir, I believe you're drunk"? And he said something like "Yes ma'am I must be, but when I awake tomorrow I'll be sober but you will still be ugly".

That guy cracks me up!

I find the Cobra to be one of the ugliest cars ever made. Performance is there, but it's like having an ugly hag for a girlfriend who happens to give a great blow job. I'd rather have a Dodge Coronet.

You're correct. WC said "Never give a sucker an even break", however. He also said he never drinks water because "fish fuck in it".

Another good one:

I always keep a supply of stimulant handy in case I see a snake--which I also keep handy.

Well, I just gave a sucker an even break. The guy was willing to pay me $100 extra for something he already bought from me and I said "No".

Was I wrong?

Yes , you should take the money but give him an extra 1/4 gram as a gesture of kindness.

I was out on my supply sourcs.

OK, here is the deal: he sends me money orders issued by Western Union. He wants the thing to be shipped right away. I go to the Western Union store and learn they take 10% for cashing the MOs. I then call Western Union and learn there is no way to cash those free of charge.

So I tell the guy. He wants to send me $100, which is 10%.

Instead I cash it thru my bank account and tell him not to bother.

Once again, was I wrong?
