Woo, that looks fun, but is a certain fruity item essential to control it?

wow..........that is crap.

$65 gets you a mini-helicopter with its own dedicated controller, That not only has stabilisers but also looks like a helicopter.

In Greg's case I would suggest that he forms another relationship and then moves out taking half the money.

One presumes you will move to a place that the next Ex can't extradite you from or the laws do not apply.

So how do you think you are going to take all your money?

So how do you think you are going to take all your money?*yawn* You should change your username to Sleep.

I'm obviously a lot more savvy than I was... you never heard of a pre-nup agreement, or do live your life completely blinkered? Oh and that's a rhetorical question... I'm tired already of replying to your ad infinitum snide remarks.

Honestly Sweep, do you know when to stop? You make a funny comment which Greg took in good humour and then you continued on with pedantic comments which are completely unnecessary.

Do you have to take life so seriously and dissect each comment minutely? :rolleyes:


I know ... brick wall material.

I do take comments seriously and don't treat life as a game.
I further note that Greg edited the last post I replied to after I posted.

You may not have read that though.

Still, your comments have been received by many as sour & trolling, myself included. I've noticed the overall tone of your posts have changed in the last few weeks, sadly it's not been for the better.

Consider this your first and final warning. Be nice, it's not difficult.

Thanks


Chill.

Yea it seems like you just post to be pedantic and annoying. Almost like it has become almost a chore for you to post at the moment.

pre nups not very legall here.

good trust created before relationships are pretty watertight though, as long as you manage them properly.

Have to be careful about contributions during the relationship though.

the toy in question could have some very interesting applications, any idea how noisy it is??:p

Pre-nup wasn't the exact term I wanted to use - but the essentially the agreement that parties sign to have the same affect.

Trusts aren't watertight either when it comes to Relationship Property, although as you mentioned, trusts made before the relationship are more effective.

As for the toy - I watched some of the videos, and while you can hear the background noise, the sound from the toy's motor is hardly noticeable. Which is a shame really - the Tim Allen affect, eg ROOOOOAAAAWWWR ain't a bad thing! ;-)

Noise is what I DONT want for, the applications we have in mind.

Trusts,

made before the Relationship should have relationship property kept out of them. such property should be held in another entity controlled by the trust.

= keep all of what you had and a large chunk (= more than 50%) of what was jointly accumulated, if you manage the entity properly.

You are definitely showing your age as when you were younger you wouldn't have worried about the cost.:)
