Perhaps you need:

Mantology

Fortune-telling, for that unfair advantage ]:)

Or, you could become a Mantologist:

A fortune-teller, with pockets deep enough to swallow all your winnings!

So, over the next 10 weeks WFTWE will bring you new and innovative ways to ensure you win heaps of money. :)


First we brought you WFTWE #52 Spatilomancy (http://pressf1.pcworld.co.nz/thread.jsp?forum=1&thread=35530&message=166663&q=spatilomancy#166663) - Fortune-telling by observing animal droppings. :(

Now we bring you Gyromancy - Fortune-telling by walking in a circle until dizzy; the fortune is determined by where the person falls. :|

Cheers

[b][pre]Well, it's very kind of you, but since you offered,
yes 10% of your winnings would be much appreciated thanks.
We take cheques, money orders, credit cards, and plain
brown-paper bags full of used bank notes, 50's are nice. :8}

I do hope you are not related to Mrs T, Mike; she thinks I'm a worry too.

That's the problem with these cryptic Forum names, you never know if you carrying on some weird conversation with your incredibly antisocial ex axe-murdering next door neighbour, or the wife's brother (or sister :O) or even the boss :_|

A guy could lose sleep worrying about things like that...............or perhaps not. :|

Send money, I am in desperate need of help.:D

Why not psychokinesis, so you can influence the balls as they are drawn?

Or ,as the stupid politicians are promising, "interactive televison" with digital transmission. I want a DESTRUCT button. The first to go would be the smarmy "presenters" on the Lotto draw. Their inane babble has been fixed ... the mute button does work.

It's amazing what half-arsed ideas the politicians spout about (remember Maurice and "500 channels television"?). There's not enough quality programming for half a channel. :D

... is now a good time to mention how good [ pre ] tags can go bad? :D The infamous missing [ / pre ] tag :p

Another small [ pre ] tip .. you need to put in your own line breaks of appropriate lengths otherwise the page goes veerrrrryyyy wide - in case you hadn't noticed :D

wonders whether she can claim a slice of this commission for
professional services [ pre ] tips rendered ...?

I'll write the contract now Jen. Ninty percent (90%) of Billys portion ok with you?

Cheers Murray ;P

hmm .... I think Ninty percent (90%) of Billy's share could be considered reasonable B-)

However, I think it should be written in that ..

"Addition to clause 26.1 page 1962 ..."
// - 26.1b - as agreed herewithin Jen will be entitled to Ninty percent (90%) of all entitlements acquired under subclause 26.1 (i)
// - but subclause 26.1 (iii) is not applicable to the additional clause 26.1b.
Yes, I think that should be OK with me (don't know about Billy though) :D

You really should extract the applicable phrase is clause (iii) but never the less its acceptable to me. Put your mark in the appropriate space allocated below. You'll need to initial the other 1961 pages as well.

*Cough*

I think you may have missed something Murray.:D

An essential element in any contract is consideration,
and that has been supplied by Billy T's Mantology (2003) Ltd
in the form of prescient gaming advice.

By my reckoning I get my 10% of your winnings by virtue of prior
supply of technical assistance, while accepting the risk that I will receive nothing. You in turn accept the risk that your investment will bomb, but recognise your obligation to pay if it comes in a winner.

Seems fair to me. :|

Cheers

No nothing missed Billy. Just hoping that perhaps some minor details in the fine print may have been bypassed by your good self. A microscopic examination of page 1215 may reveal your rights.

Cheers Murray ;P
