Words cannot express the gratitude we feel to the elders and all of those who have helped get this to the starting line, the sense of awe, and the wonder on how we are all going to get out there and start this off. Doing good and trying not step on each others toes. Cant wait to find those places that value your spirit and your personage more than check book. Maybe they've already seen some of the "Johnny come lately" types throwing money around wanting to prove who the swinging cod piece in the room is...
Not sure how much currency other have so I like to say I'm somewhere in the "middle" of that pack. Not that it will matter.
2.00 Quad of Zim may now exchange at.
giving us 4.88 Quadrillion... Eat your heart out, Scrooge McDuck!! .
By comparison, Bill Gates net worth today as the BAMF of money is what, 86 Billion?
Your Net worth with ONLY 2 Quad, at screen rates is just a meager 56,744.18 TIMES what Mr. Microsoft is tallying today.
At what point should we all take the briefest of moments to say. Even at screen, Non NDA, were good!!! While we all plan to use so much money, we can quickly start being duplicitous in our efforts, wasting the time, energy, and resources we intend to save.
And while the Warren Buffet donations may have taken a bit more sacrifice on his part, that whole dynamic of personal wealth, combined with charitable giving,,, Watch the freak out, world, we have been waiting in the starting blocks for this one.
We had probably use a fair bit of discretion here. just because you didn't sign an NDA (neither do I intend to) shouldn't mean we have a few bills burning a hole in our pockets.
Last thing any of us wants is to walk into Yosef's place, see him face down "Tony Montana style" in a mountain o white, just to have him pop up and say that line just for Ubiety, "I always tell the truth, even when I lie..."
I submit we should discuss leaving quite a bit w HSBC. Otherwise we may just create the hyper inflated scenario that brought the Zim to us in the first place.
And if you show up in another land, hell bent on being a force of nature, and what do you find? That bastard, One Who Knows, is already on your job site... lets figure it out and work together.
Start at the grass roots level. Clergy and those dependent on donations know how to get the best value from a gift and are usually very in tune to the needs of a community, Orphanages, Schools... when a community learns that you are a person of integrity, committed to their long term well being, they will give you more projects to finance than we probably will want.
Which brings me back.. Once we have decided to walk before sprinting to the super freighter full of water and grain, At some point we all are going to need to tap out and let Jimmy Super Fly Snuka, in to come flying off the third turn buckle, to shut all those "Hulk-a -maniacs" right the hell up! or to smack that skirt wearin Rowdy Roddy around.
Or maybe he can help us plan, start, finish or wrap up a project. For, without balance, you simply go from one unhealthy extreme to the other.
Suggest we keep these channels open. We may be better suited and financiers, but even then, we can have too many cooks in the kitchen.
We play it smart, we plan our work and then we work our plans, and we are probably carrying around big bank accounts that are obsolete long before we thought. with the plans I had assembled for our company presentation, We are bound to be sitting down for a cup of coffee with some of you at some point to discuss collaborative effort.
My #1 rule for myself. "Above all else know thyself! Know what motivates you, use it. Know your weaknesses, avoid them! Know when it is time to ask help from another. Know when it is time to offer yours!!
It might just be what the doctor ordered. To be working alongside you some day just to find out, your were Cowboy Down Under, Or Poof, Or Mt Goat. That would bring a laugh or two.
With that, I say, "thank you" for the ride this far. Warm up laps done, getting stretched, and ready to go. Can't wait to make a difference. Don't forget to make that difference in your own home as well. Even if all our difference is, is Making Sargent Slaughter look like the over dressed runner up he was!
