Just curious how many believe a mod should be permitted to post for you?
I smell a ban.
Also, the 1920s. I'd buy shares of IBM, mail them to my parents with instructions not to open the envelope that contains them until now and write a note with only information that somebody VERY close would know in the hopes they'd have the good sense to follow the instructions. Then have a note instructing them to give me the envelope, where I would then sell them and make TONS of profit. Assuming an investment of 5000 dollars at 5 cents per share (I read somewhere that they were around there then), and taking into account the SEVERAL splits the stock has had over those years... It would be over 100 million dollars.
