    Subtle and Classy

    So, in the spirit of making a thread that is both subtle and classy:

    Is there anyone out there that wants to float me a million credits so that I can bet them all on the Clones to win tomorrow?

    I'm sure this will be derailed sooner rather than later, unless there are other kindred spirits looking for a handout.

    I need a handout as well. I seem to have fallen upon hard times recently in the credit arena. This may have come from losing roughly 20 million last year in the basketball season and another 2 on the Iowa game. But a stimulus package would be greatly appreciated.

    Interesting psychology there, Erik. Throw out the subtle and classy thread title, and then overtly beg. Oh heck, I'll loan you the million.......oh wait.......how about 7359?

    As I understand it, a lot of my hard times are self-inflicted from poor betting, but I'm willing to swallow my pride and accept a handout.

    The credit market has somewhat dried up, with most of the wealth being accumulated by **cough** coachdags**cough, cough** . I propose a stimulus package equal to just 0.03% of the total that he has accumulated, just a drop in the bucket really, but enough for this poor user to be able to correctly bet on ISU for tomorrow.

    Amen. Why should he keep his wealth just because he chose better than I did?

    How selfish.

    I wasn't suggesting going robin hood on him, just an influx of credits from the central credit bank. As long as everyone gets the same amount we'll all still be equal, although some will still be more equal than others.

    Whatever gets me credits gets my vote.

    If its redistribution of coachdags' wealth, I'm all in. If it's distribution from the "central bank," that's all good to me.

    Basically, the ends justify the means for me on this one. I'm twice as smart as the people of Shelbyville. Just tell me your idea, and I'll vote for it.

    As long as it meets 2 criteria:
    1) It costs me nothing. Pride doesn't count. That's obviously already taken care of.
    2) I get a boatload of credits.


    How long before this thread gets either:
    1) Closed?
    2) Sent to the cave due to class warfare discussions?

    I think some people here need some help, giving them more credits will only further their problems.

    Maybe we need a CycloneFanatic.com Gambling help group. You know something that teaches these guys how to gamble better.....

    I would like to loan you some credits, but doing so would just continue to enable you to pursue your filthy, digusting, addicting habit, so it would probably be better if I didn't. I don't want to be an enabler...

    I'm not proud. Not even looking for pity, just for more credits.

    Besides, it doesn't have to be a loan. Gifts are also accepted.

    Pride is not an option.

    Re: Subtle and Classy

    Greetings most respected CycloneErik,

    I am a widow writing to you from my home country of Nigeria. My deceased husband, rest his soul, was a wealthy industrialist. Over the years, he amassed a great fortune of Cyclone Nation Credits. However, in Nigeria, these credits are considered black market currency and the use of them in wagering on sport is a crime punishable by stoning, beheading, and then being burned at the stake. However, I realize the wealth these credits carry when it comes to social upsmanship and...how do you say...mine's bigger attitude (?) in your country. Therefore, I want to make sure these credits are put to good use.

    The bounty of this account exceeds 100,000,000 credits. I am in need of a loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent soul to assist me in moving this balance out of my home country to the United States, so the power they represent can be utilized. If you would be so kind as to assist me in this endeavour, I will make it worth your while. For your help, I would gladly provide 50,000,000 credits to you. The remaining balance, with your loyal assistance, will be donated to orphanages around your country so many young, underprivliged Americans, can grow up learning a valuable trade in the sports wagering arena and learn the value of an honest credit.

    If you would like to take this task on, please contact me at your earliest convenience. There will be a small charge of 25,000 credits that will be needed to release this account from the holders at JeremyLindInternational. Please provide me with your CycloneNation password, PayPal account ID, and mother's maiden name and I will start the transaction on your behalf. I can be reached at imfullofcrap@fughetaboutit.org.

    I paitently await a response from you. Good day.

    Credit Widow
