Great thread..

I am reminded of an old story from back in the day before WWII. An enterprising rogue made a living hawking roulette systems, his speciality was to convince wealthy widows that he had an unbeatable system but alas it was only 'lack of funds' that prevented him from winning vast amounts of money. He once convinced one very wealthy lady to provide the 'Investment' for a trip to Monte Carlo, guaranteed to double or even triple the initial investment. After two weeks with no word from the man she had entrusted her money to she sent a telegram to the hotel where he was saying inquiring for some news. The following day she received a reply that simply said 'System doing well. Send more money'
