watch out for the maths teachers

i teach kids how the stockmarket always goes up, up, up and then convince them to chuck in \$100 each for me to invest on their behalf

who gives a @#\$% about the squirrels and birds we can always rejuvenate them using their DNA in the future - actually there's a great biotech company about to make a breakthrough in this area which is worth getting on...send me your money
