Yeah I know, I'm nitpicking again. Look, everyone makes the odd speling erra but sometimes I wonder if anyone actually reads what they type before they post.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Hello, my name is Giu and I haven't touched liquor in 2 weeks...

I need to buy an Aston Martin DB9, the problem is the car costs 230.000 Euros, so I have this idea, I will try and share my car with 8 people that will each provide 28.750 Euros. I will call them "paying passenger associates" or PPA's. The PPA's then can see me drive my car for a whole 2 years, and are free to look at it, clean it, guard and maintain. I will, as a genereous person, buy the smelly things so it smells good inside...

I will take each one of them, for a ride, on certain days of the week, based on a voting scheme or lottery.

On weekends, we all dress in orange dresses and go to Airport doors and help passengers carry their luggage, in exchange for tips that I will use to buy gas. (Shaving head is optional).

We can all feed by going to Wal Mart and other food chains, and feast on the "try out" trays that some food companies provide as part of their marketing campaigns. This is a source of full entire meals at zero cost. Voting best food is also optional. The money the PAA's save by achieving their food requirments, this way, will be deposited in an account that I and myself only can control, to prevent mutinies.

I will strongly recomend and encourage my "paying passenger associates" to date McDonalds store managers and thus be provided free meals after food shelf time has expired. Vitamins and protein survive longer than MacDonalds shelf time.

We encourage PPA's to become vegetarians and hang around in parks, wearing mini-skirts, and endure in the art of paid love. The profits of this activity will be used to pay for the head quarters of my Aston Martin, which will be a 2000sq feet house I will aquire in the Hamptons, with said profits.

Each PAA will be allowed to chose the colour of the Aston MArtin, but the coulor will be light metalic silver.

What do you guys think???? Please no rude answers, and I don't want to hear that the Ferrari Enzo is better...I made up my mind.

Ahh the prettiest PAA of the feminine gender will be free to perform sex with me, having the honour to not charge me.
