    It is an entertaining read even if you don't care about the scam itself. The guy has a humorous style.

    3) Support game play in a near-simulation environment. Where the focus of play would not be solely on doing what it takes to win, but doing so utilizing real-world combat strategy and tactics rather than leveraging exploits provided to players by the design of the game engine.

          The biggest lie in that tale:

          "It is a story of liars, bandits, and greed. It is a story of the worst of the human condition, and how the motive for profit will drive a normally nice guy to the deepest depths of evil and betrayal."

            Wow .... That was amusing alot of big persons words, but amusing he reminds me of the Artemis fowl books.

            God why would he do such a thing if i were him i would make an alternate and work on him as im scamming. (which i don't)

            Also i understand that he was greedy after he was killed by the pirates millions of times and he created the "Idea", but after he did it i guess the experience changed him.

                That was a great story, and in the end he saw the truth. In absolute wealth you shall find no happieness, no sense of acomplishment, not for long anyway. And without a way to use what you have, when you posses a surplus of such a scale, it becomes forever meaningless.

                The moral: It is the journey that matters, not the destination, and if you work for only personal profit, you will find only emptiness.
                War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety is a miserable creature, who has no chance at being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. -- John Stuart Mill--

                  Actually this story might be false. Actually I'm pretty sure most of it is false.

                    Notice I said it was a great story, not that it was true. True or not, its a great story, and has a awesome moral.

                            So funny that you would say this. When I saw the link to "More" I thought of the movie below.

                            Peace through fear... since 1947!
