    Aurel, I dumped my stock the night before the price tanked out (last thursday). I couldn't believe my luck. Funnily enough, people are suggesting to buy back while it's low because it's just a knee-jerk reaction to the CEO leaving. The price will eventually go back up.

    :kickass:

    Just difference opion with the board so I think he was asked to quit, and Wall St panicked a bit.

    I do, but I don't know what that amounts to anymore. I mean, look at what happened to the CEO. :loco:

    Holy crap - excellent call, though hopefully no one catches that coincidence if it was a large amount [/Martha Stewart]

    A few years back when I worked for Marsh, I sold my stock at $47 a share a few months before a killer lawsuit against the company rocked the entire insurance industry (this was back in 2003 I believe). I made out really well, but cashed out in order to buy my first house, so it was just a coincidence and I'm really lucky I made that decision. The stock continues to sit at around the $23 mark to this day.

    LOL. I was kinda joking about this the other night with Zod & co, that it does look a bit weird that I sold all my stock hours before the CEO layoff. :tickled: That said, my stock was worth mere pennies so I don't think anyone would view me as Gordon Gekko just yet.

    Cool - unless the CEO was looked at as some kind of pioneer or visionary, you guys should be just fine.


    :lol: <---- Can't tell you how much I need that.

    One way from Frankfurt to Litchenfels is $133 USD. A rail pass for a few days go for $300+ per person. Fuck that shite! :erk:

    An economy size rental by comparison for 11 days is $444.95 USD + Insurance and other bullshit. I'd estimate that it would probably be around 400 shekels per peer when you take gas + insurance in to consideration. Compared to who knows how God damn much to train to and fro from country to country. When you add in the flexibility of the rental car it's a no brainer.

    Eric T, January 1st is approaching, try pushing your paper work through again. :)

    That sounds slightly overly expensive... have you tried doing a search on http://www.db.de/site/bahn/de/start.html just for comparison?

    It sounds overly expensive, but you forget that the USD is worth less than a barrel of cotton picked by a negar with leprosy. :erk:

    Trains here are ridiculously expensive. Try and fly closer or take a bus. Thats the "affordable" way to travel.

    There is no way in hell I can make this fest at the current outlook. Things came up, other than the passport shit.

    Essentially, I gave her 1200 bucks so she could book a flight to the US for sometime next year, which was my europe money.

    She say's she'll pay it back, but I know she's not good for it. Fuck.
