Save those Profits
I now have a goal in life. Actually a goal within a goal. So, my goal is to profit enough in my trading so that I could finally afford that trip into space orbit. "Galactic Suite," the first hotel planned in space, expects to open for business in 2012." And for a pittance of $4million for a three-day stay (not including the tropical island training course). $3billion was fronted to build the hotel pod and they have calculated that there are 40,000 people in the world who could afford to stay at the hotel. So that would be a $160billion profit (before expenses) if they could just twist those 40,000 arms enough to get them to want to take the trip. Well, if they run short on people to go they could always create a reality TV show around it where a bunch of catty degenerates compete to be the one's to take the trip. The advertising dollars for that would have to exceed the $4million dollar costs.
