    I would tell them to their face that they were a stinking liar and should be ashamed of themselves.
    End of rant. And I am sorry.

    That $200,000,000,000,000 loss is pathetic - leave the poor fool alone he just wants to buy something more to smoke.

    I am thinking that he was leaving out key information. It was offered by a Leprechaun riding a Unicorn. The only way that machine is worth $20,000 is if it was Monopoly money.
