Michael, first of all you do not know why you live where you live. Your complaining about the snow. You say you want to live where its warm! You then suggest, Floriduh!
Why the hell would you want to live in a state where people cannot read! They cannot cast a vote correctly! They all eat supper at 4:00 or 4:30 because that's when the resturants have the senior specials! Do you really want to live with a bunch of former New Yorkers? Get real!
I would strongly urge you to consider moving to another place!
Forgive me if I misunderstood your question. As a Crown & Anchor Platinum Member, there is a chance you will be upgraded but it depends solely on inventory and whether an upgrade is available....dont bank on it.
RCI will sometimes run upgrade promotions for Diamond and Platinum members.

Women first discovered it when they got infections. (Please don't send hate mail. I know its gross, but I was ROFL and couldn't resist).
This is totally in jest, but I do beg your pardon, I live in north Florida, I believe the ballot problem began in SOUTH Florida. We northern Floridians drew an imaginary line, have thus created our own state and totally disassociated ourselves. I have another theory also, south Florida is mostly Democratic, northern Florida is mostly Republican, I believe that answers the question. Not all of us are FloriDUH. !

Well Pat, we know its not Pittsburgh (or Calgary, Alberta, Canada for that matter).

Judging from this question I'd surmize U have to be from California, because this entire scenario has to do with the debacle of the deregulation of the electric power industry.
The cost of electricity to the meat packing plants for running all those vacum cleaners that pick up the meat shavings off the floor which they form into balogna has gone through the roof.

Until U turn away, of course.

Indeed it is true! Many cruise lines offer free passage to those with a talent for instruction or lecturing about all sort of crafts, or topics they feel will entertain their passengers. For example, they'll use Bridge Instructors, dance instructors, or even male dance hosts (if U happen to be male).
On the other hand, these "work for cruise" jobs aren't that easy to come by. If they were do U think I'd be wasting my time working as a Sage.
and all round Sage
I think you may be missing the boat, err opportunity, concerning your, work for cruise answer above. I certainly believe that most cruise line would be willing to offer you that option. You are not wasting your time as a Sage, we need your knowledge. Of course to really capitalize on this opportunity for yourself, you would have to create some sort of character/gimmick. Does the Great Carnak come to mind. You would provide entertainment to the passengers while answering their most perplexing questions. You can be called the "Pursor of Knowledge". Maybe they can set up an office in the library for you. This would probably work best on the more laid back cruises. Maybe trans-atlantic, when people have time to contemplate the unanswered questions of life. For example, have any passengers ever tried to fish from the side of the ship? I have seen members of the crew fishing from lower decks in the Carribean. Just wondering.
Until next time on Sage. Thank you for your reply.
Three men went to a hotel and were told that there was only one room left and that it would cost $30 for the night. They paid $10 apiece and went to the room. The desk clerk, discovering that by mistake he had overcharged them by $5.00, asked the bellboy to return the $5.00. The bellboy, not being as honest as the desk clerk, reasoned that since $5.00 is not easy to divide three ways, he would keep $2.00 and return $1.00 to each of the three men. Each man then actually paid only $9.00 apiece or a total of $27.00 for the room. Add to this the $2.00 the bellboy kept and the total is $29.00. Where did the missing dollar go?
When the desk clerk gave the bellboy $5.00 that meant one man paid $9.00 and the other two paid $8.00. Giving $3.00 back meant one man paid $10.00 and the other two paid $9.00 for a total of $28.00 plus the $2.00 the bellboy kept = $30.00. The question is flawed in that it suggests all 3 men paid only $9.00.
I hope everyone is happy now as it took me 3 hours of mental anguish, tossing and turning in bed to figure that one out.
I agree with you completely and have no argument whatsoever. Everyone knows the $30 is there. That is not the problem I was trying to solve. I wanted to figure out the trick to the question which made it appear as though $1 was missing. This I believe I've done. It's this simple. The $2 the bellboy had should have been subtracted from the $27 to get the actual cost of the room $25 and not added to it to get $29.
30 - 3 - 2 = 25 It all adds up then but the question wanted you to do this...
30 - 3 + 2 = 29 The question tried to fool you twice by getting you to add the bellboys $2 rather than subtract it and by making you think that the answer was $30 rather than $25.
No hard feelings I hope. You were trying to get the numbers to add up and I was trying to figure out the trick to the question. Alan
