Now that regulations on small IPO's have disappeared and transparency is a faint memory (the misnamed JOBS bill), we can solicit money, tell the investors nothing except it is a good idea, and get to work on product development in our Airstreams at RV resorts. We need corporate jets too to fly us around while our staff flies our Airstreams on cargo planes. None of those dirty, crowded interstates for us.

Corporate duties

I agree, you do the prospectus and I'll handle sales. This type of business really lends itself to franchise opportunities. I'll get busy on that as well. I like the private jets, nothing fancy, maybe Lears to start out. Gene, you can be CFO and operations mgr. I just want to fly around the country. Between stock options and franchise fees this will be a gold mine

This would have implications for the urine-based animal-repellent business. I'm not sure being chased by a horny grizzly bear is much better than being chased by an angry one. . .

In that situation it wouldn't matter much whether he was horny or angry. Both would be bad. We may have to develop a specialty product line for such situations.

Dan, I appreciate your offer of CFO and operations, but I see myself more as an idea man who needs time and space to contemplate as luxurious resorts (I will have access to investors there). I am also willing to do highly paid speeches on the self improvement circuit and be chairman of the board. My activities will enhance the corporate purpose.

A horny bear will not kill you (note to Dan in sales—include KY in every package of BURINE) and it will not be as bad as a colonoscopy (further note to Dan—include anesthesia too), an angry bear will kill you.

I agree the Lear is a good choice so we don't appear ostentatious. Quiet elegance should be in our Mission Statement.

This leaves Vice President of Product Harvesting to Nuvi.

I shall contemplate now.

Gene

All good advice. Nuvi are you in? I am through on the forums tonight as I am choosing interior leather finishes and colors.

You know, I have ended up a vice president of every company I've helped incorporate, and I think I prefer retirement. Vice presidents end up doing most of the work.

I don't see my name anywhere on the Articles of Incorporation of this venture. . . and I'm happy to leave it that way!

I have no delusions that my airstream would keep out a starving and determined bear if I had a full ham sitting out on the kitchen table. The most vulnerable spot on the trailer is obviously the windows - a grizzly could break those out fairly easily. But as has been stated, a bear is opportunistic, and he is going to go after the nice easy tents first. They aren't going to spend unnecessary energy, like most wild creatures.

The huge advantage of the airstream in bear country, is it buys you time. If a truly maddened and determined bear decides to try to get into the trailer, I don't care how big and strong it is - it's going to take time to get into the trailer - whether through a window or by ripping off the sides or door. After the first blow, I will be up and will be moving out the emergency hatch, or short of that will have one huge knife in my hand stabbing at the bears paws and muzzle to discourage it from coming any further into the trailer (last resort). Plus I have a dog that would be going nuts.

So with all that said - what do you think the likelihood is of me getting eaten by a bear in my airstream? I would say close to zero - even if I was stupid enough to leave a ham out on the table, which I would never do. Case in point - the only story I have ever heard of a bear attacking an airstream was the one mentioned at the beginning of this thread. And what happened? She scared it off. One reported case and how many camping nights in airstreams over 70 years? Not saying there aren't other stories of attempted break ins, but that the point - attempted.

Actually on further research, there was one case of a bear tearing into a trailer in 1993 in Colorado and killing the man inside (doesn't say what kind of trailer). The bear had been a problem for some time, and had even broken into the trailer the day before when the man was away. But that is one case of a fatal trailer break in for every searchable fatal bear attack in US history. Again, I would say the odds are in our favor.

Thumbs up

I have a photo sharing start-up IPO I'm considering, I'll send Gene the negative's.
MyFace has already expressed interest.
Would consider a hostile takeover of this odiferous venture.

That's why you've been chosen VP. Obviously Dan and I are unsuited for work.

Bob, how much are you offering for the stock? I think BURINE, LLC, is worth at least ten billion dollars.

I have seen a very good cartoon on the subject Horny vs. Angry bear.. unfortunately it is not appropriate to post here. Im not sure I would like to encounter a horny bear. I do believe that one is most likely to encounter a FEMALE bear in the woods. They are the ones taking care of cubs (of course the father just takes off.. lol) and as we know a sow bear is probably the more aggressive of the sexes. The OTHER kind of bear (not the angry kind) is most likely to be encountered in a certain type of bar in large, urban areas such as San Francisco, Las Vegas, Denver, and West Hollywood....

Being a hunter I do know some people soak themselves in deer pee and camoflague to try and actually catch one.. Ive never found it necessary where I have hunted, but maybe in areas like Texas where its like europe in the middle ages and you have to be a member of the upper class to hunt and the game is scarce, deer pee is needed. Otherwise its just like bottled water.. a good scam.

For Gene and Nuvite, if you guys remember General Brewings "Beer" generic beer in the black and white cans? well why dont we can tap water in a plain silver can and sell it as AS water! we could charge 3 dollars a can.... Maybe just a small set of red numbers to designate which batch, and a barcode... We could start our own mobile microbrewery in a gutted widebody.... then we can properly appease the bears.

I'm looking for a jar of "Essense of Salmon" and an extra "Bear Repellant" label to put on it. My ex will be going to bear country soon and I want to give her some "protection".

Erick, I like the AS Water idea. We can use the same cans for BURINE and AS Water and switch labels if we build up too much inventory of one product or the other. Certainly there is a beer from Colorado that tastes about the same as BURINE.

Sorry, Get', no extra labels available now. Maybe your divorce lawyer has some.

I have to go now and choose the window coverings fabric for the Lear Jet. So many responsibilities!

Inventory?

What inventory???? C'mon you you VP's, get busy in production. I want to start flying around the country selling but I don't even have any product SAMPLES. I'll need a case (24) of each. Gene, hows that prospectus going for the IPO. I'm thinking 40 million shares at about 22.00 a share. Whoever the VP is in charge of production get your a$$ in gear and get me some product.... My bags are packed.
