    [​IMG] Reading through the many "where do you live" and "what do you do" threads (like http://www.sorcerers.net/ubb/Forum7/HTML/001556.html ) I had a thought.....

    We have a very talented crew on this forum. Bel is a lawyer, Bogi is a software designer for a treasury department, etc ... etc.

    So I was thinking ... who can put together our crew and design the perfect crime / scam / heist /etc ... ala Ocean's 11.

    [Note ... this is pure fiction and will not be enacted. its just an exerercise for our imaginations.]

    [​IMG] Mathetais - Luckily you put that disclaimer at the end, because anyone becoming involved in this little enterprise of yours would immediately become a co-conspirator by offering plans in furtherance of the crime. As you know, being on the verge of entering into a profession that holds the law sacrosanct, I would never knowingly be a part of any illegal act.

    But, since this is for entertainment purposes....:grin:

    My suggestion is to go for some high tech internet banking or white collar heist jobbie - It's generally very lucrative, only big faceless corporations get hurt financially...and they can always write off the loss. Plus, after you're caught, you go to a nice cushy minimum security country club. I don't know about you - but I could certainly use the conjugal visits. :spin: :roll: ;)

    Yeah Math, let's steal and give to the poor :)

    I'm doing the helpdesk part for when something doesn't work.

    Marnix: Crime-group how can I help you?
    Math: The bomb doesn't explode!
    Marnix: Is the bomb connected to the power-net and is the on/off button switched to "On"?

    If you ever need an innocent-looking decoy to occupy guards while you do the dirty work...or an agile spy who is short and fits very easily in small corners, and possesses a keen sense of hearing.... ;)

    [​IMG] Marnix do you know Carpenters movie Dark Star? Maybe the bomb will call you "personally". :)
    But Math has to play our SSE*. He's the one to care for aid from high above.

    Rip off the stadiums, they have lots of money from tickets, or the Louvre, not enough security.

    Yea, I'm all for the concept of stealing from the rich and giving to the poor and deserving.

    I'm poor and deserving, so give me all your money. :D

    What about robbing all the Enron executives? They must have alot of money by now and we would have the popular opinion behind us. The police wouldnt look that hard ;)

    I am the man behind the gang, you know he they just talk to on the phone when everything goes to hell.

    [​IMG] You can't rely on muscle, you guys have none. You got to think brains. If any thing goes wrong in your hairbrained plot, say you saw it on a South Park episode or blame me. And if all else goes wrong leave it to Beaver. :)

    Oh, youll need me. I wont even take a lot of the money, but you need a frontliner... the guy who gets out there to pick the pockets and lockes that need picked... drop the packages, 'acuire' the necicary supplys. Just give me 6 dollars an hour for my work, and Ill gladly do anything you need... just for the thrill.

    Hi my name is ShadowDaemon and I am a recovering kleptomaniac. I spent the entire year betwwen when I started driveing and when I got chaught for the first time stealing for three major stores dayly. And many other minor and specialty stores when the muse took me. I can find a weekness in any cammera setup, and I can find and remove/nullify any magnetic security devices. I was offered a job as an undercover wal-mart security guard If I would only tell them truthfully everything Id ever stollen. They didnt belive me, I didnt get the job :(

    ShadowDaemon, if you need a decoy who steals good but not good enough, allowing you to work you magic, I am at your service while you do the actual job for the Eleven... :)

    Looking at the number of houses etc of certain Enron exec's, I'd say we could pull off a gigantic scam in the energy sector. That would certainly pay the way for a comfortable lifestyle for all concerned.

    Take one small energy company, float it, blag the share price up, produce fantastic results that are total fiction, Show a healthy balance sheet by ignoring half your liabilities, and get Anderson to destroy the evidence.

    Hmm, worked for Enron. Why not us?

    To partially quote a great movie, after translation to English;

    What's wrong with a last night's ****derogatory expression of sexual intercourse***?

    It's already done.

    I hope this doesn't get deleted... If it does, I apologze beforehand.
