Bad faith bargainers are everywhere. I've had fools offer $50.00 for my
JobSecurity.Com domain name.
My favorite occurred during the "pc revolution" -- maybe 1990. My buddy Bill
and I stood in a line at an XBASE convention. The guy in front of me heard me
discussing C programming.
He turned to me and said "could you write me a word processor program?"
I said "Anything's possible to program, but that's a huge job. Why don't you
just use WordPerfect?"
His response: "I'd have to pay $249 to buy WordPerfect!"
