As to my signatures - here's the first three. :wink:

1. Once you have their money, never give it back

2. You can't cheat an honest customer, but it never hurts to try

3. Never spend more for an acquisition than you have to

I'm sure many people here will know what they are. :P

Don't look at me, I haven't the foggiest what he's on about. :?

Unless it's Making Money. :?

In many ways the Ferengi are the most human of Star Trek characters. They are a parody of capitalists. 24th Century humans have moved beyond that sort of thing. :lol:
