    Every day I get hundreds of calls from people all over the world saying "Jis, you are an investment guru with great hair, can you help me?" and I always feel it is my duty to help those without my gifts or attention to personal grooming.

    I threw together a quick flow chart to help those less fortunate than myself, there is no right answer I tell them, it is a personal choice, it is based on you and how you feel about the world around you, which is probably bleak and unwelcoming.

    Anyway, the flowchart should open up ok, I had to convert it from an excel file to a pdf to a jpg so there is quite a bit of corruption in the text which is a shame, as it is a text based visual aid but anyway you can always [Ctrl]+[+] to make it bigger. Just start at the top and pick the answer which best fits your situation, not everyone can be catered for. If anyone knows how to link a pdf let me know and I will upload it, if anyone would like to have a play around with it let me know and you can have the excel. Anyway as usual your comments are always appreciated, no really!

    A friend told me about it but I want to sell to a pikey I met in a pub - you can't help me :(

    Oh there's some funny stuff on there. Tell me more about this Silver Liberation Army... I want to buy Dunk Island.

    Comedy Gold!!!

    This is going in my briefcase to hand to new stackers... Might have to edit all of them to conclude with 'sell it to the pikey in a pub at under spot'...

    Well that was rubbish, Jislizard!

    Having studied your flow chart I'm still none the wiser about how to tame dry, unmanagable hair! :mad:


    :p

    thanks. I got so many laughs out of that. frighteningly accurate too.

    this needs to be a sticky for new members and would be a great presentation at the monthly meet.

    I think I'll be laminating a number of copies for new (and old) members at the forthcoming Brissy meet... :D

    Thanks for all your comments!

    Just realised I missed a whole area of stacking and I don't want to leave Gold Pelican hanging as I am sure he needs some stacking advice so I guess it is back to the drawing board. V2 will be on its way once I get back to work! If there was an emoticon for hanging your head in shame I woud use it.

    That one had me absolutely rolling :)

    Well done JS, thanks for the laugh!

    (By the way, my analysis said "I have trust issues"... bloody oath I have trust issues - wouldn't trust a single government any further than I could spit over my left shoulder!)

    I can't read it! When I enlarge it doesn't seem to help. Feel like I'm missing out on something here! I'll try again later - maybe I'm doing something wrong.

    Yes, it does lose a little when you convert it from an excel spreadsheet into a pdf into a jpg.

    Did you click on the thumbnail, that works for me but it isn't great!
