Exceptional Profits From Thinking "Out of the Box"

Want to pay for your pilot license

Want to buy a new airplane

want to buy your yacht

want to buy a house on the b/each to keep the wifehappy

Wamt to turn $7671 into $26,572,036.50

http://goldfund.x10.mx/7671/

If you buy gold and are tired of geting whipsawed

by price fluctuations that wipe out your profits

perhaps it is time to think differently about ypir

trading strategy.

First, there are some things to think about that

are not so obvious although the are staring you

in the face every day.

TAXES

OFFSHORE DEAL -- NO TAXES WITHELD

What about the price of gold today ? You can check

the price of gold today 24/7 at a little known

website http://goldfund.x10.mx/7671/

Why should something that is dug out of the ground

be so expensive.....

Well there is more to it than the obvious.

First, gold, when it comes from the mines is not

completely pure and it is about 7000 miles from the

world marketplace.....it does not have a serial

number on it and a chain or custody.

But it is much less expensive....when bought at

the mine level prices...

Is it worth the price differential for the stamp

of approval it gets from the London Metal Exchange

(LME)or the New YORK METAL EXCHANGE (NYMEX)

WELL...YES AND NO.....YES IF YOU HAVE NO WAY TO BUY AT

MINE LEVEL PRICES AND HAVE NO GUTS FOR THE PROBLEMS

INHERENT IN MOVING THE GOLD FROM MINE TO LONDON OR NEW

YORK....

But you pay a big premium for this peace of mind..

BUT IF ANOTHER ALTERNATIVE EXISTS TO AVOID THAT PREMIUM

THEN IT MAY BE WORT THINKING ABOUT BUYING GOLD "OUT OF

THE BOX" AT MINE LEVEL PRICES....

NOW THERE IS THE QUESTION OF RISK.

WhAT iS RISK?

RISK IS UNCERTAINTY.....IS THE GOLD REAL?.....CAN I

TRANSPORT IT 7000 MILES?........CAN I SELL IT?..

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET PAID"

IS THERE ANY WAY TO LEVEL THE PLAYING FIELD AND PICK UP

A VERY LARGE PROFIT FOR ASSUMING SOME OF THOSE

RISKS.....AND DO IT RELIABLY, TIME AFTER TIME....

THE ANSWER IS CLEARLY YES.....BY INVESTING WITH SOMEONE

WHO IS DOING IT SUCCESSFULLY....

HERE ARE THE CONSIDERATiONS THAT ARE 'OUT OF THE BOX'

FIRST PROBLEMS

EXPERIENCE IS THE BEST TEACHER BUT THE TUITION IS VERY

HIGH.......SO JOIN WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN THERE DONE

THAT.......AND GET A FAIR SHARE OF THE PROFITS.

WHAT IS A "FAIR SNARE"

WE THINK A FAIR SHARE IS A 50-50 SPLIT IS A FAIR SHARE

MUCH BETTER DEAL THAN BANKS GIVE WITH PUNY INTEREST

PAYMENTS OF 2-3% OR EVEN 10%AND THE BANKS KEEP 90 %

IS THAT FAIR ?

BANKS THE WORLD OVER THINK IT IS FAIR.....

WE DONT

HOW MUCH PROFIT IS THERE

WELL THERE IS ONE WAY TO BUY IN WITH SAMPLE 5KG SAMPLE

PACKS FOR $7,671 WHICH PAYS FOR EXPORT DUTIES, SHIPPING

AND INSURANCE.....AND THE GOLD IS PAID FOR AFTER IT IS

ASSAYED AND SOLD INTO THE INTERNATIONAL MARKETPLACE...

THE PAYBACK FOR YOUR SHARE IS $61,093.25 SO LONG AS

GOLD STAYS ABOVE $1,250 / TROY OUNCE.

THAT IS A RETURN ON INVESTMENT OF 796 % OR

MORE.......DO THE MATH

AND IT GETS EVEN BETTER.

USING THE MAGIC OF COMPOUNDING AND DOING IT JUST 4

TIMES WITH THE VERY HIGH 796 % RATE OF RETURN, YOUR

$7,671 BECOMES $26,758,853

HERE IS THE MATH

GOLD HAS 32.1507466 TROY OUNCES PER KILOGRAM

IF THE NYMEX SPOT PRICE OF GOLD IS $1,250/TROY OUNCE

GROSS PRICE PER KG = 32.1507466 X $1,1250 =

$40,188.93/KG X 90.167 (OUR NET PRICE AFTER ASSAY)

=$36,236.70 OUR GROSS

12,000.00 LESS OUR COST

= 24,236.70 NET PROFIT / KG

X 5 KG

-----------------------

=$121,333.50 GROSS PROFIT/

$60,666.75 YOUR HALF

TURN 1 PROFIT IS $ $60,666.75

$60,666.75 IS A 790.8 % RETURN ON $60,666.75

THIS WILL BUY 7 MORE SAMPLE PACKS

TURN 2 PROFIT IS $ 424,667.25

WILL BUY 55 MORE SAMPLE PACKS

TURN 3 PROFIT IS 55 X $60,666.75 = $3,336,371.25

$3,336,371.25 WILL BUY 438 MORE PACKS

TURN 4 PROFIT ON 438 PACKS IS $26,572,036.50

NOW YOU ARE NOT TRADING AND YOU ARE NOT INVESTING IN

GOLD MINING STOCKS......BOTH OF WHICH HAVE A LOT OF

RISK OF THEIR OWN.

IN THIS CASE, THIS COMPANY BUYS GOLD "IN THE BAG" NOT

"IN THE GROUND MAYBE WE HOPE"....THAT REMOVES THE RISK

OF A MINING STOCK.......

THEY ADD VALUE BY TAKING THE GOLD TO A REFINERY IN THE

US TO BE CERTAIN IT REALLY IS GOLD, SND NOT A BAG OF

DIRT, BEFORE THEY PAY....

AND THEY HAVE SOME OTHER SAFEGUARDS BUILT IN....SUCH AS

AN AGREEMENT IN SOME CASES TO DEFER PAYMENOF EXPORT

DUTIES BY LEAVING SOME OF THE GOLD FOR COLLATERAL WITH

A GOVERNMENT REVENUE DEPARTMENAND GETTING SOME CREDIT

WITH AN AIRLINE SHIPPING DEPARTMENT FOR SPACE AVAILABLE

CARGO......AND WITH LOCAL PEOPLE TO INSPECT THE GOLD

BEFORE IT IS ACCEPTED FOR SHIPMENT.....THIS KEEPS THE

CON MEN AT BAY.....REMEMBER THIS IS A CASE OF GOLD "IN

THE BAG" NOT "GOLD IN THE GROUND YOU HOPE" WHICH IS

WHAT YOU BUY WITH MINING STOCKS

AND YOU ARE GETTING INCREDIBLE LEVERAGE THAT IS

IMPOSSIBLE TO GET ANY OTHER WAY.....BOTH BY THE CREDIT

EXTENDED BECAUSE THE GOLD IS NOT PAID FOR UNTIL IT IS

ASSAYED GIVING AN EFFECTIVE 15:1 LEVERAGE

WHERE DO I FIND IT....THERE IS A WEBSITE AT

HTTP//GOLDFUND.X10.MX/7671/

WHERE YOU CAN FIND OUT THE DETAILS....

AND ONE OTHER THING......

YOU CAN PAY BY CREDIT CARD....MASTERCARD, VISA,

EISCOVER, AMERICAN EXPRESS.....AND PAYPAL

PAYPAL EVEN GIVES 6 MONTH CREDIT IF YOU HAVE GOOD

CREDIT..

AND THEY EVEN HAVE INSTALLMENT PLANS AND SAVINGS

ACCOUNTS........YOU NEED TO SEE THE ENTIRE DEAL.

GETTING BACK $26,758,853 FOR ONLY $7,671 IS A DECENT

DEAL IN AN ECONOMY WHERE IT IS HARD TO GET 5 % IN MOST

OTHER THINGS......

AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE VERY RICH TO GET IN ON THE

DEAL ONLY A ONE TIME $7,671 WILL DO IT.

THE COMPANY HAS WAITING BUYERS AND SELLERS

UNPROFESSIONAL TREATMENT

immigration, I arrived back in the country last night from the UK travelling on my UK passport, same as I have done since getting perm residence status in 1983, I accompanied my passport with a copy of my id same as I always have, I was denied entry as some idiot had stamped me in at O.R. in 2015 on a holiday 90 day.. this has now happened to me on the last two return trips, I was taken to disgusting back office and introduced me to her supervisor. he informed me things had change and my supporting docs were not enough. he then informed me that he was accommodating me by speaking ENGLISH as it was not his mother tongue. he said I could be denied entry, this after showing him my driving license, business card and proof of residency. he was still bullish and told me he only finishes at 19.00hrs. I was then sent back to passport control to a new lady, who informed me I had over stayed in the country and there was penalty's to be paid..................again I was relatively loud as I had been travelling 20 hours. they let me through but had a lot to say to each other in their language. where can I lay an official complaint ???????????????? mike

Passport picture taken by the security

I was traveling to Dublin Ireland and the security just before boarding took a picture of our passports using his cellphone. According to him this is security that we will come back after our visit. Is this the new procedures?

Immigration problem

I traveled to China last week on a return ticket to Sa.. I got to Guangzhou airport yesterday to board back and I was not allowed to board because my twin sisters passport was flagged on their system..my plane left me and had to stay for another day because they said SA system is down hence they can't verify my identity

What I don't understand is why I'm being punished for my sister because we are not even identical twins and our passport numbers are not the same, even our ID numbers.

On top of it have been trying to get hold of the immigration office and no answer

I'm stuck in China, have to buy another ticket, extend my hotel

AIRPORT CODE INCORRECT

The Airport code is incorrect.

Is should be FAOR not FAJS.

Within Windy App no METAR/TAF/NOTAM can be displayed as the Identification code is incorrect.

How can this be corrected?

How to get to VRE (vredendal ) from Tambo (JNB)

i cannot ind any compagny , flying to vredendal (not Mango not Kulula, not Sa flights)

i see many airports with pink/purple, blue ore yellow spots ,, but none is flying thre : who knows?

Picture of

Security Check totally inappropriate !!

I just got back from an overseas trip and was flying from OR Tambo to King Shaka.. when I went through the security check, the scanner had beeped so I was pulled aside to be searched.

I think it is totally unhygienic and inappropriate that the security do not wear gloves when they conduct the search on your body.

No one would want someone else to be touching their clothes especially when we don't know where those hands have been.

The airport security company should definitely implement a new way of conducting the search. Making sure that they include wearing of gloves when conducting a search

PATHETIC SERVICE ASSISTED PASSENGER CARE DEPARTMENT / CENTR

Good Day

I would like to bring to your attention the pathetic, devastating experience I had last night whilst being at the OR Tambo Airport.

I brought my mum in who was flying to kzn on a Mango flight. she had just come out of hospital and had to be on a wheel chair. My mum was taken to the ASSISTED PASSENGER DEPARTMENT at the Airport. the staff members on duty at that time are extremely unfriendly and rude. The Manager that was there (Thoko) has no customer service at all. she was screaming and shouting at us. my mom was waiting for an hour no one had assisted us or asked if any help was needed. the flight was at 8:50 pm at 8:40 we had to ask if someone is going to take her to the plane as she was in a wheel chair. The Wheel Chair assistant was also very rude she just left my mom unattended he name is Kelegibole her attitude stinks she should be fired you don't treat people that way. We are paying for the services and expect to be treated well.

I trust that action be taken against that department. they were all eating and playing with cell phones and screaming and laughing instead of being professional that place was a fish market.... this incident is being reported to the consumer board as well and to the newspapers. OR Tambo will get a bad name due to staff members you have employed above............

I demand that serious action be taken. If needed I will personally come to the Airport and identify all those staff members.....

Bad Attitudes

What bad attitude from Passport Control Officials. These people shout from counter to counter, laughing and joking and when you are spoken to , you are spoken to like a piece of dirt. BAD ATTITUDES and what a poor reflection on our country . Never seen this anywhere in the world .

BAD BAD BAD ATTITUDE

Picture of

Why is passport control so badly managed?

I fly a lot. Every time I land back at OR Tambo I'm struck by how badly passport arrivals are managed. Typically only few counters staffed while queues have 300+ people.

Why is this? They do know the planes that are scheduled to land. It's not a surprise group of customers.

Gross incompetence compared to most other countries in the world. And it's been like this for years

I wanna say it is large and impressing

Emigration counters JNB airport

How on earth does the department of home affairs explain their DISMAL shortage of staff manning the emigration counters at what is supposed to be the country's main airport?

It's actually PATHETIC!

Jumping the line

After waiting in line for half a hour to check in and finally reaching the front, the check in official instructed all the passengers travelling to PE to move to the front. Although I was also traveling to PE, all the passengers from the back of the line rushed in front to jump the que. What a frustrating experience.

Horrendous wait, long queues.

What a place to waste your life. If you are in the mood for the most bureaucratic and lackadaisical service, this may be it! Perhaps SA should open up international tourism for bureaucratic incompetence and unintelligent planning.

Worst service ever

I've travelled to many international destinations, and travel to OT at least once a year. It has to be the worst service you expect on this planet. And even worse - the service is getting more pathetic every year. I do not mind the long flight to ZA, but the customs reception at OT is disgusting to say the least.

Customs and passport control upon arrival

There is a problem at our airport. Visitors are having to wait more than an hour to get sorted out!! There were two people on duty for 400 people at the passport control when my family came through. And a very slack attitude. This is distressing. It puts visitors off!! Come on. This needs to be an efficient and friendly service. Celeste Bortz. Johannesburg

Johannesburg Airport Your Passport Control is a DISGRACE

Today we flew from Cape Town and the airport was super efficient however when we arrived at Johannesburg we not only had to wait ages to collect our suitcases but going through passport control was total CHAOS, we got in line for 2 hours and finally at the desks we found only 8 officers at 16 desks, please get your act together as I see this has been going on for years, we will never go to Johannesburg again but gladly fly in & out of Cape Town.

Picture of

Extremely rude immigration staff

I was traveling to JHB OR Tambo from Abu Dhabi Etihad flight. Upon landing at JHB, I proceeded to the passport control hall. It was all full since some other flights had also arrived same time. I had to wait in line for almost 2 hours. Then when my turn came, I handed over my passport to the officer for stamping. The officer with his SHIT attitude said to me why didn't I greet him at first. I mean how does it make sense? I walked to the counter and handed over the passport. After waiting in line for 2 hours I may not be in a mood to greet him! And is it not his responsibility as well to greet people entering in his country? Total SHAME! That counter is actually the entry gate to the country and when you face such rude people you feel like never coming back to the country. Is this how you welcome guests into South Africa? Really?

Also while waiting in line there was no sitting arrangement, no water nothing! There was free Wi-Fi just for name sake. (which didn't work as expected).

Picture of

Absolute chaos

It took me nearly two hours to get through passport control at Joburg airport this morning after my flight from the UK. It was absolutely chaotic with no organisation the queues were four deep and there were very few passport staff available. When approached the staff were most unhelpful avoiding eye contact and shrugging their shoulders saying we the travelling public were being aggressive. This is my first visit to South Africa, and I'm sorry to say it will be my last after this experience. Not a way to encourage tourism.

Home Affairs agent refused to allow me into South Africa bec

I just passed through JNB airport (16:10 PM on December 21). I am on a one-night layover from Malawi to the United States, a layover I have a half dozen times per year for work-related travel. As I have completed this exact itinerary many times in the past, I was one of the first off of my flight to arrive in the cue for non-visa countries. Much to my dismay, between when I entered the metal maze to get to the front and when I actually got to the front, a Home Affairs agent had allowed dozens of people from the visa-required line into the non-visa line. So, I was about 30 people back in line than I would have been if I had gotten to the metal maze 30 seconds earlier seconds earlier. Now, I can understand reallocating people across lines, but the problem is that visa-required visitors take a longer time to process, so it is inefficient for everyone and frustrating for customers to reallocate people between these lines. By the time I got to the front of the line, I was admittedly impatient. I did not say anything, however, as I stepped up to the desk. The Home Affairs woman looked at me and said, "Choose another line." And I said, "Why?" And she said, "I did not like how you threw your passport at me." I moved to another line, where I was processed expediently.

Now, as a technical point, it would have been impossible for me to actually throw my passport, as I had to reach around the previous person to even put it on the counter, as he was taking a long time to pack up his belongings.

But that is, of course, not the point. The point is that it is not the role of an immigration agent to decide who gets to enter the country based on manners or demeanor. They process documents, not personalities. Further, my behavior was not at all problematic. I did not say a single word to her or take any action other than putting my passport on the counter. Again, I fully acknowledge I was impatient. But given the notorious lines at security and passport control at the Johannesburg airport, this is, unfortunately, a common sentiment among the customers waiting in line. As a visitor in this country, I have no obligation to arrive smiling and deferential when I greet the Home Affairs agent. For better or for worse, I am entitled entry to the country regardless of my mood, as long as my documents are in order and I present no security risk.

In fact, there is some argument to be made that I, as the visitor and the customer, have less of an obligation to be solicitous and courteous than she does, as a customer service agent representing the South African government and the first point of contact for hundreds of visitors to the country every day. The most unfortunate part of this interaction is that I told two people of the interaction after it happened and before I wrote this email - one person who let me go ahead of him in the other passport line, and one person at the baggage claim. Both said the same thing: β€œWell, welcome to South Africa.” It is people like this Home Affairs agent - people who prioritize their ego over hospitality, who wish to judge visitors instead of welcome them, and who believe they have power and discretion they do not have - that make people worldwide believe that South Africa is an unfriendly place. This belief, in turn, affects South Africa’s position in the global economy.

I sincerely hope that JNB takes this situation as an opportunity to educate Home Affairs agents on being ambassadors of courtesy and generosity to those visiting the country. South Africa certainly doesn’t need more of a reputation for exclusion and judgement.

Passport check didn't stamp passport intentionally

Waited in like for my passports to be checked. Flying with a minor sister. The woman at the desk, Siphiwe Nkosi, then proceeded to threaten to cancel my flight as I was on my phone. My sister pointed out that the no cellphone sign was covered with a handwritten piece of paper that said RSA passports. She argued back with us and told me to Thula. Luckily, I checked my sister's passport which she intentionally hadn't stamped after the argument. Her supervisor was rude and did not once apologize for the poor behaviour of this woman. She knew that an unstamped minor's passport would make it impossible for us to get into any country!!!!!!

Whatever happened to Dunnottar Air Force Base ?

Whatever happened to Dunnottar?

Postby ICEMAN Β» Sat Apr 15, 2006 4:06 pm

I know the airforce deserted Dunnottar Airfield a couple of years ago, maps show it as "abandoned". The runways were huge and managed multiple formations of training harvards simultaneously....

Anyone know what happened to the runway and facilities? is it pvt or still government owned? It the runways are still there, it would make a spiffy :) :) :) place for a micro sortie, so any ideas who to contact for permission?

SAd to see how the bases are being closed one by one. First they use the equipment until it is broke then they pass it on to another dept and aventually its closed. I had abloody good time at Dunnottar and a number of pilots and students learnt what they today know about flying on that base. My eldest son was born there so we have asoft spot for the place and ofcourse the old trusty Harvard, and what do some of the other people who stayed at dunno's say.

Dunnottar is currently used by the Army's Engineering Corps as storage facility. :oops: The runways are parked with big truck's, bridges etc. :evil: What an ugly sight. It will never be the same again

What a pity, what a waste....... i heard a few years back that the plan was to revamp, convert and expand it into an international airport to alleviate some of the JIA traffic and congestion.

But then again, that was about the same time that the Lesotho Military open up a can of "whip-arse" on us.

Iceman,

Check with Fred Blokland, or any triker from Springs on this forum and enquire. I trained at Springs a few years ago and often, the instructor and I would go there for circuits and bumps. It was nice & quiet so you could concentrate on the flying and not worry too much about traffic.

Lately I believe that some paragliders or powered parachutists have used it as a launch site but this info is not necessarily accurate.

Regards.

Heya folks :!: :!:

Your'e right ACE Dunnottar is being used by the paragliders. Flew over there the other afternoon and whilst alerting traffic under special rules East was told to be on the lookout for some paragliders in the area.

You right about the Harvards Agent think, all S.A's have a soft spot for them. At Springs for those who are not aware you can go in one of two Harvards for either a 15 minute flip or 20 minute Aerobatic flip. Only 11 Harvards left flying in the entire country and the Harvard Club of South Africa dont know how much longer they can keep them going due to lack of support. Normal flip R450.00 and aerobatic flip R800.00.

Your's in Flying 8) 8) 8)

Chaz,

Thanks for the update, at least the facility is still being used for flying purposes.

Only 11 Harvards left flying in the entire country

wow, thats not namy left, i grew up in benoni in the 80`s and remember the large numbers of SAAF students from dunottar passing overhead on training excercises in the summer afternoons........, wave after wave of 15-20+ at a time, to be dead honest i firmly believe thats where and when my eyes first turned skywards :-(-( :-(-( .... very impressive stuff for a young boy...

(ps: Ace.... i see we share the same legal representaives.... Smith, Wesson and Associates. :wink: )

i believe that at one time, dunnottar operated the largest fleet of harvards in the world
