Every plan of campaign ought to have several branches and to have been so well thought out that one or other of the said branches cannot fail of success.

-- Bourchet

Well I guess you all weren't listenin' when I voted for Deadmanwalking so I guess I'll vote for Arrow and if that don't do it then just sign both of us up for the job. Our plan is to corner the market on toilet paper, Give 'em lots of MRE's with lots of greasey food in it with plenty of water and pop corn along with a good supply of prunes and then ...drumroll here..Don't sell 'em any toilet paper!!!!!!! We figure they will give it up in three days and then the coup de gras..we're gonna let them mop up the place......Deadmanwalking, under command of Generalisimo Arrow.

Oh I just thought of one problem with this plan, they do not use toilet paper to begin with. Might be better to sell them the MRE's and then withhold water instead. I have seen this have some very bad side effects ;-)
