    Where Enron learned Economics

    Got this from a friend... -

    A concrete-truck driver moved to Texas and bought a donkey from an old farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day.

    The next day, the farmer drove up and said, "Sorry, but I have some bad news. The donkey died in the back of the truck."

    "Well, then, just give me my money back." "Can't do that. I went and spent it already." "OK, then. Just unload the donkey."

    "What ya gonna do with him?"

    "I'm going to raffle him off."

    "You can't raffle off a dead donkey!"

    "Sure I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he's dead."

    A month later the farmer met up with the readi-mix driver and asked, "What happened with that dead donkey?"

    "I raffled him off. I sold 500 hundred tickets at two dollars apiece and made a profit of $898."

    "Didn't anyone complain?"

    "Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back."

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"
    Romans 7:14-25

    Enron is a bunch of morons. You would think they would have burned all those documents after shredding them, but the just left them in boxes, and now they have been found.

    I hear they have people putting the documents togeather like a puzzle.

    Very smart Enron, not.
