Every now and then I get emails or letters from experimenters who want an opportunity to work in a lab with others. All of them think they have something that will be ‘the next big thing’, almost always free energy related. One recent email from a fellow in New Zealand who has been working with VEDIC math and sees how it can be applied to optimize many existing devices of all kinds. He claimed he had an investor who had put in 4.5 million dollars and wanted to know if I would be interested in moving there to use the VEDIC math as applied to Keely’s claims. Several emails later with little details from him and that deal fell through.
Many other emails had things like ‘I will sleep on the floor and eat beans without pay for the chance to work in your lab with talented experimenters.’ All of them (us) have a pet project of course but are willing to share their experience and talents to work on other projects. I love organizing and working with talented teams of people who can see beyond the ‘rules’ of orthodox science.
The most fantastic of the bunch of ‘investors’ was recently presented as an offer to work for a company as VP of Technology where I would find them inventors and devices, ideally with at least a working model, that they could develop and use in their projects or sell outright.
The promises and offers made were beyond anything I’d ever heard of or would ever ask for or expect; new vehicle of my choice that I own, private plane of my choice that I own, hottest, fastest laptop on the market, international cellphone, unlimited travel and expense account, $120,000 a year, private condo in a luxury resort at my disposal year round, use of corporate jet as necessary for business or travel needs and many smaller items/bonuses including an equal payment to me for any deal struck with any inventor or company they contracted with at my recommendation. As well a special retirement fund for personal financial security.
Sound way too good to be true? Of course, nothing ever came of it. One broken promise followed another and another without end. Always excuses for why they couldn’t follow through with any of their promises, not even for a couple thousand in my bank account as a good faith offer. Now over a year later and they have done nothing per our arrangement and my contact threatened to ‘make me disappear’ if I wrote anything about them on the net. He wrote that he would show me what big money can do, to resolve ‘problems’. How is that for a confidence builder? A death threat.
Rather than just quit the lying and posturing with fantastic promises, why not wait til the money was actually available instead of boasting how much they had and what all they were planning to do. I suggested in the first month they he refrain from the promises and wait until everything was organized and available, but he just kept coming with ever more grandiose claims of what they were doing and how I could work for them and be well rewarded. Right, b’lieve dat.. I detest intentional lies, an error is ok if it is corrected, but don’t just lie all the time. Maybe he was a lawyer?
I don’t have the business acumen or contacts to solicit investment and haven’t found anyone I trust to do it for me. Well, trust is probably the wrong word, it is more like they have no track record of successes in securing financing for investment, though they claim they do OR they come on as investors with money that is ‘soon to come through’ yet which never does..
That could just as well be applied to me in not having invented/discovered some major technology, but then I wouldn’t be asking for investment as I could finance it all myself. See the Lab Project for details of a very simple yet potentially very lucrative business proposition. I keep hoping someone out there will read it or share it with ‘moneyed’ friends who might invest and make a lot of things happen.
Today it was sunny, nice and warm here but very cold last night. Paid a mexican a friend to rip out patio growths in my small backyard to make a big pile that I will let dry out, then burn and haul off the leftovers. Creeping vines and spiny tree things that will easily penetrate your hand. But the worst of it are all the tiny bugs that live in the leaves and vines. They swarm at a touch of the leaves so he had to wear a faceshield and gloves.
I’m working on several new ebooks and DVDs to sell on the Vanguard Sciences site to help with living expenses and running KeelyNet. It is a lot of work and I hope people make purchases that will not only add to their knowledge base but also give them some great ideas for experiments and saving money and even new theories with ebooks and the one DVD that I currently offer. All of it very low cost for what you get and I have several friends who often chastise me for not jacking up prices like some do. Times are tough and people need value for their bucks.
One problem, I don’t even pretend to understand how Google Adsense works. When I first started it paid about $500 a month, then went up to +$850. Despite the number of visitors being fairly regular at around 2000 a day, the payments went down to $600, then $500 and now $400???? Nothing has changed on my side of it, but it is very unreliable for a steady income these days. I have tried other services but $12-$20 a month certainly isn’t worth the time or space.
I’d rather not but hey, gotta make a living and I’d just as soon not get involved in some of the scam opportunities so often presented to me to participate in.
Play fair, be honest and try to treat others like you’d want to be treated.
