Book 6: Resident Mad Scientist — Part V: Instant Replay


KEVYN: Thurl, how much money do we have?

THURL: As of twenty minutes ago?  None.

KEVYN: *shouting* AAAAUGH!  What's the matter?!?  What did you do??

THURL: Sir, that's the stock market for you.  Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose...

THURL: And sometimes you have no "money" because it's all tied up in a massively diversified portfolio of stocks and funds which have a paper value of a few hundred million.

KEVYN: Earmark some of that "paper value" for "flogging equipment," would you please?
