 addspras Aug 30, 2009 this is my first teaser, please be gentle ! pating Sep 03, 2009 I'm a little lost with the terms! stil Dec 24, 2009 The only tease involved comes from the goo of international grammar. "His profit" for "his client's profit." "Cost price" for "purchase price." Once gain and margin are sorted out, the tease evaporates. teddy5 Jun 18, 2010 greed=bad yousay:greed=good DuDe! :XD:
