He has explained that his employment contract prevents him from making profit from any other venture.
[/quoI dont think Ebay would really breach that , besides couldnt he give a Slingshot away and get mailed the cash 1-2 weeks later.
Surely that wouldnt be official ?
If I get to go to the slingshot shoot in PA that Joerg is going to be at, I'm going to arm wrestle him for one of his slingshots. If that don't work then I'll leg wrestle him for one and if that don't work, I'll beg.
I will subject myself to the public humiliation of being slammed by Joerg to get one of his slingshots. Just think of all the bragging I could do while walking around the slingshot gathering with my Joerg slingshot.
Sarge, I can see only bad things coming out of this proposed competition!
I strongly encourage you to forego the arm and leg confrontations and proceed directly to begging!
As a physical degenerate, it's what I would do. (And the local paramedics will respect you, too -- for sparing them the inconvenience of having to revive you at the inevitable emergency response!)
...Oh, and keep this quote from Falstaff handy: "The better part of valor is discretion, in the which better part I have sav'd my life." (I use this one all the time to eloquently redeem myself after chickening out!)
Some of Joerg's slingshots can be copied without needing welding equipment or serious metalworking skills. For instance, check out his video where he shows how to copy his "W" design. The result is a slingshot which is uglier and bulkier than the original "W" but probably just as effective. A great video
just come to the PA tournament, I promise you won't regret it. Wrestling won't be necessary!
I could probably find many loopholes in my employment contract, but my own moral codex prevents me from doing that. I have signed a contract, and I will honor the spirit of the agreement, not merely the text the lawyers came up with. A man's word is a man's word, full stop.
This does not mean that I can't give presents to friends whenever I want to.
I realize the travel cost is high, but hey, life is short. Enjoy it while you can.
