Show Me The Money


The forum is off to a wild start with 2 posts. The topic? How to I cash out my money? It's not unlike when I launched Revverberation. Took a long time before anyone showed up, and the first comments were all about the money.

I expect the forum to evolve as the community swells. We're already seeing a lot of new posters to Revver. Last time folks got itchy about payouts, Revver took the highroad and cashed everyone out for all of their earnings to date. So I'm not that worried. But it's a valid concern. People are drawn to Revver for the financial incentive and it's fun to check the account balance to see how it's growing. But it's even more fun to cash the money out and buy crack.

The Revver payout is a little slow for crackheads, don't you think? They'd be out of rehab by the time their CrackPal account was replenished.

True story: A couple of my videos explain that the corner of 152nd and Crenshaw Boulevard in Gardena, California is a crack sales and redistribution point. It is an Arco gas station and crack is sold by retailers on bicycles in front of and on the side of the station.

What my videos didn't get into was a curious inscription scratched into the payphone in front of the propane tank at the north corner of the station.

On the lefthand side of the phone, down by the change slot, is "Ice MM #118". That just means crystal meth is sold out of room 118 in the Motel Marquis next door. Under that inscription is the following:

"C $$ Revver.com"

Hilarious, as always, Jarvie! We've missed you!
Funny, too...I was JUST going to write Nalts personally to suggest he "crack" the payout schedule for revver for us. I have more than enough $ in the account now to fill two SUVs with gas...I'm really sick of "coming soon". (I'll bet you heard that a lot in your old line of work as a chauffeur...;-))

I think I'll just keep posting here...even if I can hear the tumbleweeds blow by (they're not as loud as the ones on revver's forum)...you see, the revver forum doesn't even recognize my password!? Wassup wit dat?

I had the same problem with the forum. Maybe that's why it's so quiet. Send RRR an e-mail and he'll set you up. If you, Aquadad and Marquis aren't there... it will be me talking to myself.

The revver FORUM requires us to register a screenname and new password as if we didn't already have a relationship with revver MAINFRAME (what else would you call it?). I think that is appropos as the formulaic responses I got from the mainframe, when I could get them at all, never gave me the impression of having a 'relationship' with revver.

Kudos to Frogprintz for leading the charge to have revver get around to paying its suppliers. Deja vu. He's using the same arguments I used the last time revver had to be goaded into paying out.

As for the phrase "coming soon", Dawn, hahahaha, the girls always pretended that nothing more serious than a rousing game of Yahtzee was going on in the bedrooms and hotel rooms I delivered them to . . . until I had to do an emergency extraction. After that, and only after that, I couldn't get them to shut up about the sick crap that was going on with the rich and famous.

BTW, I kept records while I was gypsy cabbing call girls. I have a little black book. Names. Addresses. Yahtzee preferences. In many cases, how much paid. I am thinking about creating a website called "Is Your Name In The Book of Vice?" For a $50 donation to my Disabled Veteran Fund at http://jamesjarvis.net , I could tell a guy/girl if his/her name is in my book. Are there any legal eagles out there who could tell me about the legal issues with this idea?

Yikes. Just goes to show: When the principal warns you about your "permanent record", he's talking about folks like Jarvis.

Keep keepin'em honest...

p.s. Maybe Heidi Fleiss will respond to this post? Bueller? Bueller?

I met Heidi a couple of times.

Seriously Nalts does your Revver Payout at least cover your drive thru fastfood habit on the way to work?
