It worked out well, as they Mars six trillion dollar, and kept one for themselves. But- - -? More
Seven friends decided that they all have had enough of the daily commute. During their poker game, they had to do some brain storming, how to get out of the nine to five work days. They were all doing well, but they were all sick of the daily commute. We have to find out a way to get enough money together for the seven of us. The most lucrative would be to take away what people take for granted. Like water, electricity, and the phone service. The question is only, how in all hell can it be done? Another of the seven said, one of us is a doctor in astrophysics, then two of us are lawyers, two have learned what there is to know about blowing things apart, and the last two have worked with mining of or. If we start with a simple kidnapping, to get enough money while we plan the big one, how would that work. As there wasn't any objections, and only Don Smith wanted to know what the big one could be. The Tom Hopkins, the doctor, explained. We blackmail the local bank-manager, by kidnapping his entire family, that will give us the capital we need. Over the last years, eighty percent of all electrical companies have closed down. And I read that another ten percent is going the same way. We have one year to get ourselves work on the moons electrical power units. Ninety percent of all electricity is now coming from the moon. It took the seven almost the entire year for them all to get a job on the moon. As soon as they were there, the two that knew about explosives, covered the entire moon station with high explosives, and then they told the Earth that if they didn't get six trillion dollar sent up to the moon, the entire electrical power plant will be obliterated. It worked, and a space ship with all the money arrived to the moon. Our seven friends went behind the sun, and landed on Mars. They were welcomed as heroes, and gave the Mars government six trillion dollar, and kept one trillion to be divided between the seven. It worked out well to start with, but then two of us died in accidents that shouldn't have happened. The final solution was smething none of the seven had even thought about.
