Nice one.  This is an old article that may shed some light on the mysterious issue of a massively successful business that for some odd reason just can't make a "profit."

Hmmm... I'm smelling a "Figures Lie and Liars Figure" analogy here... they figure it will EVENTUALLY be profitable and advance him 250K? What an insult! What big mystical thing is going to happen NOW after so many years for that movie?

It is now believed, that after having lived in one compound with 3 wives and never leaving the house for 5 years, Bin Laden called the U.S. Navy Seals himself.

2012  ROFLMAO

Of course it won't be profitable until Q4 of 2024.  But for now the execs will simply choose to take unthinkable amounts of money as "compensation" while 2012 remains in the red.  This reminds me of something but I can't remember what it... wait a second - that's it!  Facebook Wink
