I just received an invitation to attend an exciting conference that will show me how to start my own cash-based business setting up vending machines. I know the potential is huge, because there was a photo of someone who's already made a lot of money, and he had stacks of cash in the photo to prove it. I know they're serious, because the invitation included a sample business card with my name and address on it (so I can correct any errors before they print more).
The problem is, I was planning on returning to a career as a fine artist (using mixed media to effectuate a conceptual persona, but also producing some interesting films along the way).
Now I don't know what to do. Please advise.

I just got an e-mail from some guy in the government of Togo who needs help in cashing a cheque for 10 million dollars, or something like that. Promised me 10% if I would help him out. Problem is, I don't have time for that project right now. But I could forward the e-mail to you. That would provide some seed money for your next art flick.
Okay, then, I will forward it on to you. Just one thing, though, he wanted $5,000 to get some papers notarized and I already sent that to him before I found out I couldn't proceed with the project. So if you wouldn't mind, could you pay me back for that? He told me that's all he would need to get the wheels in motion.
That's very artistic. Back in the last century the Canadian government demonetized the one-dollar bill and replaced it by a one-dollar coin. Near the cutover date you could buy a sheet (uncut) of 40 one-dollar bills as a souvenir. (For $50.) I had the idea of buying one of those sheets, then pulling out a pair of scissors at the supermarket checkout and cutting off the right number of bills, but I never had the nerve of the true performance artist.
Yes. (as I understand it) You need to give your bank details so that (s)he can come over to marry you, as they have been sitting there in an internet cafe thinking about you for a long time. It is then possible to get the blue pill for unforgettable happiness (from the Matrix? I am unsure) and they will tell you how to make millions.
