Turns since TBfGK: 2
LordHamster: Do you?
LordHamster: Something like that.
LordHamster: So are you clueing them in?
CharlsNChrg: Not so far, I haven't.
LordHamster: Why not?
CharlsNChrg: There's an interesting principle at work, here.
CharlsNChrg: If I tell them what happened, freely, then they won't believe it.
CharlsNChrg: But if I charge them what the information is worth, then they'll buy it.
LordHamster: In both senses.
CharlsNChrg: Indeed. :)
LordHamster: Okay, so you're selling them the intelligence.
CharlsNChrg: Actually, I kind of like being the only one who does know what happened there.
CharlsNChrg: So what I am doing is offering the information at about twice what anyone is willing to pay for it.
LordHamster: Gotta make back your losses somehow.
LordHamster: But you're telling me this for free.
CharlsNChrg: Maybe I don't want you to believe it. :)
