| O-T Lounge|| re: Is Selling Mary Kay a Pyramid Scheme? - parrotdr on 2/22/14 at 7:11 pm|
A true pyramid scheme involves only receiving money from those below you. Eventually with the exponential growth requirement of each person at the bottom needing to recruit to make money and bounce it upward, the pyramid topples and those in the bottom portion lose their investment.

Photoshop NO-bie here. Anyone have one or seen one? Google searches turn up nada. Usually get the comic book Hawkeye with an arrow or knife through his chest!
It's for a Hawkeye friend of mine.
Similar to this perhaps?

12. "Find the River"
John Paul Jones actually did some string arrangements on this album. ...

The groundskeeper that paints it says the eye started in the early 90's. Dude needs to get his facts straight. Not surprising, though, as he majored in "turf management" at Tennessee.
