[QUOTE=Jungle Shift Jet;4504158]That's sweet, I got one too about my dad.
Some friends in college told me the tale of an older brother who won a high paying bet at Milford jai-Alai (about a grand, in the 70s) then turned around and dropped it on a device sold in High Times , mother Jones and all the hippy counterculture commie rags called the ISO-2 which was a contraption with ventilated trays which iirc had a heating element within that alleged to Transform ordinary weed into something more potent by concentrating the THC or somesuch. Apparently this was an elaborate scam that did not w.a.a.
Fast forward about 10-12 yrs - my dad was a machinist/tool + die maker who ran his own business and these guys come into his shop with the plans for what was depicted as a "herbal warmer" and could he make a die set that could stamp the ventilated trays?
My dad smelled a rat of sorts an he showed me their blueprints. I immediately sussed that it was the ISO-2 of yore in mufti. I explained to my dad that the herb to be warmed was not chervil or cilantro and we had a good laugh. For certain reasons he was hesitant to take on the job but I told him to go ahead and do it - he took a $3k deposit for the job and the dudes disappeared (the cheque cleared but a 2nd one for $1k bounced)[/QUOTE]
Kinda hard to hide this in your closet...:P
