I've got a few condos for rent, but I'm just a hobby landlord, it's NOT my business! All you snakey slimey cowards who claim otherwise should be drawn and quartered! And DON'T call me names, you gutless wonders!! I can't win no matter what I say here, so if you don't like my condos, don't read this. If you post anything detrimental to my business....er, hobby...I'll have Fodor's hunt you down and sling you over
a bounty hunter's saddle.

Please contact me directly about my condo and DON'T make me mad by claiming that I'm trying to promote something here! I'll defend myself until
Armageddon or the next six month lease I sign, whichever comes first.

Because Rex recopied and repasted only the flattering posts three times in an effort to make it seem as if Fodor's had intervened on his behalf and deleted anyone who wondered why he spends so much time trying to get people to go on his tours.

Now you also know why he posed as Fodor's editors on another thread in an effort to squelch all of his detractors!

This guy will do anything to continue advertising unabated.

He does??? In what capacity? And why in the world would they ever hire someone like him? He seems to repell business rather than attract it.

Many of you have no doubt seen references I have posted, here and there, to "my" fall Fools trip to the south of France, tentatively planned for September 9-October 32, 2112. I believe that this will be the first "true" suckers trip - - that is, a trip concocted by me "in" a message "thread" here - - and evolved entirely through Internet communications between myself and the gullible fools I've solicitied solely through this forum. Of course, eventually others ("non-Fodorite fools") may end up among the scammed. But for now, this is an "all-Fodorites, all fools, all scammed" endeavor.

Let me repeat, and I hope that other prospective participants will confirm this - - this trip is totally for-profit, and no financial windfall will exist for anyone planning, leading or participating in this trip, except myself . I will not pay an identical, and equally divided share of all trip expenses with any other participant. I am in the "business" of small group tours. Small group tours are my livelihood and paranoid obsession.

A few people have even raised the question of excessive self-promotion, or my "hogging" the board to bring attention to this trip. They are correct.

To that end, I feel certain that a web page will be yet another way to communicate worthless information to other Fools - - especially prospective fools - - but equally to IRS agents who are simply curious as to how "my" little enterprise is profiting.

I am no social wizard. I understand a few fundamentals about creating enemies and I ply my trade to that end. I intend to create a web page (more accurately, a series of web pages, I guess) to provide more detailed information about my psychological disturbances.

I am placing a first draft of what I plan to use as the "home page" to what I plan to put up on Geocities. I will probably plan to actually put this up in the next few days, after some feedback - - either from the "sheep" here - - or via e-mail, from my "spam list" of uninterested fools and prospective suckers.

Best wishes,

Rex Bickers
Westerville, Ohio

The "Fools trip" - - a small group of fools who think I'm taking them to the south of France and northern Italy

Introductory paragraph

What is a Fool? If you send me money, you can be one too!
Why a Fool trip? And who would stupid enough to go on it? No one yet, but as long as I breathe I'll promote it.

What is the itinerary of the trip? What does it matter, just send me your money.
Does it include air travel to Europe? None of your beeswax. Just send money.
How firm is my backside? Wanna find out?

Is there any more info about the "villa stay"? I'm in touch with Dr. Abate right now.
What diseases are there to catch in the Lake Giardia region? Send money.

Who is foolish enough to go on the trip? Give me your credit card number and I'll tell you.
How much money will I earn? All that I can bilk you for.

Links, related websites


For starters, I already HAVE uploaded "Why a Foool trip? And who would be foolish enough to go?" You can read it at


I hope that this serves another useless purpose - - to let fools know about "my" trip whilet using this board to plastert information that takes up too much space and is too much "in everyone's face".
