    I think darby started the guns? But that triangle rig is a modified replica. Pulling the curtain? For other glass artists who only intend to follow me for "inspiration", yeah sure you could call it that. For customers and general public? Nah theyll get something completly unique, from the product all the way to how its presented. And a gun is a common thing, that triangle is completly unique. Be inspired by his creativity or maby even a tek like " jesus seals" but dont take what he makes, add a couple balls and call it your own. C'mon man ur trippy, ask the plant medicines what you should make during your next jouney.

    I'd wager pyramids and triangles are way more common than guns, but that's just like, my opinion, man

    I disagree with your take, seems unlikely we'll resolve it, so I'm happy to agree to disagree.

    Yea, I'm really cutting into his bottom line, eclipsing his work, and generally making problems for him

    Come on now.

    Shame that all those folks inspired by Hamm's recyclers went and put him outta business, too.

    Oh, wait...

    Its not inspiration is 3d plagerism. The only business thats being hurt is your own. Theres something original inside you somewhere there has to be. Unless theres more npc's walking around then i thought.

    So he told me to come back once I have a paycheck that i can get money back from or I was married and going to file jointly.

    I would be paying 50% of profits to the governement and then getting it back at the end of the year. It makes no sence.
    I can write off everything also. So I would not have much to pay taxes on.

    I kept a income book my first year and the accountant said donít bother.
    It wasnít even worth it. But I was happy with the $12,000 in cash I made on pipes. I worked as a assistant for a glassblower and went to college back then.
