Lots of Room at the Mining Show


I remember in University, a friend and I got into this show. We were doing our Masters in rock mechanics and mining, and were full of the enthusiastic juice. All we wanted to do was find a hot stock tip, so we asked the first person we saw. He gravely warned us that this place was a hotbed of 'pump and dump' schemes, so we should be careful. He then gave us a hot tip.

Of course, we bought a few hundred dollars of the stuff, and it promptly went down the toilet!
