    Referee,
    You think Stan has it out for me? I have generally found our agreements and disagreements to be cordial. But if he would like to declare himself to be my nemesis, then he should do so. But don’t you do it for him.

    Maybe Webby aka MC can confirm with all his connections.  I am sure it would be of interest to the SS community either way.

    Scotty, be forewarned, you don’t want Stan as your nemesis.  He is cruel beyond your imagination.  I got his goat once and he proceeded to torture me by getting me drunk on his favorite grappa, showed me pics of his BOAS in her VS outfit and then tied my hands all the while dangling Carnell’s huge thong in front of my face.  Makes Guantanamo look like kiddy camp.  Stay on his good side!!!!!!

    I appreciate that.
    I did call you Scotty earlier, but just in jest, as you were responding to an old.post. I realized later that the post you responded to irritated you. I figured you had seen it long ago.
    The idea of drinking Jack from a barrel is appealing (but not the whole barrel), and the only place I know of that it would be possible is Lynchburg. Do you know of another place?

    Stan,
    I can have as much fun as anyone. Although, only my daughter and her friends call be that.
    The bad news about the barrel is that we have to buy one (not cheap). I will do that for us when I beat the “no name” guy. But he seems to be hiding now.
    Now, I hope you and me do not have a problem, as the other suggested.
    Respectfully,

    No problem here. I will not make a lame “Scotty” joke again.
    Where do you get the barrels? One would fit nicely in my barn, that should be close to a lifetime supply. I would insist that the last several gallons be saved for my wake.

    A barrel will run between $8500 and $10000. I will have it bottled and corked. Are you up for that?
    And I wish knew where no name was so I could take his money to help pay for it.

    What an insane and surreal picture; “Dr.” Scott, that badly aging, prematurely old man, drunk of Jack Daniel’s with his self-acclaimed powers of his “wit”; cussing & cursing “idiot”, and “coward” into the empty, ethereal space of the internet; a self-acclaimed draggon slayer of a ghost with no name. … the reality is, he’s a mere footnote in the heroic battles of “Six Sigma” :-)))).

    Virtual – you sound suspiciously similar to Hiatus. Hiatus appeared here a couple of days ago to insult a number of us, me included. He, much like you, was impressed by his ability to find infrequently used (and mostly superfluous) words with which to construct those insults – a Thersaurus near at hand no doubt.
    I propose you, again like he, disappear.

    Virtual – there’s some merit to what you just said.
    I did very well for a few years from the SS training industry. However, its day has come and gone. I moved on to another industry a while back – tangential to SS but with a much better business strategy (althought its not too difficult to have a better business strategy than to be a SS training firm).
    So, in my opinion, while the training company model is essentially dead, SS is alive and very well. So its fun to mess around on this site a bit and occasionally help someone and occasionally be helped.

    Brandon, I’ll scratch you from the list. There still seem to be some people with common sense around here who have the insane urge to stylize themselves (on an anonymous, public forum!) into a marble statue that has to defend its glorious, outdated legacy … Sorry, but “Dr.” Scott with his over inflated title (the guy has some knowledge, but nothing that can be taken as a serious PhD), his penchant for “Jack Daniels”, his obsession with fetching “$3K” a day and his silly bragging about speaker’s fees … this and his promiscuous usage of the term “idiot” simply disqualify him as someone to be taken seriously … and then this infantile idea of a “challenge”.

    Six Sigma is not dead?
    It’s still alive and strong, its life extended with its merge with Lean, TOC, ISO, TRIZ, etc… Six Sigma is growing up and so looks different than what it was in its infancy. It’s still only a teenage and has more growing to do.
    While you have made a contribution in the past with your efforts, are you willing to open your mind to new ideas, grow up some yourself, and evolve your ideas to embrace the very positive direction Six Sigma has taken? Will you be making contributions to help Six Sigma mature into adulthood?
    Six Sigma may be dead in your heart but not mine. Six Sigma is not just a set of tools and methods, it’s a mindset, a belief system, a data driven and customer focused management approach.
    Brandon, don’t stop dreaming, we need good leaders like you in the future.

    Vic – thank you for the kind words; aren’t many on here. Please reread my post – I said the SS training company model is dead, or nearly so. I very much believe SS is alive and well and has a great future. And, as you mention, will forever have a place alongside numerous other skill sets. I have confidence in their effectiveness as well and am still playing a role in moving this all forward – I hope.
    While the majority of the Fortune 5000 have embraced SS in some fashion, there are hundreds of thousands of mid and small sized firms that have not been reached as yet. In total this market likely exceeds all that SS has touched to date. However it won’t be touched by the historic training firm model, in my opinion. We have to seek alternate delivery mechanisms. That’s a part of where I’m trying to go.

    I myself switched to this pseudonym several years ago when I saw someone else had and was posting with the same given name as me- been Patch ever since and have not noticed anyone else using it, so it stuck.  I think there is even a thread between myself and Mike discussing the merits or risks of my choice.

    Stan,
    A barrel makes around 240 .750 bottles.
    Each bottle is labeled “single barrel”.
    A gold label is placed in the neck of each bottle with whatever you wish it to say (e.g., your name, a message like “a gift from….”, etc.)
    The bottles come in cases of six each.
    The barrel is varnished with your messaged purchase plate on it for you to present anywhere you wish.
    You get framed collage signifying your purchase of the barrel with its number, your name, etc.
    And you have a wooden plaque placed on the wall in the Lynchburg JD distillery single barrel room (one of the last rooms viewed during the tour there).
    The cost is around $40 a bottle (and only by how many bottles come from the barrel due to evaporation). The price depends on where you are from, fed and state taxes, etc.
    They prefer you choose the barrel yourself (at the distillery) via tastings of several different barrels. They guide you through the tasting with a master taster.
    Bottom line is cost is somewhere between $9000 and $10000 (again depending on taxes).
    Regards,
    Dr. Scott

    I like the choose your own barrel option.This is going to take a little justifying to the boss, but what do you
    think about a barrel tasting/choosing party in April? I’m going to
    Nashville for pleasure anyway and it gives me time to work the
    homefront, choose just the right location in the living room (I think
    next to the 62″ plasma), clear out space in the wine cellaretc.We can invite Darth and Mike to the barrel choosing and get a taxi
    back to Nashville.What do you think?

    I will meet everyone in Nashville. We will take my van to Lynchburg, do our tasting, and split the barrel bottles (it takes 6-8 weeks for the bottles to be prepared).
    But then we have to come up with a way as to who gets the empty varnished barrel, and what label goes on the est. 240 bottles.

    don’t want it, just want to know if you are in for the selection process.
    I’ll also do this with some good tequila if you have a suggestion and a
    legal method to do such a thing. I have the storage capability for the
    whole thing in a climate and temperature controlled environment if
    needed.

    Stan, you know that unless it has DJ on the label, I don’t drink hard spirits.  Would be interesting to pursue the idea for tequila.  If I remember correctly, you even have a shower in your torture chamber aka wine celler.  Came in handy cleaning off the vomit from your grappa/tequila job interview.  Memorable couple of days on many fronts.  You are free to consume my 1/4.

    Dry?
    Participant

    Dry refers to the selling of alcohol, not the consumption. All through the south, the “dry” counties have what are refered to as brown bagging. Drinking is prevalent. Employees of Jack have been given a pint as part of their pay for years.

    No, don’t misunderstand me. It is still dry in Lynchburg. But when you are “tasting” to purchase a barrel leagally (i.e., out of the county and shipped to you), then you are like any other purchaser such as a liquor store. You are not charged for the tasting, therefore the law isn’t broken.
    Make sense?

    Maybe in lieu of Dr. Reigle’s untimely passing away, this thread can be laid to rest with a heartfelt apology to Dr. Scott from my end. Dr. Scott has a short fuse, and it is tempting to temper with some fire around him. But at the end of the day, we’re all human, all too human. I am not sure if this somewhat late apology will bring the whirlwind of this thread (Why?) to a somewhat belated end, or at least stir it into a somewhat different direction. Again, my apologies to Dr. Scott!

    Participant

    Virtual Insanity,
    I apologize if I have somehow insulted you in the manner you have me. It was not my intention. Nor, is it my intention to stylize myself as a “marble statue”. As far as the title “Dr.” goes, I do have a PhD in Business Administration from a top 25 university. A PhD I am proud of, and have used to make contributions in a number of venues.
    I don’t charge $3K a day. I am however often contracted by firms that charge the client that or more for my services. I only get my contracted share of that. I have been paid that for single day speaking engagements however, but I am not bragging about it in any way. That is just the way it is.
    And you are correct, I should not use terms like idiot or fool here. I am sorry to say that I sometimes allow my emotions to get the better of me at times when I am attacked for no reason. Still, that is no excuse.
    As far as the Jack Daniels goes, I do like it. But if you read all of the posts, I was only answering questions asked of me. Furthermore, I even suggested to one person that we take that discussion offline, and apologized to another for breaking my own rule. Discussions like that do not belong here in the forum, I unfortunately was only having a bit of fun. And I apologize yet again for allowing myself to do so.
    And finally, you don’t have to take me seriously, unless you have a need I can help you with. However, the challenge was real. Sort of like when someone says you can’t swim and that they can beat you swimming any day. Again, probably not the most professional response I could have made, but I made it. It was a challenge I think can be justified to make to a degree. Unfortunately, the person attacking me without cause still has not responded, and has not responded for his/her insults.
    At any rate, I apologize again if I have somehow rubbed you wrong. I prefer to help and receive help here, not make enemies.
    Sincerely,
    Dr. Scott

    Reason – nice thing for you to do. I agree this string should come to a close.
    Correction – it’s Mr. Stewart, his first name is Reigle.

    Take this as a lesson. You should not have any fun if it is professional.

    Another correction. He is not a Dr. He is a ME and a good old boy trying to be a cowboy.
