Re: Gallant and Goofus

Goofus sends out mass emails claiming to be a deposed president or poor orphan who needs a few thousand dollars to pay taxes and storage fees on a trunk full of cash.

Gallant uses a stylesheet so his emails look nice.

Goofus disposes of the fuel elements of RTGs in the woods, where people can find them and use them to keep warm.

Gallant keeps his RTG fuel elements in their original sheilding and even has a cask ready for long term storage.
