Do you know what everybody loves? Absolutely everybody? Or at least that's what the show business is trying to prove for so many years. I'm going to let you in on a little secret:
everybody loves a good comeback story.
You know how people were waiting for Elvis to sing again (and some of them still are, I'm afraid)? How, despite the fact that she was no genius to begin with, everybody was rooting for Britney to clean up and look hot again (let's be honest, who cares about her songs)? How we are still waiting for a good Nicholas Cage movie (and aliens to take over the Earth, not sure which will come first)? I'm telling you, people love rooting for the underdog, for those who failed the first time around, for people who used to have it good so maybe they'll have it good again. This is such a story, mis amigos.
When we were all young and beautiful there used to be a website called goldnuggetinvest.com, aka GNI. They managed to establish themselves as one of the most successful services of the time. And then... Many things went wrong at the same time and it all fell down (Britney and KFed, anyone?). Some put blame on the weakness of the cooperating bank or the collapse of Strict Pay payment system, others say that the main issue was the abuse of the referral system. There are also voices that the program was nothing more than a fraud and the owners simply wanted to make as much money as possible and run, or rather, close down.
The rest is up to you, amigos. Think about the comeback stories and decide for yourselves. We'll probably never know the whole truth unless some of you know Scully and Mulder personally - if so, let us know. What's important, however, is that the creators of NewGNI don't deny their past and that they are honest about what happened. Kudos for that; they were not the first, nor will they be the last to experience failure. Stuff happens, wise people move on. And move on they did.
NewGNI – I won't insult your intelligence by explaining the name – deals with sports arbitraging, namely surebets. Since, as I have admitted it already at least once, I know nothing (literally NOTHING) about sports, I tend to feel uneasy even when I see a picture of a green field and a ball, or half-naked men catching/throwing something that resembles a ball, or basically any people that sweat profusely. My weirdness should not shock you by now, so get over it. I'm simply explaining why I've encountered some, ekhm, problems when browsing through newgni.net.
The images found there managed to deeply disturb me. Naked sweating men aside, the website is rather... What's the phrase... Visually challenged. I mean we've all seen worse, but this one is pretty ugly. I'm sorry, I mean "beautiful in its own way," or some other politically correct term (I mean, what is up with the weird little bunny looking at me from the upper right corner of the page? I'm afraid. Do I see dead rabbits?). However, I like the handy toolbar that you can find at the bottom of the page: a small, but a useful thing that shows their care for the reader. What's actually more important, the usability level is awesome (thank you Shadow Scripts, I guess). Everything is simple, self-explanatory and intuitive, which are the three most crucial qualities a website can have.
What's more, I enjoyed reading all the texts in all the sections and I must say, they are even funny sometimes. The extremely well-prepared FAQ section is the winner in that particular category. In need of a proof? Here you are: the answer to the almost philosophical question "who are you" goes as follows,
"[w]e are a group of people, like "you and me" [...]". "We are the world, we are the people,"
anyone? Here's a better one:
"GNi is our acronym of Genius [...]: [...] something or someone embodying exceptional intellectual ability, creativity, or originality, typically to a degree that is associated with the achievement of unprecedented insight".
Phew! Glad they cleared up that one! And the absolute winner is the answer to the question whether surebets are risk free,
"[f]irst of all, nothing in life is risk free: [n]uclear war can start tomorrow and the most certain of certainties will be stopped from happening"
