    When I was a mere kid I once said at a family dinner that I wanted to grow up to be a robber, surprisingly enough I recieved the biggest beating in all my years of living. Leave it to my dad to crush someone's dreams.

    I dont know about where you live but down in south FL when people buy a buisness from some one they also buy the name...but in mi case its a diffrent scenario cause Coral Springs Fl stopped selling buisness licences, so if you want to open or buy anything you need to keep the name/contract/license.

    I agree with you tho, i wasnt thinking about stock and share holders.
    true, true, but there is a way to bypass it. if you go thru all the legal actions to change it's name, and advertise the change even before the name changes; the company will retain it's reputation by people remembering it as the previous company. this may not be sucha good thing at first, but one you gain a better reputation people will sooner or later forget the old name, and only recognize the new. just like how jackson and charvel split up.

    Ok I got you.

    I guess its a different case when the business in question is a retail store your talking about buying/selling/repairing guitars and other instruments right?

    I was trying to put it into the business my family owns which is car audio/alarms/t.v.s and all the other stuff you can do to cars. It's been around for almost 17 years and people know it by name and 70 percent of our customers were referred by others and are recurring customers. So if we change are name its like starting over again.

    Nooooooooooooooooes !!1111 Dude, seriously, save yourself while you still can. This is fucking uncanny; telomerase is some good shit to study I agree, and you can get into some pretty far out theoretical stuff - I did my main essay last year for first year on it. But really thats about as good as it gets - if your lectures are anything like mine which im assuming they will mostly be (molecular biology n biochem are pretty interchangable) then they will slowly but surely errode your soul. Honestly though unless you're totally devoted to it all I'd really think hard about whether its for you as I think nearly all of my coursemates wish they'd chosen something else now. I'm not trying to patronise you or anything like that by the by, just I know what a god damn kick in the nuts it was discovering how un-awesome my course actually was.

    Oh yeah I wanted to be a paleoarchaeologist as well as .. Child_of_Serenity I think it was. A paleoarchaeologist with the power of flight - think Nathan Petrelli. Not sure how the two really worked together but thats always been what I wanted. Now I want to be...a traveller for a while at least. And then who knows. But a who-knows with the power of flight..

    I'm not going to do my future research on telomerase haha! I'm just lecturing it to freshmens because the biology teacher requested it. It is interesting to know about though.

    ^Ahhh...so ambitious.

    When I was a kid I wanted to be a doctor 'cuz I wanted to save people.

    But then I got all cynical and now I wanna be a lawyer. So I can ruin people's lives.
