The Importance Of Being Earnest…

...in researching the name of the company you might want to set up.

Here's an example. Today, I was looking for news on a company listed on the local stock exchange called Supermax. It makes rubber gloves for the medical industry. Along the way, I discovered that it's also the nickname given to super-secure prisons in the United States.

I began this post thinking that it was a negative implication for the glove manufacturer, but on second thoughts whether it was an unintentional mistake or otherwise, super-secure rubber gloves don't sound too bad after all... :p

I don’t know whether you still remember me. I’m the last minute guest at your wedding. 🙂 Anyway, just wanted to let you know that the company, Supermax belongs to my friend’s uncle. Hahaha!
