    Stationed at Cape Horn for a Year

    You've just been awarded the 2005 maintenance contract for the Ushuaia Lighthouse in the Bay of Cape Horn. Lucky you!

    Not only that, but your employer has allocated $600 to bourbon provisioning. No more than 18 bottles may be provisioned, however.

    The company guidelines are strict. Your employer will provide you with one bottle of bourbon for each month of duty, providing none of the 12 costs more than $20 U.S. ($240 allocation).

    In addition, your contract provides for one pricier bourbon per season, providing none of the 4 costs more that $40 U.S. ($160 allocation).

    Finally, you are permitted 1 or 2 additional bottles for special occasions, provided the additional bottle or bottles total no more than $200 U.S.

    P.S. Your bourbon will travel via company jet. Since the unscrupulous TSA inspectors won't get anywhere near your bourbon, HazMat is permitted and all of your bottles will arrive in Patagonia!
