I went to a blind prostitute.
She said: "I've never felt one that big!"
I replied: "You're pulling my leg".

People assume, because I'm a child of the 1980s, that I go around carrying a great big blaring boom box on my shoulder. Truth is, I hate that stereotype.

Never trust atoms they make up everything.

Especially atoms of the element Trumpium.

The rotation of the earth really makes my day.

No matter how kind you are, German children are kinder.

Russian dolls are always so full of themselves.

Never trust atoms they make up everything.

I broke up with my tennis playing girlfriend: Love means nothing to her.

The obvious solution: push up retirement age. You can't have people retiring en masse at sixty and then sit around twiddling their thumbs until Jesus comes to fetch them twenty or thirty years later. I for one have no intention to retire until such time as they start hammering the nails into the coffin. Considering who is probably going to be in charge of our retirement funds by then, I'll probably not ave a choice anyway. :-)

Mhmmm. I'm entering middle age and am starting to save aggressively independent of a pretty aggressive retirement fund because I'd like my retirement to come EARLY if at all possible. That way I'd have some time to maybe do something else to make even more cash. The way things are going I have this feint suspicion also that all retirement funds will be socialised at some point anyway, and I can't really count on it as anything other than a "last ditch" effort. This is also why I'm doing offshore investment. Only way to hedge against crazy.

Me, I'm too poor to save at all. I'm only semi-employed, and thus in semi-retirement anyway. At my advanced age I am now studying again, but seeing as it is art I'm studying, I don't count on that as ever generating any income. So I'll have to keep on doing odd jobs until I croak. I'm not sure I mind all that much.

Denmark (or some company in denmark proxying? Or just some clever marketing? it's not really clear to me who is doing this exactly ...) is seemingly now asking it's grandmothers to please "help" their children to make grandchildren so they can keep their welfare system going.

Ah, them silly boomers outnumbering their children.

First world problems... :-)
