SevenizGud: Indubitably: No shiat, Mr. Sherlock?

I am unsurprised.

Please don't criticize those who still punch the clock, friend, for you sell yourself short...

Heh.

;)

I'm not the one suggesting that other people give me their money.


Seriously?

How the fark do you think your retirement is funded, dipstick?

Me.

Shall I withdraw my stick?

Uhm, on the money I saved from when I was working? Just a guess.

But you tell me, since you evidently know more about where my retirement comes from than I do.

Most folks' retirement is funded in part by the social network created by our dollars, whether it be directly feeding your account or supplementing your healthcare, friend. Short of you being independently wealthy, of old money, or alien, you benefit from my time-clock punches...

Apparently I do know more about your retirement than you?

Wrong again, Einstein. When I worked, I put money away myself to have for later, when I wouldn't be working. I am not drawing from any pooled resources.

And I don't go to doctors.

Wanna keep going, now that you've hit bottom, or do you want to start digging?

ontariolightning: Any guesses on how many millions of suckers watched this on tv?


I tried, but my Direct TV had "Technical Difficulties" half-way into it, cut out to a black screen for several minutes, and then a "Don't call us" message ...so I switched to another channel,

Nice timing.
Anyone else have that happen to them?

I don't have to dig, friend.

'Tis just a matter of time before your lips mount the tit 'o state, mans.

Ever call 911 in your self-aggrandized bliss?

Totally self-sufficient, eh?

Pffft.

Not if we are lucky, and, as I have suggested, we abolish the "tit 'o state" paradigm completely, and let productive peope actually keep the product of their own labor and ingenuity (GASP!!), and let scumbuckets hang.

Ever call 911 in your self-aggrandized bliss?

Well, without respect to your really obvious logical fallacy of falsely presuming that I am in a self-aggrandized bliss, no I haven't.

Totally self-sufficient, eh?

Yes, friend.

Nope. Mine went fine. Which is amazing considering I have a bent dish on my roof. Working for DIRECTV has it's advantages, but sometimes techs take shortcuts when they're not being paid. Like when they're installing an employers home.

I am amazed that someone found an American willing to walk that far.

I was rooting for him, but then all the Jesus talk kinda made me wish he would just fall off the damn wire.

That's not as mean as it sounds. I mean, he had a safety harness on.

LabGrrl: Every time I go to Canada I either answer the "purpose" question with a fake purpose we agreed on before hand or tell the truth, which is too existential for border patrol ("Because it's next door", "to go shopping, not sure where", "to see if I can see my house from here") and TO INSPIRE THE WORLD is acceptable?

And since when do they stamp passports?

/"To get booze at Duty Free."


I once rented a car and went to Canada a few weeks after my car got totaled in a wreck (would have totaled me too, but I snapped the wheel at the last second. Not my fault either.)

So:

"Reason why you're going to Canada?"

"Well, I lost my car a few weeks ago, got claustrophobic stuck in my college town, and just wanted to get out for a night. And Canada is like a 30 minute drive so I figured why not"

So the border guard then starts telling me a very long story about a car accident he was in. Can't remember the details anymore, but the car rolled over the side of the road down an embankment and it was a full day before he was found. They figured he wouldn't be able to use his legs ever again, and one day at physical therapy he got put on a bike and forced himself to push through it in agonizing pain, and eventually taught himself to walk again and eventually ended up at the customs gig.

At this point, by the way, I can't see the end of the line behind me.

"So... you know, just treasure every day you're around, eh? If they found me six hours later I probably wouldn't even be here. Anyway... enjoy your stay in Canada"

"... Thanks"

I couldn't bring myself to watch the video of Karl Wallenda's fall, but I did manage to sit through this harrowing video of Nik Wallenda and his mother, Delilah Wallenda doing the same walk in memory of Karl.

Though I kinda pee my pants every time I watch it.

Bathia_Mapes: MaudlinMutantMollusk: Bathia_Mapes: Karl Wallenda was his great-grandfather. And it was horrible what happened to him.

Thanks. Couldn't remember which of the Falling Wallendas it was

/for some reason, that video haunts me... you could somehow see that he knew it was the end

E-Brake: I remember watching that on TV when it happened, horrible.

I watched it too. You could literally see the fear in his face just before he fell.


I also saw it on TV way back when...that's why I couldn't watch this walk (I didn't know he would be using a harness).

Your money was made on the back of someone, friend, and your disingenuous claim of bootstrapping makes me wish you had no shoes, suddenly.

Good luck when your stacks of stacks are only stacks of slacks, geriatricks...

Heh.

;)
