You know gambling is a disease when people will bet their money at a place named "Ladbrokes."

You know when gambling is a national disease when football teams have bookies web addresses splayed across the front of their uniforms

/can't find any current examples. I guess the big money beat out the bookies for advertising on uniforms

It's not a store. It's a bookie's.

Exactly, if I had millions of dollars and wanted something to do, why not go for something simple like this?

She could have left the interview at any time.

I doubt she's worth 30 million dollars as the article states.  I'd like to see some justification for that claim.

Indeed. Were I to ver become independently wealthy, I had one thing I would do. In Vancouver there are these little ferry boats that fit 8 or so people. You hop on, pay the captain (from what I saw college students trying to have a little income) a toonie and you take a 10 minute ride to get across the bay. I'd captain one of those boats all day.

I love those boats. When I used to live in the West End, one of my favourite activities was walking down to the boat pier and catching a ride to Granville Island to shop at the market.

Because there's someone who actually needs the money and a job?

So now you have to prove there's nobody who needs the job more than you do before you can accept it?

Go fark yourself.  If somebody wants to do a job instead of sit around on their arse all day, they have the right to apply for it like everyone else.

The proper term, when the rich are strange, is "eccentric"

Do you often ridicule Asberger's affected people? I bet you laugh at people on crutches too for walking funny.

FTFA:"Last year, Susan revealed she was wrongly diagnosed with brain damage as a child, but was "relieved" to discover she was actually suffering from Asperger syndrome."
 
2014-01-27 06:46:33 PM  
I agree. If this is what she wants to do, then it makes a lot more sense than living in a well-furnished prison by yourself.

I don't know.  From Orwell's description of his experience working in a bookshop, I think I'd find it too depressing.  Knowing that all kinds of great literature is sitting there gathering  dust while absolute cack flies off the bookshelves....But don't let me deter you.

That ....would be an awesome job for me.

/ being newly rich, I could brush up on Marvel titles (something I don't have the time & money for right now)
// more familiar with Dark Horse, Image, and DC...

I'd probably do something similar - or open a loss leading video game store so I can play video games all day with my buddies and make fun of teenagers that come in to buy Madden.
 
2014-01-27 09:14:39 PM  
She's uglier than a pile of pitted marble, but her voice is easily as good as Liz Frasier in my opinion. I have her Christmas cd, and actually really like it (as much as I hate xmas in general).

That's a fun question, if you were independently wealthy, what minimum wage job would you take?

I was a day-camp counselor one summer, that was kind of fun. Play with a bunch of kids all day and not actually have to teach them anything. Either that, or a bartender at a really mellow bar, though that would only be minimum wage if you turn down the tips. And I could hire a personal barback with my piles of money.
 
2014-01-27 10:25:17 PM  
Yeah, I'm with her on this one.  She's all Aspergery, knows she isn't up to the London richie-rich lifestyle, and wants something to do when she isn't touring.

/I know if I won the lottery I would open up a old-school neighborhood bar or something, just to keep busy.
