RDixon: Even with popcorn lung, I think 2 chicks at the same time would be doable.

May end up broke but would always have the memory.

By the time you are old enough to afford it, it just seems like too much work.

did anyone mention that you really don't need to use those pre-packaged microwave things for quick popcorn? I mean you can just use an old trash bag, some discarded motor oil and fermented rabbit poop.

errr...i mean a brown paper bag, some olive oil, and popcorn kernels.

The metallic elements are disposable but reusable for a while ... I've made about 10 batches and am still on the first one.

I have never used one, and they are unnecessary. Just a brown paper bag, some popcorn, some olive oil, hit the microwave button, comes out just fine.

I usually just load up the office microwave with some popcorn, EVO and set it for NUKE. I then leave the office for lunch. When I come back, I complain about the popcorn and smoke smell. "I can't work like this! I have to go home."

But I don't go home.

ZAZ: Better story: http://www.kansas.com/2012/10/15/2533401/missouri-couple-bankrupt-eig h t.html.

Their lawyers took 35%. They may have had to share some of the rest with other workers. Apparently they were conned into spending $4 million to build a $400,000 house. That's government contractor grade overrun there.

Fill in the blanks: "A ________ and his _________ are soon parted."

No different than those lottery winners you read about who wind up broke a few years after hitting it big. Unless you have experience handling that sort of money, or you have someone trustworthy advising you, then the old proverb invariably applies.
