Metaphorically Speaking

"Sharp knives keep fallin on my head"


Lots of pain out there.

How 'bout:
"buying something you can't afford is dumb," or
"the wages of innumeracy are paid in the coin of pain," or
"ask the dutch about tulips."

Shielding people from the pain of dealing in tulips is dumber yet.

"Experience keeps a dear school, but fools will learn in no other"

-Benjamin Franklin

My personal favorite found while reading about all this housing madness.

The latest bailout (though they hesitate to use the term) involves a new gov't office to buy the "distressed" mortgages at an auction and then to refinance them. Never mind the fiscal friction of such an auction - a better, bigger question is *why*? Why pay the dear tuition for the fools to go to school?


btw, Scum - congrats on 1st, and your 'sharp knives' was good

Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

-Hunter S. Thompson

Dedicated to the other side of Las Vegas, namely; the sprawling, mad, incoherent underpinnings of the world's favorite destination.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
