What a sad testament to our times! Too many folks on the ignorant side of the force.

Well, JohnDG, I am a leetle shy about investing right now...

My most recent investment went a leetle sour; invested ALL my money in a rock solid idea (from my brother-in-law) for the repair of 8-Track tape players. Did not pan out, I lost everything.

Who woulda thunk that 8-Track is dead? Bummer!

Just one more thing, Dvader1000, please. How long did it take you to discover this profound theory? While relatively true, we still earn a bit more than the swarming techno-freaks.

I've always known it to be true, it's just that I only recently came across this cool presentation. After all, in my country, the Prime Minister's wife, who resigned from her post as the CEO of the national sovereign wealth fund after her bad investments lost a total of more than US$32,000,000,000/-, was recently reappointed to the post by the Finance Minister because "she's the best person for the job." Presumably he meant best at losing money, because every company that employed her as its CEO, all government-owned of course, ended up losing huge sums of money. Some were even liquidated and privatized.

Personally, I 'd send the entire cabinet to China. Whoever heard of a Prime Minister who earns US$2,300,000/- per year and yet claims that his government has no control over the cost of public housing when it is the government itself that provides the public housing????!!!! And who needs to give his father, the former PM, a cabinet post to serve as the national fortune teller at that!!!!

Actually, I'm Force mindclouding them to do the stupidest things possible so that people will be sick of them and vote them out. That way, I can forment unrest and claim the territory for the Empire without having to get my hands dirty.

That seems overly elaborate for someone that can choke them from miles away.

By the way, shouldn't you be back on Coruscant?

well, it worked for George W. Bush but it is a long slow process, as we are dealing with Addicts in the form of the people who vote. They get addicted to stupidity and voting stupid people in, and the it is a decade before we can generate enough common synaptic intensity to get rid of them.. then the process begins again. Please just get rid of all the bad politicians and keep the good ones. Being a force-psychic, it is easy for you to know before hand which are which.

Good politician? Isn't that an oxymoron these days? They are all out for themselves. The pigeons only come down to our level to feed at election time, then right back up into the clouds.And everyone knows what pigeons do when overhead.

I once almost had a psychic girlfriend, but we broke up before we met. (Dangit! I knew that was going to happen)

I saw this 'theorem' a few years ago...back then it was called Dilbert's Theorem (I guess from the cartoon character) only difference was that scientist was sales engineer.

Here's a scary thought

What if the guys who know it all did some work?

Seems like there are a few out there -- I am not one of them though -- I just do the work and rely on you guys for the rest.

This certainly applies to the US Government, especially Congress!

It is ridiculous to call our politicians stupid. They are not stupid at all.

They are money grabbing, self serving, super right wingers. (Even the left wing politicians are on the right of the general populace!)

Socialism is a wonderful thing until you run out of other people's money to pay for it, then you find yourself in Greece.....
