Government can give you nothing but what it takes from somebody else. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you've got, including your freedom.-Ezra Taft Benson
You must accept 1 of 2 basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe or we are not alone. Either way, the implications are staggering!-Wernher von Braun
I loved Oblivion - not quite so fond of Skyrim, the story didn't "gell" for me and I didn't get such a sense of freedom. But ... Skyrim graphics, and mechanics with Oblivion story? Now, where did I leave my Ebony Blade, the Gray Cowl of Nocturnal, and Azura's Star ... ?
I don't mind ironing, which is lucky as after my wife had an accident and ended up having her right wrist fused around 10 years ago I have to do all of it around here.
Mate of mine finds it really relaxing. He works away during the week, and when home likes to spend Saturday morning doing some ironing and watching sport. If there is no ironing to do he cannot fully relax that weekend.
Some men are born mediocre, some men achieve mediocrity, and some men have mediocrity thrust upon them.
m a man of few needs, but ever since I started working, I outsourced housekeeping and laundry.
General housework I don't mind, use it as a break to think away from the keyboard with one very conscious exception: ironing.
Since I started working for myself anything that needed ironing was outed to the Sallies (including a few shirts still in the wrappers).
Here in the states we have an absolute miracle. It's called "Permanent Press".
And damn, it goes through the wash and dry and is ready to wear! Even when the press finally starts to wear out, compared to sending the clothes out for ironing you've saved enough for a big new monitor, extra DRAM, even enough to buy a few more shirts.
I intended the Soapbox - forgot to change screens.
If anyone can move it to where it belongs it would be nice.
AND, come to think of it - would that not be a decent capability for a user for their own posts (or is it already there and I don't know about it).
And all those taxes don't even give you free healthcare or education
I guess those are the perks of having a president who cares more about his ego than his people.
At least he runs the country like his businesses, into the ground with no one on his mind but himself.
So anyway, this is kind of Soapbox material so I'll leave it at that.
