I will never have to do this

I think this woman is actually a man. Either way, I'm glad I will never have to do this. Unfortunately our female readers can't say the same.

...we do have female readers, right?

Social Security: Possibly the Biggest Ponzi Scheme Ever

Is Social Security a Ponzi Scheme? - BusinessWeek: "Ultimately our ability to make good on the “Ponzi-like” nature of Social Security depends on the continued march of technological progress—and in particular, innovation which boosts output and living standards. If we leave the younger generation a good legacy—a sound scientific and technological base, combined with an innovative and flexible economy and an educated workforce—then Social Security is not a Ponzi scheme. The economy grows, and there’s more than enough resources for everyone.

But if instead we—the current generation—invest in homes, flat-screen televisions and SUVs, then we don’t leave the next generation with the technological “seed corn” they need. If the technological progress slows, then Social Security does turn out to be Ponzi-like—with unfortunate consequences for everyone."

Most Awkward Moment Ever

What are you doing here?: man asks wife at brothel
| U.S.
| Reuters
: "A Polish man got the shock of his life when he visited a brothel and spotted his wife among the establishment's employees.

Polish tabloid Super Express said the woman had been making some extra money on the side while telling her husband she worked at a store in a nearby town.

'I was dumfounded. I thought I was dreaming,' the husband told the newspaper on Wednesday.

The couple, married for 14 years, are now divorcing, the newspaper reported."

Casual Sex: The Rest of the World's Definition of "Hanging Out"

Op-Ed Columnist - The Demise of Dating - NYTimes.com

This article reminded me of Elder Dallin H. Oak's talk on dating vs. hanging out. And then it reminded me that for most people who aren't Mormon, "hanging out" is really just a pretext for fornication. Hanging out (in a Mormon context) sounds quite benign to me once again.

Awesome shirts

This guy has made the illustrations for a lot of great shirts for Despair.com, and now he's got his own website featuring his designs. If they were cheaper, I would be sorely tempted to allocate significant funds to the purchase of his stuff.

I'm surprised this liberal newspaper let this opinion piece headline.

The book of the generation of the Young Sparrows, their travails in the wilderness, and their eventual arrival in the promised land of the Glenwood.

IN Arizona, land of the Mexicans and Navajo and various brown peoples, at the residence of our fathers, we, Matt, Tyler, Jeff, and Landon saw that it was needful for us to obtain another place of residence, for God had cursed the land that the women had become slippery, and no man could hold his own. Thus after multitudinous councils and depositions and revelations it was made known to us that the land northward of Provo, hitherto full of waifs and vagabonds, was to be given to us for an inheritance. Therefore we girt up our loins and travailed through many wanderings until at last we beheld the land of Bountiful, and Jeff was wroth for we had traveled too far northward. The countenance of Tyler fell, and all were sorely vexed. Thus the Lord smote upon the inhabitants of the land Bountiful and its coasts, and a famine waxed strong amongst them, until their beast of burden cumbered the land and the stink rose to heaven. Thusly afflicted we took our course up to Provo and pausing on the border of the land, Landon cast his eyes upon the land flowing with milk and fine honeys of wanton vestments, and desired them to wife. Behold, the daughters of the Provoites charged usward and danced before us with siren songs of great temptation, that they should please us and we should desire them to wife, for they were exceedingly fair and comely. And it came to pass that Matt was grieved, and his bowels were filled with ire and he spake thusly:
"Thou wicked daughters of Provoites, clad in mantels of wickedness and mincing as you go, why comes ye up today to tempt us, that we should desire you to wife? We rebuke you with many gnashings of teeth and declare that we come to claim your lands and if ye will not repent of your evil doings and depart with a covenant of peace, we will spill your odiferous perfumes and ointments upon the ground, as if they were blood." The womens rent their clothes in anger and rushed forth and thus by stratagem they desired to vaunt up on us the yoke of bondage.
Crying upon the Lord for sustenance and reinforcements, Matt rallied his brethren, for behold, their were fighting for their future lands and future wives and future college degrees, and thusly empowered they cast their eyes up to heaven and beheld a boy of flaxen hair falling from the sky, and a fell light was in his eyes, and a high doom was about him. Thus came Jordan to the fellowship, and he gat upon the more wicked part of the women that they died. Thus we see that the Lord maintains his chosen servants that they should at some future time preserve their seed in the land. And after that the iniquitous women had been destroyed and the righteous ones spared, we went up and possessed the land, and there was peace in the land for many years, and we wrought upon our homework, that it was graded with A's, yeah and also B+'s. And thus we prospered and begat awesome stuff and were blessed in all things even unto the present day.
