It's gotten so bad even our dominant genes are turning recessive. Our children will look nothing like us.

This is, in general, an unfair way to assess financial status. My family's pretty much broke, but my mom needs internet for her job. Therefore, we require an internet connection despite unstable finances.

One Laptop Per Child anyone?

I did an entire report on the OLPC project last year... >_>

When we're low on money in the Uk, we simply sacrifice our first-born children to the god Imhotep.

The good news is that with Obama at the helm playing the master of the house this might actually turn out to be a GREAT depression rather than a mediocre one like how it would have been under Bush Jr.

Hell, we might even get to have a GRAND depression. Imagine the parties! Letting off fireworks on the White House lawn. Water balloon fights in congress. Bindle toting hobos on every second parade float. It'll be a blast.

If you are employed, and do not lose your job, a recession can only benefit you, because stuff costs less.

That's a big "if" though, but if it applies to you, yay recession!

Jean is shorter than Brutus but taller than Imhotep. Imhotep is taller than Jean, but shorter than Lord Scotland. Lord Scotland is twice the height of Jean and Brutus combined but only one-tenth of the height of Millsy. Millsy is at a constant height of x − y. If Jean stands exactly one nautical mile away from Lord Scotland, how tall is Imhotep?

Well, yes, everyone should have exactly one lap when in a sitting position. This could be the name of a campaign to fight morbid obesity.

Or it could be a goal for every child to run a lap around... the U.S., I guess. Or for participants to run a lap on behalf of every child, which means they'll be dead long before they can finish.

Or a dog could lap every child's face.

Imhotep is invisible.

And the party was canceled.

I'm not sure how this is related to the topic but oh this thread is going to get off topic wheather I like it or not (they always do). Anyway I think that this is pretty cool.
