        Do you think he will have any lifestyle change now that he's only worth $50B instead of $65B? (no idea about the actual numbers for his personal wealth and don't care enough to Google it, either).

            Right, so Nancy Sinatra makes the list but Mick and I don't? Somebody get me the number for the Law Offices of Michael de Mayo. I'm tight with his brother Cinco.

              I hear Chuck Norris is resurrecting Walker, Texas Ranger. It’s going to be called Texas Rangers with walkers.

                  You know what an actuary is, don't you? Somebody who didn't have sufficient personality to be an accountant.

                    • I bought a Shark vacuum cleaner today.

                      My God, I cannot believe the filth and squalor I've been living in.

                      That damn thing must have been pulling dirt up from the crawl space. Best vacuum I've ever seen.

                        • My wife irritates me. She complains all throughout the week because she didn't get out of the house much. Then i get out early this AM to do the weekly yardwork so that I can be done in time for us to have most of the day to do something and she says she's got too much to do to go anywhere.

                          • Why is it impossible to find good Chinese takeout? There is one place by my wife’s work that’s pretty good, but that’s it. That’s not exactly something that’s difficult to make taste good.

                              I concur. Chinese restaurants get shittier every time I eat at one.
