“The only thing certain, is that nothing is certain.” And if this is true, then it is also false.

“I’ll gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today”

A favorite saying way back when I was a kid, and fat chance of ever seeing that money Smile

I don’t think anybody every took J. Wellington Wimpy’s promise seriously, though.

Especially after he passed away from a massive coronary after a lifetime of eating greasy fatty food, as well as his drinking habit.

No surprise at all, but I must have missed that episode of Popeye. Actually, NGL, I’m kinda glad I did. Silly

That was the ep right before Olive Oyl was exposed as being a crack ho. That’s why she looked so anorexic.

Bluto/Brutus (changed his name to try eluding the cops) was her pimp.

Well, of course. SweePee was a “crack-baby”, and Olive Oyl dumped the kid in a restroom garbage bin right after birth.

It was only pure luck someone found and detoxed the kid.

We are instituting a citywide “Temporary Tax” Smile
Philly pulled this sheet more than once and I am sure other cities did as well.

Yep, most of the world is either in a recession or soon will be because of Covid and the war.

To be fair, we’re not entering a recession because of covid. We’re entering a recession because of government response to covid.

Sure, just about the entire world is entering a recession (or is in a recession) because of their response to Covid.  :FACEPALM:

It couldn't possibly be because of Covid and the war, which has affected the entire planet.  :FACEPALM:

(Talk about false statements!)

You realize this is a world recession?

Of course some countries (and regions) handled Covid better than others, but the root cause of the world recession of 2022 is Covid and the war.

There are other factors such as supply chain issues and really high world inflation, but both of those are caused by the root causes.

@raccoon city       Careful with the tone and the subject matter, it won’t be worth it if an argument breaks out here, regardless of who or what is right.

“Diversity is our strength” is a lie. It can be a strength, and diversity can also be extremely divisive. “Unity is our strength” is a more accurate take on it.

Sorry about that.

I will try to be more careful in the future.

I didn't start this argument, but I will try to end it.

If anyone still doesn't agree with me, that is your right, and we'll just have to agree to disagree.  :BEER:
