@PSyvret @TheKouk Right, so 98% of people’s “debt problem” is their own goddam greedy fault. Joe should say that.

@GreenJ Surely you spend enough time during the week with horse’s arses?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GreenJ

@mpesce @TheKouk YES THE BEERS THE BEERS THE BEERS THE BEERS THE BEERS THE BEERS THE BEERS THE BEERS THE BEERS.

@TheKouk Thanks. So as I suspected, this “shocking national debt” is basically bullshit.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheKouk

@TheKouk Do we know the average interest payments being made per week by the average home mortgage payer or credit card holder?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheKouk

TheKouk The $1 billion a month in interest payments on govt debt equals two beers a week per person!

I can’t wait for that bubble to burst. Oh, the whining about the tragedy of it all! It’ll be hilarious.

@joshgnosis @juhasaarinen @bengrubb PwC doesn’t do that, they just total up “the economy”. The copyright industry misrepresents it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

@joshgnosis @juhasaarinen @bengrubb I forgot to mention that it also assumes people won’t spend the money elsewhere in “the economy”.

RT @posty: maybe you should just think of it as they have an erectile dysfunction, because that’s funnier. [Fair point. Practice adopted.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to posty

Also, whenever anyone says they’re “pumped” about doing some activity, I think less of them as a human being.

via Janetter for Mac

Whenever anyone says they’re “pumped” about doing some activity, I wonder what size pump, what fluid, and where the nozzle is inserted.

Of course @comododesktop’s Twitter feed seems to be talk-only. “Look at our thing.” “Look at another of our things.” Hilariously dumb.

via Janetter for Mac

Why do SSL CAs all have online workflows that seem to have be designed by a brain-damaged dog with mercury poisoning, eh @comododesktop?

@drunkenmadman Heh. Lucky you. But I knew that if I didn’t do it straight away then it’d linger.

@sylmobile @sleepingdingo I think any horoscopes I did would have to follow the auteur model, though.

Yes, there will be a new episode of “The 9pm Edict” on Sunday night. Consider this a warning.

via Janetter for Mac

Sat plan, draft: Re-plan next few weeks; stir-fry kangaroo; podcast listening; research for SEKRIT project; scripting for “The 9pm Edict”.

via Janetter for Mac

@sylmobile @sleepingdingo Thanks. Except I already have too many projects that I don’t have time to finish. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

Maybe I should start writing horoscopes, as @sleepingdingo suggested.

Saturday. They hint at possible future benefits, but they are lying. They are always lying. Saturday.
