Christmas

Merry to all of you and Happy New Year too.

I'd like to thank Pyrrho for his continued work for us. Pretty damn selfless and too often unacknowledged.

Thank you. Have a wonderful holiday.

A forum is nothing without people who post on it. You guys make it what it is.

It is interesting to reflect on the breathe of stuff we talk about here. I feel free to raise really arcane topics and no one seems to mind, ditto rob with that esoteric fission/fusion crap or witness with his fondness for national socialist art.

Working in a bank call center on Xmas Eve is THE BEST!!!

I have ruined three Christmas’s today (or so I have been told) because I can’t wave a magic wand and make money appear in people’s accounts. And it’s only lunchtime.

Next year, I am starting a “ruined Xmas” pool with my co workers

AND you have to be polite to them.

That's the worst part. Never had your exact job, but I know by analogy.

I think I'd actually enjoy your job. Ruining people's Xmas is fun!

And Merry Christmas to everyone!

What's a Libertarian Christmas?

Kick a poor person and don't give any gifts because that is socialism?

Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.
