Life is cheap.

Arithmetically, this does make sense to me…

I’d like to say that suspected murderers aren’t really¬†released on bail of $34 in South Africa. But it does happen.

Still… I’d probably caution against murdering tv-license inspectors. The opportunity cost of sitting in a holding cell with several Ne’er-do-wells that will inevitably… eh… test the structural integrity of your sphincter, while your bail hearing is continually postponed for a month seems steep. From what I understand they don’t even buy you dinner first…

Marketing 101

Marketing is the process by which a state of felt deprivation of some basic satisfaction is communicated to you… and then something is offered to you to correct that perceived deficiency.

For example…

I had NO IDEA gluten free parking even existed. But now that I know… CLEARLY this is something that I need.

But now that I know… What if they run out of gluten free parking bays? I think I’m starting to develop some anxiety about all of this. Will I just be able to switch back to regular? Is that even legal? I’m starting to think this sort of thing should probably be mandated by the state. And maybe a professional body should be set up, for monitoring and control purposes. There are a lot of shysters out there (look at me getting my yiddish on) and we need to safeguard our society against these unscrupulous operators.

Anyway, I think the important take away here is that education is KEY.

Good luck out there. Stay frosty!!

Outsourced!

And you dare mock Capitalism…

This frees up a lot of my time. Its been great! I haven’t decided whether I want to upgrade to the full self-loathing package yet. Apparently for an extra $1 he’ll run himself into a brick wall.

On the one hand I feel a little bad for him. On the other, he’s earning money which he can use to support his venerable parents and twelve siblings. I do however feel morally obligated to try and balance his capacity to sustain brain damage at my behest with his own hard currency requirements. (I don’t think he’s educated enough to understand what he’s doing is bad for him)

In any event. I totally recommend this new feature. Also the app is great. Very user friendly.
