There was a party planned for her 100th on Jan 17. Shame she did not
make it but she still had plenty of fans at 99.

My grandmother did the same thing, dying just a few weeks short of 100.
We had had a big party planned for her 100th birthday and we had to
cancel it and have a funeral instead.

As an intuitive scientist of the highest order I have studied the post-100 group with great interest. Some make it past 100, but the vast majority of people 99 years old don't make it that far. The question is why. Of course age has something to do with it. But studies show that more people en route to 100 die at age 99, more than any other age after 60. Why?
I'll tell you why, it's the stress. Once they make into the 100+ club the pressure is really on. Even if they don't consciously think about it, breaking the world's oldest person record does prey on their brains. A bit of competition is good for the soul and can help a person stay alert for a longer life. But it can also drain a person. They hit 100 and it's only natural they start thinking about the record. Can they break it? Do other people think they're out to break it even if they're not? All these questions their age evokes weighs heavy on most of them, giving credence to my theory that lots of people die at age 99 because they can't handle the pressures of competing on a big time level in the 100+ club.
My great grandmother died at 99.

Only had to change the reason for the get together on the invitation
cards. Betty White was the type who is probably laughing her ass off
in heaven that she screwed everyone out of her 100th birthday party,
she was likely planning it that way for a long time, that'd be in
keeping with her sense of humor.

As an intuitive scientist of the highest order
Hey, "nutjob" has a new spelling. I'm going to start using it.
Cindy Hamilton
What a great compliment. Nut job' is a bit harsh though. Has a negative tone to it. Arrogant and demeaning. "Strange," "Different", "Weird, "Not exactly my cup of tea", would be more like it. I really am an intuitive scientist. Also a behavioral scientist, kind of the same thing actually. Point is, conventional scientists get credit for discoveries and concepts stolen from guys like me. They use our great insight to develop more pills and vaccines to make themselves look like they know stuff they don't. You say 'nut job' has a new spelling. I say it has a new meaning. Until you applied it to me I always considered it a negative term. Who wants to be known a nut job? From now on, maybe lots of people. Once they hear my philosophies, if they are openminded enough to listen, they will know I am far from nuts. Then they will know you are the real nut job for calling me one in a negative and arrogant and completely unfair way. They will know this. Then together united as one we will rise up against you and your kind in an effort to make this world a better place for all. Yes, I am a scientist. But I don't do it for money. I do it for the people.

Qualifications? We don't need no stinking qualifications! I guess you're talking about a diploma or a certificate of some kind, maybe. There's a bunch of inept and unqualified people coming through the college doors every year and it's only going to get worse. These people 'learn' just enough to pass enough exams to graduate. Once they those college doors open to let them out, that's when the learning stops. The learning that never started.

Would you at least agree that most people in most fields are not very good at what they do? And if you do agree, then would you not also agree that the same percentages apply to doctors and scientists as well? Whether you do or not, I already know what I believe - most are morons, technicians, procedecuralists, nothing more. Now, do their flaws in any way add to my credibility? Of course not. My point is the paper on the wall means nothing. I am not on the witness stand here. I say I'm an intuitive scientist, that's what I am. I don't have to prove it - not even to myself. But thanks for asking.

in your local supermarket.

I'll settle for that. By the way I have posted here often. I am not a regular but I do occasionally come in with food oriented questions because I do some cooking, mostly prepping, and must say I'm pretty good at it (in an intuitive way)................. There will be more insights on the way and some of my posts will not be food oriented, at least not directly. I say that because in some small way all things are related to food, aren't they? Even us as humans are food - worm food. It's an eat or be eaten world and this is an eat or be eaten newsgroup. Thanks for the warm reception. And I notice you have not yet checked out my entries into the bird group.

I don't know what the fuck you're talking about most times. That's not important. The important part is that you're not talking about other people all of the time. Keep up your good works.
I predict that in the future, we'll all be worm food. Well, compost anyway.

Thomas, it is so wonderful to see you've joined us here in rfc. Your
insights are most welcome.
I'll settle for that. By the way I have posted here often. I am not a regular but I do occasionally come in with food oriented questions because I do some cooking, mostly prepping, and must say I'm pretty good at it (in an intuitive way)................. There will be more insights on the way and some of my posts will not be food oriented, at least not directly. I say that because in some small way all things are related to food, aren't they? Even us as humans are food - worm food. It's an eat or be eaten world and this is an eat or be eaten newsgroup. Thanks for the warm reception. And I notice you have not yet checked out my entries into the bird group.
I don't know what the fuck you're talking about most times. That's not important. The important part is that you're not talking about other people all of the time. Keep up your good works.
I predict that in the future, we'll all be worm food. Well, compost anyway.

She's right Mike, I know her from another group. I am not all over the place with groups, just this one and my regular one which has an amazing number of only 3 regular posters. More like 2 and 1/2 as the 3rd one comes and goes. But really, aside from Judith vs Jill, etc., to tell you the truth - and you may consider it selfish if you wish - I don't respond so much to the name of the person posting as I do to the post itself. Trew dat! But do I really know Judith? Of course not. Not really. An old standup group I used to frequent, the first I ever went to almost 20 years ago, was highly populated and busy. I got there at its peak. Before I came in some of the people in that group had been together for so long that they arranged to meet at a hotel in Hollywood Ca where they got to know each other in person to some extent - and from that moment on I believe anyone posting into the group who wasn't at the party that day or famous in some way was considered an outsider or a troll )even if they weren't).

"Hey wait a minute man, before you respond to my post - were you at the party in Hollywood? No? Then don't talk to us, we don't know you and we don't want to."

I didn't see her reply until you posted. I've been enjoying this
filtering thing lately. I saw a disgusting/annoying "Judith" post a few
days ago and made a filter out of it. Problem solved.

Most groups that are still alive are now like that, 2-5 regular active
posters. This group is a unique in that way; I have yet to find another
with so many active posters. I even enjoy reading most of the posts... heh

I quit school at age 15. Actually I made them kick me out as legally in Pennsylvania you had to be 16 with parental permission to quit. I just kept acting up till they booted me out. And man did I love it.

I am not disturbed by the content of people's posts. If I don't like what's there I just move on. You should see what's going on in our group - one guy comes in from out of nowhere and puts one copied and pasted post on the board multiple times, on purpose just to mess with us. I am saying you have a well run group here and the distractions are minimal (it seems to me) and might even be seen as entertaining from time to time. For me there is no such thing as off topic. I'm sure the filter is nice and I would probably put it to use for people like the guy I just mentioned above. But for people whose post content I don't care for, no, I wouldn't filter them out because one day they may have something to say that's worthwhile in a big way. Who knows?

I'm pretty perceptive though. When Judith came to our group I could tell, or thought I could tell, right away that she had come from another group where maybe she was not wanted. Right or wrong, that is the vibe I got. But like just now, her post above, I did not read it all the way through, I just bypassed it - and admitted it to her as well. To each their own when it comes to newsgroup etiquette. But I think mine is good. Outstanding even. I'm a fair minded guy.

I tested out of school when I was 16. Legally, I could have just quit,
but I knew that I'd pass the HS equivalency test, so I got permission
from the principal. If you were under 17, you had to have permission
to test out. That was in April, maybe even March, and the principal
told me not to finish out 10th grade because he knew I'd pass the
test. He was very happy to be rid of me.

I got a full time, minimum wage job at the car wash, and the day that
I got my test results I told my mother that I wanted to start paying
room and board. She told me that wasn't necessary, and that I didn't
earn much at the car wash. I told her that I was fine paying less
because I didn't make much money, but now that I was no longer in
school, that I needed to pay something, at least as much as the
additional cost of food and hot water for showers, because I didn't
want to be a freeloader. That lasted for about six months, until my
step-father pissed me off and I moved out a few months after I was
17.

Is "testing out of school" American for "not finishing school"? Life
without any education whatsoever seems rather drab.

Nice story. I can't claim to be as independent as you. I took to the streets at a young age, but not all the way into the pavement. I did not want to work. By that I mean I did not want a job. I am a good worker. Better than most I've met who claim to love it. Most places I've been I've wanted out, not just school. I had a tendency to view most things as doing time, like being in prison, wondering, "How long is this going to take", instead of trying to get into it. But either way I can't complain. I'm glad the way things turned out. I am glad I got out of school. I was glad I got out of lots of things. I have no regrets but am open to complaints now and then mainly for entertainment. I learned how to type in reform school. In public school I would have told them to "Make me" take the class. But the reform school is different. You can say no but you're not going to like it. So I too typing class and boy am I glad I learned. Glad I had it forced on me. But was it forced on me really? Maybe I'm clairvoyant. If that were the case, when I'd tell friends I'm being sent to reform school and they ask, "What for?", I can tell them, "To learn how to type." See, this is a positive attitude I would say. Thanks Bryan.

You could bury the hatchet, since you are a fair minded guy.

You could work toward a GED. Lots of help available for that. Just
ask. Ir would be valid anywhere, not just Pennsylvania.

You don't have to spend your life on usenet, grinding axes.

Good luck!

There is no hatchet, Mr. Rogers, and I have nothing against Judith, I merely mentioned that when she showed up in our group I suspected she was having some kind of problem in another one. Also, I don't live in Pa. I grew up there, partially. I lived in Hollywood Ca for 23 years and have been in W-S NC since '94. In fact I haven't left this town in over 20 years. I have no real passion for anything but am content. Moving on...................

I never cared about a GED or diploma of any kind. I wanted out of school from as far back as I can remember. But I have to admit I​ am glad I​ had the 3 R's forced ​o​n me. I got a bette​r ​education outside the school doors.​ For some, when they come through the college doors that's when the learning stops. Especially with doctors, but that's another matter.

​The first few weeks after they booted me out​ of school​ I'd wake up in a panic ​each​ day looking at the alarm clock afraid of being late for school before remembering, "Oh​ yeah,​ that's right, I don't ​go to​school anymore', before sinking back into the sheets with a big lazy sigh. I hated school.

But I'll give 'Mr. Rogers" a pass.

So, what is your background and what are your qualifications that enable
you to call yourself a scientist?
Qualifications? We don't need no stinking qualifications! I guess you're talking about a diploma or a certificate of some kind, maybe. There's a bunch of inept and unqualified people coming through the college doors every year and it's only going to get worse. These people 'learn' just enough to pass enough exams to graduate. Once they those college doors open to let them out, that's when the learning stops. The learning that never started.
Would you at least agree that most people in most fields are not very good at what they do? And if you do agree, then would you not also agree that the same percentages apply to doctors and scientists as well? Whether you do or not, I already know what I believe - most are morons, technicians, procedecuralists, nothing more. Now, do their flaws in any way add to my credibility? Of course not. My point is the paper on the wall means nothing. I am not on the witness stand here. I say I'm an intuitive scientist, that's what I am. I don't have to prove it - not even to myself. But thanks for asking.
Thomas, it is so wonderful to see you've joined us here in rfc. Your

So, to summarize, your qualifications were obtained from the tabloid rack
in your local supermarket.
That's your take on it. What's wrong with the tabloid rack anyway? Some funny stuff there. I'll admit the headlines are usually funnier than the articles. I rarely read them but I have and it's true, the headlines are the best. Photos making celebrities look bad - or maybe more like what they really look like - those are funny too. Like the death's door face shots of Richard Simmons for example.

No, I am an intuitive scientist. But it doesn't end there. I am intuitive a lot of things. It's my modus operandi, my motif if you will. I love that word, motif - sounds cool, make it sound like I knew more than I really do, which is a big part of the intuitive scientist racket, and come to think of it a big part of the conventional scientist racket as well. What's your racket, Graham - challenging other people to prove themselves for you and you alone? Another wannabe prosecuting attorney it seems like to me.

Like I said, "Intuitive scientists don't need no stinking diplomas."

There was a party planned for her 100th on Jan 17. Shame she did not
make it but she still had plenty of fans at 99.
My grandmother did the same thing, dying just a few weeks short of 100.
We had had a big party planned for her 100th birthday and we had to
cancel it and have a funeral instead.
As an intuitive scientist of the highest order I have studied the post-100 group with great interest. Some make it past 100, but the vast majority of people 99 years old don't make it that far. The question is why. Of course age has something to do with it. But studies show that more people en route to 100 die at age 99, more than any other age after 60. Why?
I'll tell you why, it's the stress. Once they make into the 100+ club the pressure is really on. Even if they don't consciously think about it, breaking the world's oldest person record does prey on their brains. A bit of competition is good for the soul and can help a person stay alert for a longer life. But it can also drain a person. They hit 100 and it's only natural they start thinking about the record. Can they break it? Do other people think they're out to break it even if they're not? All these questions their age evokes weighs heavy on most of them, giving credence to my theory that lots of people die at age 99 because they can't handle the pressures of competing on a big time level in the 100+ club.
My guess is that more people reach 99 than 100. More people reach 100 than 101, etc, etc, etc.
True, but the odd phenomenon seems to be that many more people ONLY
reach 99... more people seem to die just at that age, rather than below
or above.

The graph at the above link is for the USA over a large sample space. It
clearly shows peaks at 92 for women, and 85 for men. There is nothing
visible at 99 for either sex.

(It also clearly shows a peak for both at 1 year old.)

There was a party planned for her 100th on Jan 17. Shame she did not
make it but she still had plenty of fans at 99.
My grandmother did the same thing, dying just a few weeks short of 100.
We had had a big party planned for her 100th birthday and we had to
cancel it and have a funeral instead.
As an intuitive scientist of the highest order I have studied the post-100 group with great interest. Some make it past 100, but the vast majority of people 99 years old don't make it that far. The question is why. Of course age has something to do with it. But studies show that more people en route to 100 die at age 99, more than any other age after 60. Why?
I'll tell you why, it's the stress. Once they make into the 100+ club the pressure is really on. Even if they don't consciously think about it, breaking the world's oldest person record does prey on their brains. A bit of competition is good for the soul and can help a person stay alert for a longer life. But it can also drain a person. They hit 100 and it's only natural they start thinking about the record. Can they break it? Do other people think they're out to break it even if they're not? All these questions their age evokes weighs heavy on most of them, giving credence to my theory that lots of people die at age 99 because they can't handle the pressures of competing on a big time level in the 100+ club.

Mostly, humans have a fondness for the number 100. 100 has no special significance as far as numbers goes. People just believe that it does.

Indeed, 100 is a very special number - it's an integer. That makes it an exceedingly rare number.

I find humor in the whole thing. It's just a bunch of numbers, but it can be interesting. Studies must be conducted to get at the truth. You know what it really comes down to here? Milestones. Reaching 100 is a milestone. So is living to see a new year. So we can start our study right there - with the new year. How many people die the day before the new year as opposed to the day after? I'm sure heavy alcohol consumption adds to the 'day after' group. But I'll bet more people die the day before. Because it's a milestone. The pressure is on. "Will I live to see the New Year?" That pressure alone is enough to explode a few hearts. So the question must be asked (and answered): Do more people die the day before New Years or the day after? Once we have the answer we can conduct other studies to further tweak the ever evolving system. Let's do this thing. We can begin next year.

You have no idea how much I hate to admit it, but I am having trouble understanding what you're trying to say with the new age mumbo jumbo keyboard icon text mixed in with Ghe Ghe Ghe thing, some kind of a snicker or sneer or chortle I'm guessing. If so, is it for me or agin me? Anyway, I am proud of my ability, and sometimes almost my desire, to admit that I don't know some things. I enjoy saying "I don't know". It makes me feel superior in some ways. In the meantime though, could you help out this old timer whose intuitive powers are not enough to translate some kind of meaning out of your cryptic response. Thanks.

Someone thinks they are being cute, by posting fake messages under his

Perhaps if it looks different to you, it is because you are using Google

I think it looks the same. When I said it was cryptic I meant I didn't know what he meant if he meant anything at all. I use google groups. I am not into getting anything new, making any changes. I am an old fogey with enough of an open mind to know that most of my narrow minded viewpoints were arrived at through open minded thinking. Yeah, I figured the ghe ghe ghe thing was some kind of laugh. I don't even mind, in fact I sometimes actually enjoy using fake words, going more by sound than actual dictionary meaning. But yes, I am aware the guy is trying to be a nuisance and seems to be succeeding. Thanks.

Alcohol consumption can lead to deaths before the new year also; depends
on how early they start drinking.
I have a theory based on my expertise as an intuitive scientist that no matter how drunk someone gets they sober up real quick when they're about to die. Even when they're passed out, who knows what kind of dreams they may encounter on their way to whatever comes next.

Aw come on man everyone knows horses don't fly. Let's put some realism in those posts please. Funny thing, I don't want to die anymore than anyone else, but I genuinely wouldn't mind a very slow death - some kind of slow moving disease that takes about 3 or 4 years to do me in. I want to know I have it in advance. Then I can get the narcotics if needed or desired, kick back and relax with no irritating plans for the future. The best way would be to lose maybe 1% of your lung capacity every year, happening so slowly you never feel panic or the need to gulp for air. Slowly over time your body wastes away and requires less oxygen. Of course this could lead to other complications, but we can talk about them another time.

Come on man, let's get this big bird flying!

God dammit, I knew when I wrote those words some mathematically precise scientist type would come along to challenge my obviously not quite perfect presentation. Forget the numbers. Point is, I'm talking about losing lung capacity slowly, very slowly - just enough to eventually kill you if something else doesn't get you first - so slowly it's never a panic and in fact at times even pleasant. So once again this proves I am either not good enough at expressing myself or I should have stayed away from using numbers in the first place, as they can always be challenged, especially by ultra scientific by the book types. Another mistake I make, mostly out of laziness, is using examples. Like maybe using a famous person nearly everyone has heard of to make my point, and all it does it turn it into a discussion about the famous person with the original topic taking an immediate backseat before blowing out the window into the past forever.

I don't want or expect an exact ETOD (estimated time of death), but first I'd like to be diagnosed with a deadly but slow moving disease that gives me 3 or 4 years of life, even at a reduced rate. I know the other day I said 2 or 3 years would be good enough, but I have since changed my mind. There's got to be something relaxing about being told you have only a certain amount of time left. Forget about the future (until it gets here and things start feeling really bad). I would like that. Better than going out with a bang. I want to go from the inside out - the Dick Clark Syndrome, not aging till the last minute, a living hell for sure, but pretty decent till near the end. I do not want to die of something else first. At least not at the moment. I'm just glad everyone dies. Imagine the hostility and resentment of living in a world in which half the population lives forever and the other half dies and they have a test to determine which half you're in and you find out you're in the half that's going to die. This could breed a lot of resentment. So the fact that EVERYBODY has to die has to have some kind of calming effect on the finality of it all. I can talk about death all day, makes me feel alive.

Just remember that conditions like that usually mean a slow, lingering,

My father in law died peacefully in his sleep after almost 95 years of
a healthy and active life. My brother in law dropped dead at 61. He was
talking to his lady friend and just dropped down dead in the middle of a
sentence. My wife's best friend was out shopping with her husband when
she told him she didn't feel well, then dropped and was gone.

I have sat by while others died of cancer. If our pets were suffering
like that we would take them to the vet and have them put to sleep.

I'm hoping for a massive stroke or heart attack... or something along

not while driving...

She had several recurring bouts with cancer. The treatment couldn't
have been pleasant. But yes, her husband, who had been taking care of
and helping her through her illness dropped dead at her feet one day.
Really, after everything they'd been through together, kind of a cruel
turn of events.

I have considered that. Of course there is suffering to go along with most exit methods, even those we choose for ourselves. I used to be like others, thinking I preferred the fast and supposedly easy unexpected departure. But the older I get the more I'm going the other way. I realize in real life there is usually major discomfort accompanying deadly departures. But as is my custom I am talking more hypothetically, not in absolutes when I say that to slowly wither away would be a nice way to die. You just get slowly weaker and weaker by the day - so slow you don't even notice it. The problem with my ideal way to die, which I call "Withering", is because it feels so good - the problem being that in order to continue withering you've got to stay alive which requires staying healthy to some degree, which can be work at times, work to offset the benefits of bliss. If you want to wither away you've got to remain strong enough to enjoy it. That means good eating and some exercise now and then. Knowing you're going to die you can nix the "have to's" and move on into the future without dwelling on it (I think)................

people would die every 800 years of a car accident.

So you're saying mathematically there's no way out?

I'm just glad everyone dies. Imagine the hostility and resentment of living in a world in which half the population lives forever and the other half dies and they have a test to determine which half you're in and you find out you're in the half that's going to die. This could breed a lot of resentment. So the fact that EVERYBODY has to die has to have some kind of calming effect on the finality of it all. I can talk about death all day, makes me feel alive.
TJ. you always did have a different perspective of life. I bet some
psychology major could write a thesis on that.

Good to see you again.

You are describing dying in one of Hitler's camps. This is not a nice
way for anyone to go. You should know better, Thomas. What you might
enjoy is a gook stroke; something that'll put you in a coma for a few
years before you finally expire. Just think about all the weird shit
that might go through your mind.
p.s. How's Ollie?
I'll take the dreams any day but only if I can control them to some extent. Not all the way. If you can completely control your dreams they would lack zing. Gotta have something scary happen from time to time. But if it gets bad you want to be able to kick out of it. The worst thing you can have is a nightmare for eternity, one from which you can never awake.
There you go again with the death camps Jew thing. No, I was not describing one of Hitler's camps. And who says they were his camps? You talk about them as if Hitler owned them all by himself. What did he do, buy them from China? I don't care how bad the camp people had it, I can always imagine worse, and may in fact in my own way have endured worse - just cause you don't hear me griping about every little detail every little day. "How's Ollie?" Yo, ask him yourself, I'm sure he'll tell you.
Mr. Tough Guy
I would not minimize you suffering, but even you must admit the
following must have been a living nightmare:

Holocaust survivors reveal unusual Nazi cruelty
Updated 12:54 AM PT February 15, 2001
By Anastasio Philemon, World News Service, Los Angeles (WNS-LA)

Revelations continue to emerge of Hitlerite brutality against Jewish
concentration camp prisoners. Reports surfacing in recent former
prisoner associations' statements reveal a hitherto unreported fact
that during their World War 2 incarceration at Auschwitz, Ravensbruck,
and Chelmno, prisoners were routinely denied the use of toilet paper.
Further cruelty by the Nazi SS guards was demonstrated when prisoners
were forced to use sand paper in place of regular issue toilet tissue.

“Those SS beasts forced me to use it,” described Anna Rosenstein, a
former Auschwitz survivor. “They even had Capos (selected Jewish
prisoners acting as collaborative overseers for the SS over other
prisoners) checking to make sure we used the sand paper, doing spot
checks when they suspected we weren’t following regulations. Some of
us were beaten, whipped, or spanked when the sand paper was found to
be unused. It was terrible!”

Another prisoner described a public humiliation he was forced to
endure by a particularly sadistic SS guard. “During the morning
roll-call, the SS sergeant made me step forward and loudly announce to
my fellow prisoners that I sometimes didn’t use the sand paper
properly,” said Saul Lewitzky, now a resident of Newport Beach,
California. “I had to hold up that day’s issue of sand paper and shout
out that I would use it faithfully and properly. I hated them for
that. Even to this day I can’t see sand paper without feeling ill,
humiliated, degraded, or break out into a fearful sweat.”

One former Capo who pleaded to not be identified admitted the claims
were true. “I had to oversee the use of the sand paper, I had no
choice!” he lamented. “If I didn’t do as the SS told me, then they
would have forced me to use the sand paper too instead of the toilet
tissue which I was privileged to use. But, when the SS wasn’t
watching, I sometimes slipped regular toilet tissue to my fellow
prisoners in the latrines. I probably saved many Jewish lives that
way!”

Many prisoners developed serious rashes to their private parts as a
result of the forced use of the sand paper, but when seeking medical
treatment they were often laughed at by SS medical orderlies. “I could
hardly even sit down, and the daily trip to the latrine was sheer
torture,” remembered Leon Aritzky, who now lives in Eilat, Israel. “My
rash sometimes bled but when asking for medicine, the orderlies always
burst into laughter and cracked jokes. They sometimes even dangled
clean toilet paper in front of us — which they were allowed to use,
but not us — to further humiliate and torture us.”

Thousands of prisoners are reported to have died from the use of the
sand paper.

Researchers in Germany have produced wartime photographs of piles of
industrial sand paper, often shown loaded onto boxcars before shipment
to concentration camps. Other photographs show empty boxcars prior to
the loading of the sand paper.

Documentation recently viewed by the Simon Wiesenthal Center affirms
that the sand paper manufacturer of Sweden which filled Nazi German
orders — and which is a subsidiary of the American Company
International Industrial Paper Suppliers — knew what the paper was
being used for but continued to supply it anyway. A SWC spokesman
announced that it, in conjunction with the World Jewish Congress and
the International Federation of Jewish Deputies, would be launching
lawsuits against both the subsidiary and its parent corporation for
complicity in the Holocaust. Early reports project a seeking of
damages in the region of US$18 Billion.

An IIPS representative made a terse comment about the revelations: “We
are deeply shocked and saddened to learn of this lamentable wartime
activity by our company,” stated Thomas Harkins. “A recent company
board meeting has already authorized meetings with Jewish
representatives and Holocaust survivor associations to work out
appropriate compensations. We cannot express our guilt and regrets
sufficiently. We feel morally indebted to Jewish people for bringing
these facts to our attention, and we pray that this will never happen
again.”

I told you before and I'll tell you again, Judith - I don't care about the songs of the past, especially the time-worn holocaust blues as sung by you and others. I am an honest person, so I'm telling you now without knowing how old you are that I probably read about the concentration camps before you were born. As a teenager I'd get WW2 history books from the library and look up only those chapters dealing with the holocaust. So I've already heard every sad song sung about that era - and frankly it's making me sick. As for real music from the past, I love it. I've got some youtube stuff from the 30s playing right now. I'm sorry I have no direct response to your highly 'agenda-iced' post and would love to exchange thoughts on any number of topics, but for your long copied and pasted news service report, of which I am not impressed, I am sorry, I have no response other than to say you can bet your life there's a ton of people going through living hell right now all over the world in tiny holocausts that all added up make yours look like a picnic.

Some of us may be willing to paypal you the fee... Maybe just some
laxatives and/or MDMA in the teapot would suffice, though.
I am opposed to murdering other people, at least on my own. This is a business, it's not murder. I believe by your words that you recognize that. Unfortunately I am not set up for paypal and other web based functions. Plus, quite frankly, I prefer a more hands on approach to doing business. I want to meet with the people who pay me to die. In fact I refuse to have anteing to do with their demise unless I have met them first. If they meet requirements I assign underlings to dispatch them with instructions on how to do it. I also demand that all who work for me video each death so I can watch it later at my leisure. Pretty funny, "some of us may be willing to paypal you the fee." Very few people want to see me dead. I don't mean enough for anyone to care. But you never know, you might have zero enemies and yet some delusional loony out there might have you pegged for whatever reason as his number one enemy.

Watch out!

Two ahead of me? I hope you mean two ahead of me slated for extinction. That's enough padding to get by a long while. By the time the two ahead of me taken out there will be others to jump my place in line, I just know it. So I am not worried. But it is true - what a way to die too - to be hunted down by someone you don't even know who has something against you for some reason.

I have a theory based on my expertise as an intuitive scientist that no matter
how drunk someone gets they sober up real quick when they're about to die.
Even when they're passed out, who knows what kind of dreams they may encounter
on their way to whatever comes next.
"We're on time,
for a visit to God!
No one is ever late.
So why are the angels singing
with such evil voices?
Or is that a bell
that's sobbed itself out of tune?
Or is it me,
screaming to the horses to slow down?
Slower horses,
just a little slower.
I beg you just gallop, don't fly!
But somehow the horses seem cruel.
I didn't finish living.
I pray to finish my song.
To my steeds I'll sing
and finish this verse,
for a moment is all I have left.
Is it me,
screaming to the horses to slow down?
Slower horses,
just a little slower.
I beg you just gallop, don't fly. "
Uhm, Ghe Ghe Ghe. This is my frogger. Yes. Ghe Ghe Ghe :)))))))))))

Nothing is off topic when it comes to food. It covers a lot of ground since everything alive is food to something else in this eat or be eaten world. We need to go OT more often feeling like we have to mention it all the time.

Michael's an excellent example of American ignorance and explains how
Americans were able to vote for the Trump clown. The deplorables are
poorly educated, poorly informed, have never been out of their own
country and are easily influenced. Yet they do have the right to vote.
And there you are: Donald Trump. I can't wait for the next American
election. May I suggest Sylvester Stallone? :)

Moron, Stallone is raking in many millions and you think he's
stupid... if anyone is stupid it's definatly you.
Unsure why his net worth is relevent, but anyway...

"As of 2011 Nicki Minaj’s net worth being estimated at $80 million"

"As of this writing Cardi B's net worth is $40 million"

"Paris Hilton is a New York born heiress, socialite, model, actress,
and entrepreneur. As of this writing, she has a net worth of $300
million dollars"

According to you, the above must all belong to Mensa.

Yup, Miss Bwuthie is always lashing out... her sex change FLOPPED, the docs tried to turn her
vaginal tissue into a penis, but the procedure failed, her wee - wee peenie rotted and
fell off, even the cur dogs turned up their nozes at it, lol...

Stallone is a VEWY smart cookie, has done well in life, went from Hell's Kitchen to almost a half - billion, he certainly
would be far preferable to the crash test dummy currently living in the basement of The White House:

https://www.celebritynetworth.com/richest-celebrities/actors/sylvester-stallone-net-worth/

Sylvester Stallone Net Worth:

$400 Million

What is Sylvester Stallone's net worth and salary?

"Sylvester Stallone is an American actor, screenwriter, producer and director who has a net worth of
$400 million dollars. As of this writing, Stallone's movies have generated more than $4 billion in
global revenue. Unlike most Hollywood stars, Sylvester has written, produced and/or directed
many of his major franchise movies...

Sylvester Stallone was born on July 6, 1946 as Michael Sylvester Gardenzio Stallone in Hell's Kitchen,
Manhattan. He's the elder son of Italian-born Francesco "Frank" Stallone Sr, a hairdresser, and Jackie
Stallone, an astrologer and dancer...

Stallone's first starring role was in "The Party at Kitty", a softcore adult film he explains he did out
of desperation after being evicted from his apartment. He was paid $200 for two days of work...

In December 2020 Sylvester paid $35.4 million for a 1.5-acre property with 13,000 square-foot
mansion in Palm Beach, Florida...

Salary Highlights

After writing the screenplay for "Rocky" in just three days, Stallone found interest in his project at
multiple studios. United Artists was the front runner but they wanted it as a starring vehicle for
Robert Redford of James Caan. He relentlessly pressured the film's producers Irwin Winkler and
Robert Chartoff to allow him to star in the movie. He accepted a cut-rate salary of $23,000 for the
film. That's the same as around $110,000 today. The movie went on to earn $225 million on a
budget of $1 million..."
