If I had $10 Million - An Inflation Story
For 10 million I could buy a mile of the new twinned highway and still have enough left to get me one of those smart bombs, just a little one, just big enough to blow up my strip of twinned highway. I'd have to squirrel away enough to buy a wide angled camcorder and film the explosion from a rented helicopter. And there'd have to be road blocks to make sure there was no traffic - I couldn't afford the lawsuits.
Or maybe I'd buy me one a those new private sector prisons, double my fortune selling recycled uranium-powered tasers to convicted panhandlers so they can take their antisocial disorders out on sadistic guards peddling refried baked bean sandwiches. I could have a nice little factory farm in the yard - the inmates could provide free labour while I watch the US Open. I could give free sausages to whichever con raised the best sow.
Also enjoyed your poetry in the previous post,,,,a lot!
Toast: Luckily for you there's hurricane making machines all up and down those highways.
TWM: ah yes, with money like that the possibilities are endless. but why move to the sticks when i can write about it from right here?
You could get your friends to pitch in with the $10 mill, and then buy them out later.
Oh, ten million? I give 91/2 of it away. Who wants that sort of money?
I think it's crazy that they flatten everything, then "landscape". Idiocy.
Ten million might be a dolphin. That's the thing for people with more money than they can use but damned if they stop needing it.
As for your comment about DJ- I am pretty familiar and actually have a post on a section of one book elsewhere this week. Not on my own blog though.
I actually did write about culture. That's weird, huh? It was posted yesterday so I can even prove that we are not in collusion!! So there!
As for Hurricane making machines...I believe we have, in a way, already invented one.
blowing up highways, smart bombs, peddling recycled uranium ..
and blowing up refried baked bean sandwiches?
boy toys are fascinatingly endearing indeed ... ;)
MD: thanks for dropping by, and welcome. 10 mil would give me more money than brains, and i've always hated people like that.
Lynn: weird indeed, synchronistic, too. fun to find like minds in cyber, though. that photo, though, is a bit of a trick. they're tearing up a parking lot. unfortunately, they're replacing it with a condo development. which will be fine if the condos are affordable. but, what are the odds of that? i'll keep you posted.
foam: sadly, not just for boys anymore. maybe the girls will play nicer?
