Has to be one of the 10 worst years of my life. Not on a personal level so much as everything else.

I came across This Article by Dave Barry.

Quote:
the administration had to pivot back to yet another zombie issue, health care, because it turned out that Obamacare, despite all the massive brainpower behind it, had some “glitches,” in the same sense that the universe has some “atoms.”


How did 2013 rate for you?

One of the worst. Can't wait for it to be over but I don't see 2014 going that well for me personally either.

I'm not normally a Dave Barry fan, but that was good.

Not the best, but certainly not the worst. Short of winning the lottery, improvements would definitely have been the proverbial icing on the cake (good, but not compelling cake :D). There was far more room for being worse.

Same here. Personally, not too bad, but I'm seeing the seeds of collapse... 2014 will be worse.

The best way to prepare for the collapse is to go ahead and fuck your life up yourself. Wreck yourself professionally, financially, socially, sentimentally... just divest yourself of everything and everyone you care about. Make yourself hit bottom. Then get in shape, study survival skills, arm yourself, and start creating secret caches of supplies in secure locations within a 100 mile radius. Then, when the real collapse comes, you'll be like, "Bitchin' dude", and ready to have fun.

I volunteer you to be the next keynote speaker for the DNC. Every democrat party member should follow your advice exactly.

Don't you know some in OTW suspect him to be Obama?

Then between his last post and the state of the economy, everything suddenly makes much more sense, and we can presume the country is actually heading in the "right" direction.

Never let a perfectly good crisis go to waste.

We've logically deduced this and BK has never denied it.

Let me be perfectly clear: I can neither confirm nor deny such speculation during an ongoing investigation pertaining to national security about which I do not recall details handled by my staff about which I may or may not have mis-spoken, as I have consistently said.

as for 2013: year's been ok-ish. got a new job that'll take me outta this hellhole next February (aka Krautland) so that's a plus, but rather a plus for 2014.

Where will you be going? Did you know there are six times as many Einingers in the U.S.A. as in Germany? Did you know the American IRS has more employees than the German Army? :P

I find that name thing hard to believe... then again, not so much really :D.

The German Army's a bunch of wusses. What they need is a war to make them get their head outta their arses. Just yesterday I heard this incredible news report that apparently some random Kraut soldier successfully sued the bunch because they got their panties in a knot over the military not acknowledging their "individuality". Ugh. "Yadda yadda yadda my-skirt-has-a-loose-thread-what-should-i-do-xoxoxox". Working for the IRS is an Iron Man competition in comparison :D.

Also, we're moving to Dublin. Not exactly Belfast on the manliness scale, but good 'nuff :D.

two close relatives died.
Merkel won the elections.
the most evil pro-eavesdropping supporter became federal 'information privacy czar'
and it started with one of my Guinea pigs being euthanized.
