Indeed. It's funny nonetheless. Smile

The Government has decided to implement a scheme to put workers of 55 years of age and above on early, mandatory retirement, thus creating jobs and reducing unemployment.

This scheme will be known as RAPE (Retire Aged People Early).

Persons selected to be RAPED can apply to the Government to be
considered for the SHAFT program (Special Help After Forced
Termination).

Persons who have been RAPED and SHAFTED will be reviewed under the SCREW program (System Covering Retired-Early Workers).

A person may be RAPED once, SHAFTED twice and SCREWED as many times as the Government deems appropriate.

Persons who have been RAPED could get AIDS (Additional Income for Dependents & Spouse) or HERPES (Half Earnings for Retired Personnel Early Severance).

Obviously persons who have AIDS or HERPES will not be SHAFTED
or SCREWED any further by the Government.

Persons who are not RAPED and are staying on will receive as
much SHIT (Special High Intensity Training) as possible. The
Government has always prided themselves on the amount of SHIT they give our citizens.

Should you feel that you do not receive enough SHIT, please bring this to the attention of your MP, who has been trained to give you all the SHIT you can handle.

Sincerely,
The Committee for Economic Value of Individual Lives (E.V.I.L.)

PS - Due to recent budget cuts and the rising cost of electricity, gas and oil, as well as current market conditions, The Light at the End of the Tunnel has been turned off.

This... this sounds stolen from Cracked or something. No one puts in that much work to for a post buried on page 3 of an obscure thread.


'Stolen' is such an ugly word. Dodgy

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Yes, the monotonous assembly line activities are better done by
machines, or will be soon. However, there is no way in hell that
everyone is going to be able to get jobs as innovators. How is the job
market going to support something like that in a capitalistic economy?
It is utter nonsense.

Oh, I wasn't aware you were able to see into the future to know what jobs would be available then.
That must be a nice gift.

100 years ago they were just getting off the ground, literally.
Look at how many jobs the aviation industry provides now, not to mention the ease of travel.
Or what about the movies, they said that'd never take off, now look at the movie industry now. The Hobbit is said to bring my country an estimated $1billion dollars in tourist revenue.
TV, internet etc.. All revolutionized how we (people) live.
If I was born 200years ago I'd be a farmer. Born 100 years ago I'd still be a farmer (and then likely solider).
Born today and my options are far far far far greater then that of back then.

Who's to say what jobs will be available 50, 100 years from now?
Yah, obviously everyone in the future will sit on their ass and just think about shit. That will be their job... What a crock of shit!!!
Kind of a pointless job don't you think? Sorta fails to be qualified as a job by our standards today.

There is an old saying about monkeys pounding on typewriters will eventually produce a replica of Shakespeare.
The only problem is that eventually is nearly an infinite amount of time.

You don't need a crystal ball to extrapolate the general events of the near future.

So my post obviously flew straight by you.

I don't talk gay, I don't walk gay, it's like people don't even know I'm gay unless I'm blowing them.

"Inspired" then? It was good... just too good. Consider

"Ain't got no last words to say, yellow streak right up my spine. The gun in my mouth was real and the taste blew my mind."

"We see you cry. We turn your head. Then we slap your face. We see you try. We see you fail. Some things never change."
