What if Kurzweil doesn't make it?
What if all the switches get stuck on destroy?
When the shuttle goes, we won't take it
When the final counter-measures are deployed
All we'll have is all this time

WANTS! Not only a nice looking house castle, but it's someplace I'd like to live (although the nearly $6000 property taxes might be a problem). I wonder if I could crowd source it? (Grokked from Rae Carson)

And why pay the low-income people more when you can continue to fleece them for the small amounts they make. Usury, it's not just for pay-day loan companies anymore.

$5 logos? Man I can't tell if the jokes just write themselves or "smart ads" aren't very smart.
