This article from the Boston Globe was written by a guy I've known since about 1965, my brother's best friend. My brother is one of the guys in the article doing the revisiting. See if you can guess which one is my brother. :haha:

I think it's hilarious. And yes, I know all three of these guys, and I know exactly where they are throughout the whole article.

English isn't much of a language for swearing. When I studied Ancient Greek I was delighted to discover a single word - Rhaphanidosthai - which translates roughly as "Be thou thrust up the fundament with a radish for adultery."

OMG,

Is this guy for real? Treating scum like this is understandable but edging them on is [???] .

Russian Mafia, Romanian, Triads, Yakusi or even Nigerian nitwits is not worth it.

I suppose this is one case of Internet masturbation might end up in a terminal hard on - in a coffin!

What I don't understand is how the scammer can stick with it in the long game. At best it is a waste of time, at worst they're exposing themselves to law enforcement. Maybe they're just not very proffessional in the scamming bussiness.

I don't see why not, Labour are still blaming Thatcher for stuff that happened 2 decades ago.

It would seem the phrase 'sorry, we were in charge then and we made mistakes' is totally incapable of passing any politician's lips :furious:

But it is so silly when the financial crisis was world wide. It just back-fires and makes them look idiotic. Now Thatcher.........that's a different kettle of fish.

I don't think GO will try to explain anything. He will just gloss over it as if there isn't an elephant in the chamber.

Now THAT would explain the facial expression, if he's got an elephant in his chamber.

Well, actually, Sweden's former minister of finance, Anders Borg, once admitted (and wasn't even pressured to) that they prematurely took away compulsory unemployment insurance. I mean, yeah, it has never happened before or since as far as I can remember so perhaps it was out of the ordinary.

Nordic folks are weird, though. After those Icelandic banks went bust, the government indemnified private savers, not the companies, and sent the bankers to jail. I mean, it's almost like the politicians work for the people and not the corporations?

Then again, we vote for the politicians we like the most, not those that isn't the ones we like the least.

I'm an American and I have no idea what you're talking about.
"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

"To doubt everything or to believe everything are two equally convenient solutions; both dispense with the necessity of reflection." - Henri Poincaré

Actually, I'm not sure that's what happens here, unless I've misunderstood the double negative.

I always end up voting for the one that might keep the other one from winning, because wherever I live I never seem to have a good MP or the right party. My current MP was one of the worst expenses culprits. However, I am now not going to vote on that basis any more at all since I hate all of them. I might even vote Monster Raving Looney who I probably actually agree with more than anyone else. :facewall: (that's assuming the whole of Western democracy, which we've tried so hard to sell elsewhere, doesn't collapse first).
