    Holy crap! 4.5 MILLION??? Wow! I have a friend who lives in Cali. Her parents bought a house a long time ago and the value has now quadrupled or something. She told me that they want to move somewhere else because they would be extremely rich anywhere else.

    When I first moved with my parents (long, long time ago), they got the apartment for maybe $60,000. Now they say that the price (of what the apartment is worth) has tripled. It's tough to find low-cost housing on private property when you live in NYC.

    Oh and that 4.5 million dollar house isnt the lowest its been. I think that one of the most expensive houses was up the hill from me. I THINK it was asking for about 5.2 - 5.3 million, but didn't sell for nearly that much. I live in a VERY VERY VERRRRYYY well-off town (BTW, I don't live exactly in San Jose, just near enough) Our school systems are one the highest rated in the state and all of the houses are sooo nice. We have some seriously rich people here. Its sad, kinda, because nearly every kid at my school has like a Mercedes or a Porsche or a Mustang. And these are high school kids!!! yep
    Anyone got any jokes?

    My Drug Problem

    I had a drug problem when I was young:

    I was drug to church on Sunday morning.
    I was drug to church for wedding and funerals.
    I was drug to family reunions no matter the weather.
    I was drug to the bus stop to go to school every weekday.
    I was drug by my ears when I was disrespectful to adults and teachers.
    I was also drug to the woodshed when I disobeyed my parents.

    Those drugs are still in my veins; and they affect my behavior in everything I do, say, and think. They are stronger than cocaine, crack, or heroin, and if today's children had this kind of drug problem, America might be a better place.

    An economist gives advice to a suicidal man:

    Dear Economist,

    I do not know whom to turn to. A few months ago I discovered that my wife was having an affair with my boss. I lost both wife and job in quick succession. My wife also took the dog. As I cannot afford my mortgage repayments, I am about to lose my house as well. Betrayed and homeless, I feel very depressed. I have become so desperate as to consider taking my own life. Please help.

    -- A.W., Dulwich

    Dear A.W.,

    Don't do anything rash. You are on the verge of making a terrible mistake, albeit one often made by naive practitioners of cost- benefit analysis.

    Presumably you are contemplating suicide for the usual reason: a net-present-value calculation suggests that the future benefits of living are outweighed by the future costs. You will have considered the low probability that you will ever love again, the disadvantages of your poor credit record, and the difficulty of securing a new job, especially if applying from no fixed abode. While this cost-benefit analysis may appear to be a rational approach, it neglects advances in the field of real option theory.

    Many decisions are irreversible but can be postponed to gather new information. The quintessential example is that of exercising a stock option, which allows the purchase of a share at a particular price. It would seem to a naive investor that an option to buy a share for £5 should be exercised immediately the market price of the share climbs above that level. But this is a mistake: the share may climb much further, or may fall, so while the option remains open there is a value to holding on to it while more information comes in.

    Real option theory extends the idea beyond financial investments and into the real world. Apparently rational irreversible decisions to buy houses, build factories, or, indeed, to take one's own life, should often be postponed to gather more information. Your decision to kill yourself would deny you the opportunity to take advantage of any change of fortunes.

    The latest economic theory therefore strongly recommends that you postpone your suicide indefinitely. It may be hard to believe, but there is every chance that you will again find true love and a satisfying job.

    This comes under the heading of "it's funny because it's true"...

    From the "Losers of the week" segment in the Arizona Republic:

    Britney Spears

    If anyone can use a burqua makeover now it's Britney "Look-if-you-want-me-to-be-some -kind-of-sex-thing-that's-not-me" Spears, who told Esquire magazine she's not resorting to using innuendo to sell records. When it was explained to her what the word innuendo means, Spears replied, "Oh ,yeah. That. Oh, I do that all the time. I thought you just meant oral sex."
    "Look, you love me, and I love you. Maybe in a different time, a different place, this would work out. But we both know that only one of us is leaving this room alive, and I'm the one holding the flame thrower." - Film Fakers
