a fine read indeed.
thanks for sharing Troy

and I can only remember what I can as a child).

The student stops to perform the cost-benefit equations he’s been taught and, knowing the workings of the market’s invisible hand never fail, gets down, chows down and collects.

The continue their walk. The student, however, finding it difficult to focus on the benefit to his wallet because of certain other aesthetic and therefore unpriceable costs, spots another pile of doo. “Tell you what, Prof. If you eat that, I’ll give you $20,000 bucks.”

The Professor stops to perform the cost-benefit equations himself. Because they’re the exact same thing he taught to the student, he arrives at the exact same conclusion. So he gets down, performs the labor and collects his fee. They walk on.

But the student — you know how students are — he can’t stop thinking about it. Finally: “Listen. We’ve both spent $20,000 but each of us still has the same as we started with. We’ve both eaten ****, but neither of us is any better off.”

“That’s where you’re wrong,” the Professor replies. “You see, we’ve just increased the GNP by $40,000!”
THe prof must have been a Keynesian.

My wife said "Fix that gutter downspout TODAY!"

So I invited the boys over. One brought his welder the others brought beer.

Took us about 4 hours, mostly for the beer, but we got the downspout fixed.

Wife is still speechless... I ‘m certain not for much longer though.

Hoyt, ‘‘malware’’ is a boat joke or serious

The link works fine for me . .

Serious. My computer identified the link as containing malware. No joke.

I see, Hoyt you're right

The ‘‘Maybe’’ link leads to the ‘‘Road signs - the funny and hilarious...’’ thread on this forrum.

The link in post #8 over there leads to malware.
PS - the site where the picture in post #8 is hosted is contaminated.
I'll flag that post for the Moderator to remove the link in that post.

Thanks,
Angel

Thanks - the link and hotlinked image in post#8 in the "‘Road signs - the funny and hilarious" thread has now been removed due to the malware warning on that site. Thanks.
