I was blessed with some stimulus the other day…Submitted by BEROGU on Fri, 12/07/2012 - 14:18
My laptop was stolen, but fret not! This is a blessing in disguise. Thanks to this, I was forced to buy a new laptop; a brand new laptop, unlike that (1 year) old piece of junk! Thank god, or rather, thank the thief, for this wonderful blessing!
Forget about the fact that I had all my documents and photos in it (stupid me, I did not back up my stuff in an external hard drive or in Dropbox), but thanks to this wonderful event, I have now learned an invaluable lesson! Imagine how much more efficient I will now be with my brand new computer, kind of like Japan after WWII when they had all their old, smelly factories bombed to the ground, which allowed them to gain a competitive advantage over those old, smelly American factories!
And think about all the good I did by stimulating the economy. I spent a few hundred dollars in Best Buy, rather than spending it on things I actually needed. The fact that this happened, saved me from selfishly seeking my own self-interest. I finally know how to End This Depression Now! If every one of you steals one laptop, perhaps we can stimulate the economy out of this depression!
We will get credit flowing through those of us that cannot afford to pay in a single installment. Retail sales will increase and consequently manufacturing (although who produces anything in the US anymore?). And once people start buying new laptop, let´s all steal another laptop and repeat this cycle until the US has full employment!
Maybe even the government can chip in with some stimulus spending to make it easier to buy laptops. I am so excited about this, I can´t wait for my new laptop to get stolen as well!
