Male Logic

Male Logic

Woman:
Do you drink beer?
Man: Yes
Woman:
How many beers a day?
Man:
Usually about 3
Woman:
How much do you pay per beer?
Man: $5.00 which includes a tip
(This is where it gets scary !)
Woman:
And how long have you been drinking?
Man:
About 20 years, I suppose
Woman:
So a beer costs $5 and you have 3 beers a day which puts your spending each month at $450. In one year, it would be approximately $5400 …correct?
Man:
Correct
Woman:
If in 1 year you spend $5400, not accounting for inflation, the past
20 years puts your spending at $108,000, correct?
Man:
Correct
Woman:
Do you know that if you didn’t drink so much beer, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting
for compound interest for the past 20 years, you could have now bought a Ferrari?
Man:
Do you drink beer?
Woman:
No
Man:
Where’s your Ferrari?

I'm on My Third Car

My first, a 1963 VW Bug, I bought in 1973 from my uncle, for $300.

I sold it at a profit in 1987, to buy #2, a 1977 Honda Accord, for $1,000, also from a family member. ("Profit" -- more correctly, for more than I paid denominated in dollars, not adjusted for inflation, and disregarding maintenance.)

I sold the Accord in 2009 for $2,000 to a Japanese car collector after entering it in an antique car show. Yes, even with a blown headgasket, there was someone who wanted to buy the car he wanted when he was 16.

#3 was acquired in 2009 for for $0, from a family-member, a 1987 Honda Prelude. I've had two people knock on my door asking if I want to sell it, already. It's almost as fun to drive as the VW (the Bug could go full speed over raised railroad tracks or speed bumps, bumpety-bumpety, which the Prelude can't).

All those car-payments I never made were used as down-payments on real estate. The price of a new car is equal to a down-payment on a house. Inflation, fixed interest rates, the interest deduction, Proposition 13, the real estate bubble, have all been good to me.

If it weren't for real estate and Milton Friedman's Econ text book in 1973, I would be really, really scared about not having Social Security, now. But I got over that fear back in 1973 when I first leaned it was doomed, taking action to make and preserve wealth, knowing I can't count on the government to come through.

That's my female logic.

Pay attention to some good advice while you're young.

Women

Yes, finding one that loves money but is terrible at math isn't necessarily a God-send.

"Oh my God, you have one hundred pennies!"

There's a great injustice we do to women

Gentlemen, it is a great injustice we do to women when we claim that they can't keep a secret! For, they sure can, it's just they need to team together to do so.

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

Hmmm. let me think.

OK, got it.

Miami News 1954

To the editor of Miami Daily News:

If you cannot refrain from drinking, start a saloon in your own home. Be the only customer and you will not have to buy a license. Give your wife $12 to buy a gallon of whiskey. There are 123 shots in a gallon. Buy all your drinks from your wife at 40 cents a shot. In four days, when the bottle is gone, your wife will have $39.20 to put in the bank, and $12 to start in business again. If you live 10 years and continue to buy all your booze from your wife, and then die, your wife will have $35,750.40 on deposit, enough to bury you respectfully, bring up your children, buy a house, marry a decent guy, and forget that she ever knew you.

Hear, O Israel: YHUH our God YHUH one. And thou shalt love YHUH thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might.

my girlfriend pointed out

my girlfriend pointed out that if you just add a zero to the end of each of those numbers, it is still pretty accurate today:

shot was $0.40, today $4.00
gallon of whiskey was $12, today $120 (roughly, fifth of whiskey ~$20)
final expenses money was $35,750, today $357,500 (that should cover all those items mentioned).

Women logic....smart cookies :]

Some Women Are Good At Counting Beers Stoney...

The prettier they are, the more potentially dangerous to your soul..

Of course their are some good women out there that want a real man to correct their naughtiness.

There is alot you need to learn about women. However, you need to make mistakes by finding out for yourself of course how difficult it is to live with a woman who isn't alway so sweet and nice..

Caution: Handle with care!

lol..

Not true! There are pretty ones out there that are not

dangerous at all. They're just not in yo face.

Whoa!

My best girlfriends WERE great beer guzzlers..

Life is full of dangers, as

Life is full of dangers, as for my Soul it is in God's hands, we all die, and I can't think of a sweeter way than "Death By True Love"

as the old song of my Irish fore bearers goes:

Some take delight in fishing and the fowling
Others take delight in carriage gently a-rollin'
Ah, but I take delight in the juice of the barley,
Courting pretty women in the mountains of Killarney
Musha ring dumma do damma da, Whack fol de daddy o,
Whack fol de daddy o,
There's whiskey in the jar

One of the strange things that happens in an inflationary...

environment is that while prices are rising quickly, consumer spending will also rise, as people try to get rid of their rapidly depreciating currencies. This increased spending is renamed 'consumer confidence' and becomes another part of the deception. Yet another discrepancy which shows why economics is a theory not a science.

The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.
