79. I guess then it is best if the addicts you speak of
mug your neighbors to get what they want?
I keep seeing your posts that describe your life as an example of one who 'contributes to society'. You seem to use yourself as the standard for all others. I could do the same, of course. In my world, those who reach age 25 without having earned a few hundred thousand and achieved a world wide reputation are not 'contributing to society'.
Just so you know, to me, you might not be on benefits, but you are on your own wee trip, about you, and 'laboring' for money. Your only contribution to society is in staying out of the way of those who have things to do.
So you look at another, and at yourself, and say 'they do less'. I look at you, then at myself, and I asy 'you do less'. I have some really rich pals, they look at me and say 'do you even pay taxes' or 'what happened to all your money'?
It is relative, kiddo, and only the grace of the gods and the odds differentiates you from me from the wino from the billionaire.
