    I'm bored of working. I've been working full time for the past 18 years and have 28 years ahead of me till I reach the state pension age. That isn't very appealing.

    I need to get rich quick.

    Do a small side business, I do it myself also. Not speculative enough to deplete me, but it somehow grow gradually, like an online shop.

    I was thinking more along the line of lottery tickets.

    Edit: I am only a bit serious about that.
    Starting a business is something I have toyed with over the years.

    Other than Mrs. Doubtfire, I don't think I liked him in anything. I have yet to see One Hour Photo, actually, and heard his performance in that was really good. He was definitely a talented guy, but I just don't think his comedy was often all that funny.

    Everyone has different tastes in comedy. You just gotta find what works for you.

    Not my kind of plan, actually my sister online business is huge, back then her biz income was larger than her husband-they already rich then it just escalated, they pretty much buying everything on cash, while now when Covid kicks in she pretty much provide the main income and hubby assist her in the business, the order decreased yes but far from shutting down, I gotta say that's a very nice and smart move.

    Off the top of my head I like (in no particular order) Brian Regan, Norm Macdonald, Steven Wright, Jim Gaffigan, Dave Chappelle, Rodney Dangerfield, and others.

    Rolling Stone had this terrible “article” (it was a list of the “50 greatest standups,” and listicles themselves are crap) that had some real stinkers on it. Garafolo? Bill Hicks? Wake me up when one of them tells a joke. Hicks was by far the least funny of all time.

    That would mean getting up early in the evening and working through the night. So....the best time to troll and play fast and loose with forum rules would be in your evening hours. That sounds like a plan. :D

    It is. She let us know that it would be a good idea to have Gal Gadot as an avatar again for when it was her birthday instead of Gal's and she posted the date, so I for one welcome our Hollywood action-star overlords.
