Okay give me a minute to get some coffee in me. Plus my wife keeps distracting me unnecessarily. I was just sitting down at the breakfast table when from the living room she exclaimed "Look at that bikini! She might as well be naked! Hon, come look at this!". Groan. Shuffle in there. "Look at that" (pretty dang good looking well endowed woman in some jewel bikini that many strippers wouldnt feel comfortable in) "Its all airbrush!". "Can I look at the airbrush a little bit longer?" "Mmmm hmmm...<grimace>"

So now I need a shot of hitler in a kayak with a pancake on his head, and a pirate patched nutsack. Looking at a babe in a jeweled bikini.

This is going to be a bit ugly.

Re: Another article on our inability to save

The stuff you find when you do an internet search.

A guy with a site who thinks a lot of pancakes look like hitler.

A guy with a running dialog on the relative merits of telling hitler he was like hitler on an online forum and whether or not that invokes godwins law.

And this book appears to lend some credence to the idea, although pancakes arent specifically mentioned, there could very well be a kayak in the pirate fleet. In fact, I'd consider it a 91.6% likelihood...
