Re: The Coming Economic Collapse

If I can purloin a bit of logic from CFB (or Alfred E. Neuman, or Bruno and Boots for the Canadians), why worry about the big crash? If it doesn't come, you can relax and enjoy your early retirement in style as life goes on, and if it does come then you can relax and enjoy the barbecued bear meat. Why worry?

Picture of Greg's frugality is the paper towels that he saws (yes, uses a saw) in half before putting on the paper towel holdler:



Gee, I am pretty frugal but I would never do such a silly thing, I got all my paper towel supplies from the office. I still have a year supply left.

Tell him to use a very sharp fish fillet knife instead of a saw.* The thinness of the blade makes the cutting easy, and you don't get a lot of flakes.

Actually, they'd only have 5/6 of a roll of paper towels (1/3 from Al and 1/2 from Greg). I'll stick with the 1.0 rolls myself. I don't want my wife to shoot me for being so cheap!

Great idea. I don't like the flakes from the saw.
