Yeah, buy Wellesley (35% equities), find a way to live off of the dividends, and fahgeddabout it.

Sorry, watched the sopranos last night and read six unclemicks posts this morning.

Its hypnotic.

I watched the first two seasons of the Sopranos, mainly because it was on right after "Sex and the City"...

After that, I was hoping they'd all get snuffed...

Except for the Dr... :P

Sadly, I could actually see Tony as a travelling salesman.

Re: 100% SUCCESS RATE ON FIRECALC

I think it was a "what can we put into a couple of episodes to drag out the season while doing very little plotwise, get people to talk about it, and then announce we're tacking another season on next year to reward our loyal viewers!" thing.

Remember, these guys dont take commercial advertising money and they dont get paid by the episode. They get paid by the month. The longer they can keep people paying their $12 fees, the better.

In my case, they're about accurate. As soon as the sopranos season is over, i'm cancelling hbo. All the other shows that I used to watch and liked are over. Not interested much in their new ones, although a lot of people seem to like them. Looks to me like the smart series people left HBO and went to FX (rescue me, nip/tuck, starved, the shield, etc).
