World Sex Ratios - Or Why You Should Go Long on Russian Bride Futures

Thanks to violence, drinking, and sex-based abortion the ratio of men to women varies quite a bit from country to country.

The United Arab Emirates is practically a sausage party with 275 men per 100 women while Djibouti is man-starved with only 80 men per 100 women. So morons make your vacation plans accordingly.


In terms of population China has the most unattached men in the world, and it's only going to get worse - there are currently 117 boys under 15 years old for every 100 girls there. Meanwhile Russia and many of the former Soviet republics are women-heavy.

So just based on demographics alone I foresee some bride arbitrage going on in the near future with a lot of matches like this:


Of course this may result in the dreaded ursa-dragon hybrid, so we must be wary.

Chunky Attention Whore Complains About Sarah Palin Seeking Attention
Well you might as well ride the horse that brought you to town in the first place:

Much of Sarah Palinís allure seems to fade by each passing talking point of Michele Bachmannís that goes viral. And with each passing day, Sarah Palin looks more and more like a confused woman who canít decide which way to go. The last thing our country needs right now is a president who canít make up her mind or make tough decisions. As Americans, we live in perilous times and what we need is real leadership. Republicans really have a chance to win the White House in 2012. We donít need to be distracted by Sarah Palinís attention-seeking antics anymore, unless of course she actually decides to stop flirting and finally make a move to announce her candidacy.

Well in their defense makeup and smiles apparently hadn't been invented yet.


To Our Very Best Pal _JOHN WAYNE_ (Or Occupant)
A letter from Dan Rowan and Dick Martin to John Wayne in August of 1973.

To Our Very Best Pal JOHN WAYNE (Or Occupant):
When Dick said to me "Say Dan, we should have JOHN WAYNE in our Hollywood Boys Glee Club", I couldn't have agreed more. I said "I couldn't agree more, Dick, because I have considered JOHN a marvelous performer since his (her) wonderful performance(s) in SINGING COWBOY, DONOVAN'S REEF, and BOYS IN THE BAND." (Note to secretary: If he (she) hasn't done anything lately, send version B on the cheap stationery.)

Old Money Rules That No Longer Apply (and Two That Still Do)

Squirreling away enough to cover three to six months of expenses in case of unemployment, a medical emergency, or other financial disaster is an important goalóbut it may not be enough. You've probably heard (or worse, witnessed) the horror stories of massive unemployment making it much harder to find a new job. The process can take well over six months; in fact, recent data shows the average length of unemployment has surged to an all-time high of 40.4 weeks.

...So how much should you save? Eight to twelve months might be the new three to six, but if that seems like an enormous goal, don't get disheartened. As before, just start saving as much as you can...but don't stop at the six month mark.

Welcome to the Obamaconomy.
