Which is the Greatest Depression between the old one or this new one?

Have more people committed suicide this time than last time?

Etcetera
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

What are you referring to? I am in great depression over the continuing:

"I don't know,"
"We weren't aware of that,"
"Not to my knowledge,"
"I had no knowledge of that,"
"We had no knowledge of anything"
"Moi?"
"yada yada yada"

How did we come to this point in our history where no one knows anything?

If you refer to the economic great depression, I wasn't alive during the thirties, but from what I've seen of it, I'm not sure we even know what a great depression is. I know a man who ate grass during the great depresssion, and I don't think any of us can fathom that. I think there are probably more PTSD American Veterans commiting suicide than victims of a cyclic economic slide. But I'm no expert and I'm certain I will be corrected.
What if the Hokey Pokey really IS what it's all about? Smile

My neighbor rang my doorbell at 2:30 a.m. this morning, can you believe that, 2:30 a.m.!? Lucky for him I was still up playing my drums.

Britain's recent economic performance is the worst since records began in the pre-Victorian era, experts said today, apart from the two immediate post-war slumps.

Al, I have learned to pretty much ignore 99% of what Tommy says, and not click on the links he posts. Half the stuff he says doesn't even make sense, and makes even less sense when you see the links he refers to.

I used to click on Tommy's links, but they were far too wacky for me to understand. Now I just talk to him directly because he really is funny.

It's a small symbol used in the Hebrew alphabet to diferentiate (sp) two letters that would otherwise be similar. Sort of like the tail of a "Q" makes it different from an "O."
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"

Perhaps you should seek professional help if you are depressed Tommy??

Some facts: the odds of being killed at the hands of another human are at an all time low. The odds dying from a disease or illness is at an all time low. The odds of dying from starvation is at an all time low.

In all reality, the world has never been a better place to live in all of human history. You need a new perspective or something.
