I received this last night from a suspicious source. Anyone know who it is?

Is it me, or does everyone of pensionable age think like this?


A little over 20 years ago I bought a used car and in the boot I found a bag of assorted cable-ties, including a sealed 100 pack of heavy duty ones.

The heavy duty ones were especially useful and over the years I used them to secure loads of things, a couple here, half a dozen there, until yesterday when, halfway through a job, they ran out.

New ones cost £5 for 20 or £15 for 100.

If I buy the £5 pack and die before 5 years have elapsed, I will have made a saving, same with pack two, but if I make 11 years I'm screwed.

What to do.... What to do....

Yeah, I get that, but it affects me in different ways. I still like a bet, but I'm reluctant to do "season-long" bets, I prefer to do short-term stuff, you know, just in case. I broke the rule last year & had a big horse racing bet with a 9 month gestation & I got a bonus, as I won twice - the bet came in, (God bless Chompy) & I survived to see it paid. Always an upside, see?

Ha, this is my job.  Need an age to calc it for you, but pretty sure you get the 100 pack well into your 70s.  Non zero somebody makes use of them after you have gone, so the extra unlikely to be wasted.

Also have to factor in the added expense of driving to the shop for more if I run out mid-job, although that can be negated by cycling to the shop, which also has the added bonus of improving my chances of living longer.

Someone using them after I've gone, yes, good point.

I'm 65 kick up the arse away from 65 BTW.

Think you have 20 years left on average.  Cycling to the shop could make it longer.  Think 1 box of 100 should be fine, 2 is a discussion.

I get annoyed when what appeared to be a series turns out to be a series of series with no indication when it will end or even when the next episodes will air. I also get rather miffed that I won't find out how the world ends.

iplayer has for years inserted unwanted trailers that can be stopped by pressing a "skip trailer" button. Now they have introduced a "restart program" button. Unfortunately years of pressing the "skip trailer" button have Pavlov's dogged me, so I'm now pressing the "restart program" button as soon as I see it. bastards

Two great gripes there David, especially the endless series one.

I finally convinced Mrs Red that she will never find out how Eastenders ends.

I think if I could no longer take part in life, I would be happy to spend eternity sitting at a computer, monitoring humanity's progress
