Consider the Koala Bear. The Koala Bear lives on a diet of Eucalyptus Leaves, This meas that the Bears flesh tastes too bitter for any predator to eat. Eucalyptus leaves, although nutritious are very low in energy, meaning the Koala has to conserve energy through lots of sleep- which it does safely in the boughs of the Eucalypyus Tree unafraid of being eaten.
The Koala Bear spends 15 hours a day sleeping, 5 hours a day eating, leaving 4 hours to copulate and raise young (the rasing of young consisting of teaching them to eat leaves, sleep, and screw)
I see that here in the UK they want to raise the retirement age to 69, the reason? people are apparently living longer, well, working is not living. I have decided to take early retirement in protest. So last thursday I handed in my notice to quit, finnishing in March. Now some people think that retiring at 31 is a bit premature, but what the hey I can do the things I enjoy, some of which will bring me in some revenue. At least I'll be alive
I am looking forward to writing my occupation down on forms, and telling it to people when asked. Retired!
The following is documentation of my tardiness to work on friday. My supervisor requests documentation for any tardiness or absence. This usually consists of one or two lines, no complete sentences required, blah blah blah... Its kind of important to mention that my supervisor has the most dry piece-of-toast personality and she and I pretty much hate each other.
I, personally, think I am brilliant, clever, and have excellent writting skills. Let's all say a prayer that she doesn't think its a good excuse to send me to the unemployement office. :)
I was just looking at my payslips and i realised that i'm now taking home less than i was 2 years ago. I havent had a payrise for 3 years, and that includes one to keep us up with inflation, so therefore have probably actually had the equivelant of a £750 - £900 per year pay decrease which is actually far worse than they make out. Maybe i should start pushing this more......
