    Just think how great the markets would do if Ireland asked for 50 trillion, they'd soar. And if they just up & defaulted, then nobody would need social security `cuz everybody's 401k and IRAs would triple! Man, if going broke is the path to riches then I've been doing it all wrong all these years.

    I gotta try this at the bank. "Hey Mr. Loan Officer, I blew through every dime I had `cuz I can't manage to spend less than I make. It's gotten to the point that my credit card companies have cut me off. From observing the financial markets, I see that this is not the bad thing that the unenlightened (not to mention unwashed) masses might believe. Instead, it is a sign of real financial strength! And I know you want a piece of this, so how about a loan? Say, 100 large to start?"
