    ^^ HOW!

    "When the couple divorced in 1990, Miss Kluge won an estimated $1 billion comprising cash, their mansion Albemarle House, and its grounds in Charlottesville, Virginia."

    HOW THE **** CAN YOU BANKRUPT YOURSELF IF YOU HAVE $1BILLION! HOW THE **** IS THAT POSSIBLE!

    Probably because she's a greedy *****. I imagine she stopped worked, bought some huge house, paid servants loads to literally do everything for her; when you have that sort of money its very easy to become a lazy c(unt).
    Yeah but even so, unless Gordon Brown was her account; as Cracked pointed out, there is no way you can lose that much...

    If I had $1billion I could live off that for the rest of my life - buy everything I want, have a personal chef and I still wouldn't use it all up... I would ensure that some of it is invested to give me a long term income and develop a portfolio for the kids.

    I reckon she could have racked it up eventually. A big house, probably a ton of cars and gave some to family. Plus she probably had her own chef, maids, servants, butlers, a guy that answers the door, 24 security man (over 20 years those salaries would rack up a hell of a lot of money). I'm tempted to say she probably gave some to charity but she doesn't seem the type.

    She is clearly a moron that natural selection should have taken out years ago.

    Silver fish. Usually associated with issues of damp in older houses. There's not much you can do except change the environmental conditions of the area and in older housing that's not the easiest thing to do either.

    I really like this quote by Martin Niemöller

    First they came for the communists,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

    Then they came for the trade unionists,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews,
    and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

    Then they came for me
    and there was no one left to speak out for me.

    Really, you've never heard it?

    I really like it, sums up the dangers of authoritarianism but also apathy, my two least favourite political things.

    I'm pretty sure I hadn't heard it until today.
    I think it's quite poignant

    Nah we get some big flies - we have various large trees near our house, so when we open the windows, they always come for a visit - why they want to die in our house is beyond me... they are never healthy, they are always on their last legs... I don't get it... they treat our house like the graveyard... *******s

    When I lived in Mauritius, apart from cockroaches and flying cockroaches we had ants who were fast and pretty effective.
    If you dropped a piece of food and left it there for more than 2 or 3 minutes they would appear out of nowhere and start a trail of ants back to their nest. Swarming with them.

    It was interesting watching them move back and forth in neat lines, breaking off bits of the food and carrying it back.

    I guess that's what you call an own goal.

    Typical councils, always moving the goalposts
