The economy...it's worse than divorce. Iv'e lost half my net worth, and I still have my wife!

Pah-DUMPH

I went downtown to ask for a loan.

The man said, why ask here? This is a gas station, we don't have money to lend right now. He said:

"Try the bakery."

You mean you don't want your country socialized for such a small amount of money? You'd sing a different tune if you was a Bank of America executive. If you don't want it, please forward to me so I can buy more rice and bananas for my porridge. :)

It's no joke that $13 USD will buy a lot of rice and nanners in Guangzhou! :) But wait about a year, mebbe two, and I doubt it will buy much at all.
