The Past

I sometimes wonder why I wasn't born in the 19th century. I would have been great as some sort of idle member of the British gentry. I could have lived off of investments worry-free and spent the bulk of my time pillaging archaeological treasures from other countries. The Tromphlin wing of the British Museum, anyone? Although I probably would have died of cholera before the age of 30, so maybe it's a good thing that I'm here and now. I'll just have to do my pillaging somewhere else.

Two words, Jeff: Flushing Toilets.

And XBOX, Wii, MST3K, Burger King, and James Bond Films.

In fact, the ONLY reason that you'd want to live in the 19th century is so you could live in a world WITHOUT Tyler Perry movies.
