The positive side of the recession

Round the corner from me, was a shop which sold 'living angel consultations', amongst other disgusting lies. I sincerely hope that its' owner was a conscious charlatan, separating fools from their money. That's much better than really believing this stuff.

While I don't want proper workers to lose their jobs, recessions are useful in that they strip away decadent and frivolous nonsense: expect dog-grooming services to decline. First amongst the casualties has been the Living Angel shop - The Dark Place's average IQ rises slightly higher.

£45 is £10 higher than the average visiting lecturer - with a PhD - earns per hour.
