Deux-ex-machina

Although relating to economics, I think that Ms Norma Manna Blum and some others here might enjoy the historical references in the article: Scroll down to Things that make you go hmmm...

Tom:
Are you suggesting that there are participants here who DONT enjoy (or make connection with) historical references?
Or who are only here for the one-liners?
Or to add "me too, me too?"
Forum forfend!

Skepticism:
" Norma, you poor sad lonely alcoholic. You entire life is devoted to interrupting other people's posts on this forum, regardless of the topic, to tell them what's wrong with them. The irony is, here you are doing it again, with this very post.
Your fanciful card games, movie sojourns and exciting overseas trips, that all take place within the four walls of an aged care retirement home, do not suggest your own children offered you the care, I gave my parents."
