    Ernest, Don't you sleep? What time is it in Paris? 6... 7 o'clock in the morning? Sleep is for workers?
    Sleeping is for lazy people .
    [​IMG] HAHA... Brilliant Ernest response. Well done, Ernest...
    I think we've found the new Yogi Berra . [​IMG]

    I wish (I was on the French unemployment system).  Maybe then I could afford 12 Lanvin suits and a Rolex.  Actually, I do atmospheric modelling with computers, so am in front of one about 10-12 hours a day.  Lots of time to check the forum, which is in a little window most of the time.

    putting aside the guffaw-inducing qualities of the French welfare state, I find the "classic" Rollie -- oyster perpetual, gold and stainless with the bubble-top -- to be tacky in the extreme.

    On the other hand, Sotheby's had a superb early '60s Explorer in stainless steel on offer about six months ago for one of their timepiece auctions. I think it went for about $2500, something really reasonable, not showy, but understated and nice. It was the first Rolex I've ever considered buying.

    I nominate this statement for the Irony Hall of Fame. We really need to get ernest on a reality television show. Â It would be pure ratings gold.

    It would do better than the Simple LIfe, I guarantee it. Â There could even be a crossover. Â Anyone know someone we could pitch a pilot to?
    I was thinking about a variation on the "mommy swap" shows. Â Ernest swaps families with a gangbanger from South Central. Â Hilarity ensues when ernest tries out his newly discovered street slang on the locals.

    It's easy, in Europe a wellfare payment is on average about 6.000 USD a month. In France it's even a bit higher than average.

    [​IMG] That "salary" probably puts you in the upper 25% of wage earners in the U.S.

    That comment would be the least of your worries. I can assure you of that. If we happen to be LA at the same time one special evening, we will go to the Dragonfly (a hiphop style club - you will easily pass the dress code) together. You can do the Smurf; and I am going to have a ball down at the precinct headquarters in the aftermath of you complimenting some other guy's Smurf technique.

    Cool it with the language.  

    Striking a blow for miserly Frenchmen everywhere.
