That is, excepting those who hit 100 on the dot as I probably do. The government must do something about this social injustice. For starters, they could make assortative mating illegal. It's all about Equality. All Americans must be at 100 (except our Government Masters, who are always the Smartest People in the World in the same way that the North Korean leaders are).
That came up because I did not know that household helpers make so much money these days. I do not think that a good butler, lady's maid, or estate manager would have a below-average IQ. These can be complex tasks which require juggling many topics. Who remembers the butler from Upstairs, Downstairs? He was good, the realistic adult in the family, the central role. And what about Jeeves?
OK, well perhaps a scullery maid would not need an average IQ but nobody in America has a scullery maid. In America, even the immigrant dishwashers have big ambitions, and rightly so.
There were two firsts for the year over the weekend: we fired up the Official Weekend Pundit Woodstove and we had our first snowfall that actually covered the grass. As to the first, BeezleBub felt it was cool enough...
