Every now and then I run across a web page that makes me laugh. This link is from a science fiction site--io9.com--that covers all things science fiction with an eye towards actual future trends. They seem to be out of their league with this article talking about ways to prepare for the "next great depression."
I'm not sure that I actually laughed while reading the article, but I did allow myself to read the posts afterwards. Some are down right hilarious.
- DarkPlaces writes, "thank you for posting this. I will be attaching guns to my vehicle, growing a mohawk, and strapping a fireaxe to my back in TRUE SciFi depressionistic dystopian style."

- One posted recipe from Belabras is
1 Chocolate Bar of your choice.
2 large, fluffy marshmellows. The fluffier the better.
2 graham crackers
Heat the marshmellows over an open flame until partially melted inside. Sandwich between the graham crackers along with the chocolate bar. Think squirrelly thoughts and enjoy.
The economy may not be headed for the best of times, but somehow I don't think it's going to be as bad as this article makes out.
Unless the author helps plan our way through. Then we could be in serious trouble.
