Not having a decent, regular income is exhausting. Every single month I've been running out of money, for so many months I'm not even sure how long it's been since I had a cushion in my checking account. (Never mind that I had to give up the emergency funds in a money market account sometime in 2007 or so, because I couldn't keep the minimum balance the bank required before it would charge fees.) I would contribute to the economy if someone would kindly contribute to my own, first, and hire me to do some work for them.
I believe that's how the system works. Having been out of it, for all intents and purposes, since 2006, I may be a little unclear on the concept.
In other news, scientists in England may have come up with data that throws out the theory that dark matter comprises a fifth of the universe, while researchers at CERN believe they've found neutrinos traveling faster than light.
At least science gets funding in some other countries.
