with the cock talk.. this must be a new skool thing with flaccid measurements, always used to be erect measurements quoted

a bit like manufacturers quoting BHP at the flywheel figures as there more impressive than WHP (wheel horsepower)

What you mean they aren't always supposed to be flaccid???

That explains the disappointed look on my gf's face

I prefer a qualitive analysis rather than a quantative one.

What I mean is a persons pre-tax income does not provide a particularly clear idea of their wealth.

100K a year sounds like an awful lot of money, but if I earned that and my wife earned nothing, we would be comparatively less wealthy than a family where each parent earned £40K.

This is why official statistics tend to concentrate on household income.

Plus ... it's not all about money. Materialism isn't the meaning of life

Strangely, if you could do that I am sure you would be bored stupid. And pretty sure it wouldn't be "all you wanted".

The more I have struck of my to do/achieve list the less interesting that list is. Some of the most rewarding things can't be bought off the shelf.

Carlostheplotagain

All I'll tell you is this - I earn the net result of the following formula:

(What people spend on food & drink) - (VAT @ 17.5% on certain parts) - (%GP margin depending on sale type) - (rent) - (rates) - (overheads) - (staff costs) - (tax) + (VAT rebate) / (2) - (reinvestment %) = (roughly what my company makes)

Which basically means, I'm not telling. Although, I'll make more money if you come down and stuff your face silly and drink like a fish (preferably, you can buy a 1961 bottle of Petrus at £9500 which will help me out a bit)...


*** Hey Viv - how about the UK5 meet in London next time with food at mine?!! I'll do everyone a deal... buy one Petrus, get second half price.. hahahaha...!


PS.. Carlos, just for your information, most people take offense at others asking how much they earn... it's a very private thing which I imagine most people are uncomfortable talking about.. just my £0.02

Hey, I just realized: I make almost twice as much in US$ than I do in Euro!!! that's so cool!

I don't know why people want a big dick. I've got a big dick and it's not nice.

Once word got round in school, all I could get were pervy girls - the kind that took their own virginity on their bed post. And I couldn't get rid of them.

And then when I did get to date a nice girl, they freaked out and ran as soon as I dropped my pants - no matter how gentle I said I was going to be.

Even now, I can't wear speedos when I go swimming (which I rarely do) I try to find pants with crotch room but it's still a bit of a strain. When people notice, they look at you like you're a freak - which is probably not far off the truth - or they think I'm stuffing.

And let me tell you: Girls are all high and mighty about men looking at their breasts but the first thing they look at is your crotch. They're just better at hiding it.

Seriously, it sucks having a big dick. No deep throats... No ramming it in to the hilt... All it's good for is porn and that's just not my thing. I'd trade mine for a normal one in a heartbeat.

I quite fancy coming down to London for a meal at your restaurant, Tony.

If it means organising a meet to do that, then so be it!

I better start saving some cash to put towards a starter then, eh Tony?!

You are a very materialistic young man.

I have voted, but you'll have to guess whch one is mine.

Suffice to say, I have enough money to realise that money isn't that important.

The more money you have the more choices you have.

It should be respected, but also spent to enjoy life.

I would give all my money away if i knew my family would live a long healthy happy life. (well as long as i could have just one fast car)
