It's Not Even Inflation . . .
A Christian friend of mine recently told me she wishes that we could nuke all the Muslims so there would be world peace or something. Being me, I naturally replied that if it came to that, I hope the Christians and Jews went with them.
I think she may have been just kidding, though.
Cigarette prices have risen again. I may actually be forced to smoke less. Which is a good thing. Isn't it? No, it fucking isn't. If I ever quit smoking, it should be of my own free will, not because I was forced to do so. The cigarette prices in Singapore are fucking ridiculous. No wonder people are flocking over the causeway to get cigarettes. No wonder the rest of the world is laughing at us for banning chewing gum.
This is getting too draconian for me. Rather than letting foreign talent take my place here, I think I'm going to go to some other country and be the foreign talent. Yes, much as I love the rest of Singapore, I'm afraid I cannot abide a place where the fags are so ridiculously expensive. Also, the weather fucking sucks. Also, if I ever have children and they happen to be male, I don't want them to get chewed up by that monstrously inefficient and poorly run organisation they'd be obliged to temporarily serve with. I'm going to miss Singaporean chicks though. Just when they're starting to grow brains, too. Then again, the smart ones are probably already making tracks elsewhere. Anyway, I'm definitely getting sick of all this coddling.
I should probably go take over Canada, since my least insignificant rival is currently residing there. Hey, Pieter! If you're reading this, are cigarettes expensive there? 20 sticks cost at least CAD$7.20 in Singapore.
