here’s the 13 top earning dead folk from the past 12 months. always said death is a great career move. can’t wait to die and start earning the big bucks myself. of course, anything i made dead would be more than i’m making alive. and my expenditures would be lower.

this list is from forbes.com – i try not to use forbes.com because they’re greedy bastards (surprise surprise) – their site takes forever to load cuz i suspect they’re loading my computer with their cookies and ads of mammon.

another site i refuse to go to is rollingstone.com – they’re just as greedy as forbes and take even longer to load.  last time i went there, they refused to let me leave… they disabled my back key. i had to end my session to get away from them. went back in several times over several days to make sure that’s what they were doing. what a sickening selfish low-scum scam from what once was a beacon of hope. wrote them a complaint but they deigned not to answer. that was two years ago. refuse to go back and see if they’ve changed their policy. i am a loyal friend. i am a loyal enemy. i don’t take kindly to self important arrogant flux denying me choice. (just went back to check – they let me out, so this is an old gripe).
