Subj:     Our Tax System Explained in Terms of Beer
          From: tom on 10/8/2008 

 Using actual percentages, the impact of a tax cut, and the 
 public reaction that  everyone should be able to understand. 

 Suppose that every day, ten men go out for beer and the bill 
 for all ten comes to $100.  If they paid their bill the way 
 we pay our taxes, it would go something like this: 

 The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing. 
 The fifth would pay $1. 
 The sixth would pay $3. 
 The seventh would pay $7. 
 The eighth would pay $12. 
 The ninth would pay $18. 
 The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59. 

 So, that's what they decided to do.  The ten men drank in 
 the bar every day and seemed quite happy with the arrangement, 
 until one day, the owner threw them a curve. "Since you are 
 all such good customers," he said, "I'm going to reduce the 
 cost of your daily beer by $20.  "Drinks for the ten now cost 
 just $80. 

 The group still wanted to pay their bill the way we pay our 
 taxes, so the first four men were unaffected.  They would 
 still drink for free.  But what about the other six men - 
 the paying customers? How could they divide the $20 wind- 
 fall so that everyone would get his 'fair share?' 

 They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33.  But if 
 they subtracted that from everybody's share, then the 
 fifth man and the sixth man would each end up being paid 
 to drink his beer.  So, the bar owner suggested that it 
 would be fair to reduce each man's bill by roughly the 
 same amount, and he proceeded to work out the amounts 
 each should pay. 

 And so - 

 The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing 
    (100% savings). 
 The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings). 
 The seventh now pay $5 instead of $7 (28%savings). 
 The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings). 
 The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 ( 22% savings). 
 The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings). 

 Each of the six was better off than before.  And the 
 first four continued to drink for free.  But once 
 outside the restaurant, the men began to compare 
 their savings. 

 "I only got a dollar out of the $20," declared the 
 sixth man. He pointed to the tenth man," but he got 

 "Yeah, that's right," exclaimed the fifth man. "I 
 only saved a dollar, too.  It's unfair that he got 
 ten times more than I!" 

 "That's true!!" shouted the seventh man.  "Why should 
 he get $10 back when I got only two?  The wealthy get 
 all the breaks!" 

 "Wait a minute," yelled the first four men in unison. 
 "We didn't get anything at all.  The system exploits 
 the poor!" 

 The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up. 
 The next night the tenth man didn't show up for drinks, 
 so the nine sat down and had beers without him.  But 
 when it came time to pay the bill, they discovered 
 something important.  They didn't have enough money 
 between all of them for even half of the bill! 

 And that, boys and girls, journalists and college 
 professors, is how our tax system works.  The people 
 who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from 
 a tax reduction.  Tax them too much, attack them for 
 being wealthy, and they just may not show up anymore. 
 In fact, they might start drinking overseas where the 
 atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.

Subj:     Mood Ring
          From: KMACINTY on 10/10/2002 
      and From: edapsmas on 10/3/2008

 My husband, being unhappy with my mood swings, bought me 
 a mood ring the other day so he would be able to monitor 
 my moods.  We've discovered that when I'm in a good mood, 
 it turns green.  When I'm in a bad mood, it leaves a big 
 frickin' red mark on his forehead. 

 Maybe next time he'll buy me a diamond... the idiot!
