Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Matthew 5:11

Indeed we call blessed those who have persevered. You have heard of the perseverance of Job, and you have seen the purpose of the Lord, because “the Lord is compassionate and merciful. James 5:11

Looks like, for now, this place is full of old codgers.

No high tech?


There was only 16 squadrons of RAF fighters that used 100 octane during the BoB.
The Fw190A could not fly with the outer cannon removed.
There was no Fw190A-8s flying with the JGs in 1945.

RETIRED... my day, wake up, go to the gym, come home shower... play video games, wife comes home at 5, eat dinner, more gaming or TV at night... when I get bored I go to the gun range, go to lunch with friends on my motorcycle, or go fly my drone... all that said, starting to get bored, after 6 months of retirement... might get me a part time. wink

I've been retired for almost seven years, and I know the feeling. However, since a I bought a new, to me, house last year, I am no longer bored. Now there aren't enough hours in the day. biggrin

None of the above - education.

Lesson learned: Include more options when creating a poll. smile

Except "student" can NOT be on that list. Unless you are being paid a living wage to take classes, that is.

Even retirees are usually collecting pensions and/or social security and/or investment income, so while they are not employed per se they are still earning money.

Being a student is not a job nor a profession, it's what one does before/in between/after working in one, and requires paying to be able to do it (notwithstanding grants/assistance/auditing). It may be your current activity, but does the statement "I'm a student for a living" make sense?

My job category is law enforcement - but it's not exactly the first thing that comes to people's minds.
