They will be, that's why I noted the rich will be enjoying them. As demand increases, wages will go up, and the good ones will al be working for the rich old farts and earning mucho dinero.

Top 5% will be about right. The other 95% will be the ones resting in their shit-soaked beds.

Might be a good time for me to start advertising my DIY Exit Bag again.

I've changed my mind about getting a cleaner in!

https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/elderly-woman-allegedly-stabbed-by-her-cleaner-in-sydney-s-inner-west-20190103-p50pbh.html

A friend in a town further up the coast told me she was getting scared of the cleaner sent to her to help out after she came home from hospital. She said the woman was very rude and bossy and complained that my pal wasn't doing enough of her own housework!

She's spending most of the day in her wheelchair after foot and ankle surgery and spinal injury problems! (past car accident damage getting worse with age.) If she could do it herself she wouldn't need a cleaner, and a community nurse to wash and dress her!

I thought she was exaggerating at first, but it appears not as I've heard that Cuz's mum in law has been having problems with hers too. That's been sorted! But old people on their own are really vulnerable to 'predatory' types and plain bullies. And they seem to be the only ones willing to take on those jobs.

Have you considered marrying an aging gay gentleman that likes to clean and has a nice cash flow chart?

What a weird fucking list. 
Ask not what is the problem but, rather, where is the lesion.

Antarctica? WTF?? Goddamnit, Antarctica isn't a fucking country. What the hell are these fools on about really?
You can lead 'em to knowledge, but you can't make 'em think.

They left OZ out!  We've lost a few Americans on hiking trips and surfing lately, maybe they haven't noticed yet?? Confused

Insane list.

What possible reason is there for Yanks to exercise increased caution in UK/Belgium, etc?

Utter nonsense. Did Trump write that?

Exercise common sense and look out for suspicious behavior, as you would in Antarctica.
