Will These Blokes Ever Learn?

What is it with these old men? Obviously I see it routinely here, 97 year olds with 18 year old girlfriends and other zimmer frame wielding freak shows.

But what is it with these really rich fellas? Mrs. Merton springs to mind here, 'So Debbie, what attracted you to millionaire Paul Daniels?'

Is the action just so good it overrides the embarrassment factor? Do they pop Viagra (blue) and Diltiazem xr (purple) at the same time? Is this safe?

Money in this world is the great leveller.... which is probably why I'm being hammered on all sides as my money supply is rapidly diminishing and a solicitor wants a HUGE wedge just to write a nasty letter to the gits who screwed me on the chippy.

If he had no money I doubt he'd be dating women 1/4 his age...

It just looks like Pattaya, walking round hand in hand with their prostitutes. :huh:

How much is the solicitor charging, hourly rate?

I know of a young girl who is boffing a 65 year old on the sly.

Funnily enough he is a millionaire with a helicopter and all of the usual millionaire knick-knacks, she's skint with a child who she's not very good at looking after.

He's also a mate of her parents who we reckon are partially complicit in all this due to the reasons named above, it's also relatively common knowledge that he trys (and mostly succeeds) in knobbing anything that moves.

Grotesque.

Funny old carry on.

Cogs summed the whole thing up, once you're detached from that 'thing', life begins. He's right too.

£120, £100, £180/hr . . . what?

I watched that Devil's Advocate film with Pacino and Keanu Reeves a while back. The Pacino lawyer/satan character quotes some hourly rate, that's supposed to be mind-boggling huge for the time, I guess.

Anyway, convert from dollars to pounds and it's about half what it costs now from a good, but far from the most expensive, firm in this country. Not sure how old that film is but, there's been a helluva a lot of inflation in legal fees since then.

I guess, if they can clear a few grand doing a bit of bog-standard conveyancing they're not going to want to do anything trickier without a lot more wedge. That and prime office rents going through the roof, perhaps.

I remember some jobs we were paying £1200 an hour for the barrister. A mate used Mike Mansfield for his divorce many years back . . . he rents now and drives a 1996 Mondeo.

Be careful when suggesting high-profile barristers have heavy coke habits.

Pretty simple really, it's simple instincts that have evolved to this state and kept us alive for thousands of years.

Man wants to spread his seed in the youngest, sexually mature females around. For survival of his genes.

Woman wants to be inseminated by the guy who can best provide for her (while pregnant and vulnerable) and the kids. In today's terms, that means money. Physical prowess used to be more highly valued, and still is (because instincts are hard to deny). Also, a guy's confidence is a good indicator to a woman that he can organise and get things done, perhaps on a par with money.

Think of those rich guys who have no confidence with women at all. The value of his money is enough to outweight the devaluing of his worth due to his lack of self-confidence. Sad but true.

I see a lot of this type in the banking industry. I'm not talking about rich *****ers in corporate finance but those on "middle incomes" of arounbd 50/60/70k. Loaded to the hilt on their expensive mortgage, the wife just keeps spending and he never looks happy. I have a few friends stuck in this rut.

Now, if any woman HPCer fancies my excellent, super strength seed, I am ready and waiting.

On the other hand.......

Met my step-daughter for a meal after work earlier this week.

So - grizzly old f@rt walks into pub to be greeted with a hug and kiss from a stunning girl in her 20's, dressed to kill (she'd just been to an interview.)

Young men in the pub clearly found this difficult to cope with. I could see the drooling d1cks jumping to the wrong conclusion. They assumed she was out of their league. Only way their minds could cope was to assume I was a rich old git and she was a prostitute.

If the lad she quite liked the look of had had the gumption...... but he didn't. Its a funny old world, have piccies of rich old guys in celebrity mags drained the ambition out of folk?

Not the pictures. The divorce bill and a sense of perspective.
