We just know how to get stuff done faster, hence leaving more time for holidays.....yeah, right. In fact you are correct. We are lazier. On the other hand, who needs to be stressing out constantly? Is there some goal we must reach? Just got that one life to live, you know.
One of my favorite Simpson's quotes goes something like: "Lisa, if you don't like the way the company is treating you, you don't go on strike. You just do everything really half-assed like everyone else."
Hey! Are you implying we do things half-assed? :evil: :)

Lisa: [gasps] Thank you, Mr. President.
Clinton: No, thank you, Lisa, for teaching kids everywhere a valuable lesson: If things don't go your way, just keep complaining until your dreams come true.
Marge: That's a pretty lousy lesson.
Clinton: Hey, I'm a pretty lousy president.

Leave it to Grammy to take a shot at the Democrats, no matter what the topic of the thread. :)
