Random fact: our house here (which is about 50 years old, 1 story, and moderately large - but not huge or very ornate) is worth more than half a million dollars, up from $65k parents paid 30 years ago. That always boggles my mind.
Also, on a totally unrelated note, I seem to be accumulating quite a harem in my Temp tab of my ICQ contact list (where I put all the people who spontaneously add me to their contact list with no prior contact). 11 girls and counting (and those are the ones that aren't porn bots - I've broken half a dozen porn bots this week alone with my first reply); apparently 'Justin' is a popular name girls from countries all over the planet search for to find people to chat with (one of them said that's how she found me). *shakes head* Heck, at least half of them have never even messaged me.
