The Privileges That Fish Don't See
Here's a discussion of unacknowledged privileges.

I suppose it's evil of me to wish for a magic spell that would turn him into a black lesbian in a wheelchair.  Because that would probably be fatal.

Back in the 1980s I started my odd-jobs network on $25, while being female, having hepatitis, and not having a degree. It prospered. It helped others out of poverty, too. And then around 2005 it stopped. So I don't resent the guy who's writing about his success. I would just like to remind him that luck and timing still matter.

he'll turn into an old weak person eventually, no matter what else happens. we call them the "temporarily able-bodied" for a reason.

Well, no, not necessarily; some people do die young, either from accidents or from other causes.

at which point he would be unable to belabor anyone further with his notions. it's an extreme solution, i think, but you're right that it could happen :)

I chased the link back to wikipedia.
Somebody needs to put a spell on him to make him both ugly looking as well as FAT.
Your "magic spell that would turn him into a black lesbian in a wheelchair" is far and away to nice for the likes of him. People would feel sorry for him then! Nobody feels sorry for ugly or fat people.
I'd love to see what would happen if he attempted the same thing as an ugly fat boy!

Pretty always manages to get along somehow. What I want to know is how did he get food stamps when the lady who used to own and run high country gardens couldn't!!!
D--- this makes me angry.
