I'm not sure what this means. Anyway, what's the status of our marriage, Lisa? Are we still married? I haven't been paying attention.

If you're not having sex, you're probably still married. :grumpy:

I don't have any idea if we are. If you recall, I was the last one to find out we were married. I don't mind, I just need an update now and then.

A far more important issue is that 107-year olds are discriminated against.

The computer has the presumption to regard their birthdays as less valid than others.

This culture of youth terror towards the elderly must be stopped at once.

The discrimination against 254-year-old Americans born from Sep 3 to Sep 13 easily eclipses that. It's like all of those folks were wiped completely off the slate of history. You can't even find dead 254-year-old Americans born on those dates.

I detect an unwholesome Amero-centrism in your criticism, BobG.
