    Lewis...wake up and sniff the coffee.

    "Ethnic hookers" as you call them are putting something positive into society by working their butt off...literally and are likely to bu a lottery ticket.

    People who phone The Samaritans are planning to end it all and therefore are not likely to buy lottery tickets.


    Seems fair to me :twisted:

    MiB,

    But if someone suicidal calls the samaritans and then changes their mind about ending it all, they may buy a lottery ticket in the future...

    The Samaritans should be self-funding. You decide not to top yourself, you (presumably) cheer up, you bung them a few quid. Sounds like the free market at work to me :D
     
  4. Now there's an idea. All telephone conversations with potential suicides should end with:

    " .. but of course, if you do kill yourself, could do you do us a favour and leave everything to the Samaritans? We really could do with the money."

  5. But of course, there's always the risk that the hitherto happy person who blows their last ten quid on a lottery ticket, hits the jackpot and subsequently loses the winning ticket will top themselves, having failed to find any telephonic solace from the now-defunct-through-lack-of-funding Samaritans....
     
  6. Maybe calls from suicidal males should be automatically re-routed to the hookers?

    Nothing like shagging to blot out other more trivial distractions and it would kill 2 birds with one stone.......
     
  7. Now that sounds like a plan!! :D :D
