Guess they had no television back then, right?

OldFatGuy: I can't even remember how many first cousins I have, but I had more than one of "those uncles". I had one uncle that would slide me actual copies of Playboy itself when I visited. LOL
Ah, a venerable right of passage for the male of the specie. I think I learned about those particular anatomical delights the other way - via naked tribal folks in the pages of National Geographic. :)

16 "blood" aunts and uncles, and 32 aunts and uncles considering all were married.
I rarely meet somone with a bigger family than I, though I suppose large families were more common a couple generations ago. My mother had nine siblings, my father three (both are one sibling less today). With some 30-odd first cousins, most people that ask about my family gape in amazement.

Yeah, it's pretty amazing. I think my sister and I (the only two children these two parents from big families had, kinda funny in a way) once tried to count all of our first cousins, and we got into the 50's IIRC. To be honest, I don't even know most of them anymore, and never really knew a lot of them. I have no idea what the actual number is now.

The number of aunts and uncles is lower though. My mother has only two remaining siblings, and while all 8 of my father's siblings are still alive despite he no longer being here, four are now divorced/widowed (so I think technically their ex's are no longer aunts and uncles).

But yeah, we used to have to rent a really big restaurant (the whole thing) for our annual family reunion back in the day. Those events would number above 100 because of friends and extended family. Sometimes family members were/are complete strangers.

OldFatGuy: Okay, now that I took an emotional dump on the forums (sorry) the only thing to do is to give away some games for putting up with said dump....
Hey, I was thinking about cheering you up a little by a nice gift. Then I thought about The Cat Lady... and then thought that maybe it's not the right moment for this one...

Yes, for the most part it is... that's why I wasn't sure about it.

I'd suggest Zombies. Fun as hell, and the whole game is blowing away officious assholes and drones of the system. :)

Somehow it looks... well, not so fitting in the situation :)
But if it would bring smile upon our Old Fat Friend, sure, why not? :)
I haven't cost a wooden penny. Also Stooner didn't win what the hell is this stuff trying to be..

Really? I would think annihilating paperwork zombies would be pretty cathartic, seeing as it's the faceless bureaucracy he is facing off against. :)

My smiley and humble face never failed me in dealings with bureaucrats :) And to keep this face, I need to convince myself that they are my friends, out there to help me :)
And most of them are normal people. Like corporate employees (that is, like myself :))

Botulism extract is a much simpler way to keep a smile affixed. ;)

Nicotine and caffeine are enough for me ;)
