The tragedy of being old and lazy

It is a tragedy to become old and lazy in paradise. When one is old is already bad. Old and lazy!...tsk. tsk. In the past, being old, one can look forward to a well earned retirement. Today, one cannot afford to grow old and retire. One needs to work till death. And if one is old and lazy some more, no one is going to help you. Wake up lazy Singaporeans. But for those who cannot grow old, then it is a different story. They can continue to dismiss the old Singaporeans, especially the old and lazy ones, as useless rubbish. Can anyone recommend me on how to stay young forever?

Ask me nicely over an iced latte and I will share with you how to be old but young, lazy but useful.

Oops! sorry about the repetitive post. It's blogspot's fault. This piece of shitty software goes crazy sometime.

Hi Wally,

Any Sinkie that has not made it in his 40s is unlikely to do better in his 50s or 60s. And the trend is going to be worst when a big chunk of their income is going to be trapped in the property bubble.

But this could be a bonus if the bubble does not burst and keeps bloating.

It is not a tragedy for buggers like LKY, Nathan, Goh CT, Jayakumar, Wong KS, etc, to be old and lazy.

But it is our tragedy to keep paying these old and lazy buggers Millions of $$

My great grand father was old and lazy, and live to 85.
My father is also old and lazy, he is now 75, and happily retired for 15 years.

We are a family deep in tradition, thus these 2 persons was/is not a problem for our family.

Old people can be old and lazy if they have played their parts in bringing up their children with the correct mindset.

We can all be lazy if we can all work wise & smart, so that we can all be lazy for as long as we want.

Or we can all be fools and be slaved to $$$ and the government.

It was reported in Parliament that some of the old and lazy were sacked and replace by young and hardworking foreigners.

Those who are old and still want to be lazy at work, deserved to be sack. But it is something that we should feel sad but nothing to crow about.

Laziness is a great human tradition which transcends cultures.

The only people who don't want you to be lazy are those who wish to control you and make you their "beast of burden".

As a beach bum, I am an ex-spurt on laziness.

Everyone gets old -- no control on that. But you do have a choice to remain lazy and resist the urge or other people's "advice" to "be productive".

What are they talking about? Laziness is the highest form of productivity because it pays off instantly and requires little or no effort.

Can you top that, Mr Lim Swee Say? No? I didn't think so!

Happy New Year to you, Matilah.

Finally your comments are back. There's a long while that your comment was not seen. Have you been lazing around the beach too much?!

Matilah_Singapura said...

P.S. It is also important to get a loose definition of what "laziness" is. My loose definition is based on a positive stance: "choosing what you want to do instead of what someone else expects you to do". Usually that "someone else" has their interest at heart, not yours and therefore seeks to use guilt in telling you that you are "lazy" because your choice of activity doesn't conform with their plans for your life. i.e. they know what is good for you better than you do, and therefore claim some "authority" over you.

That being said, let's get back to "laziness" being more productive than "hard work" as defined by others:

E.G. If an attractive woman asked me to fondle her privates I would choose that activity and perform i.e. work my hardest and apply my best effort than some over-paid legal thief from the govt. telling me to do his idea of "work" and to be "productive".

By being lazy and concentrating 100% on my activity instead of his, I am infinitely more productive than what he or his over-paid bullshit overseas PhD colleagues can invent with their tax payer funded studies based on snake-oil: the spreadsheets, databases and nonsense economic modelling.

The question will always be: "Are you creating wealth for yourself?" If "yes", then you are productive.

OK, now I have to return to my lazy activity of engaging in activities of Biblically prohibited sexual activity.

See you in hell folks. I'll be surfing on that lake of fire!

Wally Buffet said...


I have the same idea of pleasurable,
productive laziness.

Fondling some bitch's private parts sure is productive laziness because it generates wealthy pleasure and that's all there is.

No rocket science or hard labour is required. Just tactile prowess and deft handwork.

You two make a perfect pair. May I join in to make it a trinity?: )

Wally Buffet said...


What do you think this is?

A gay fraternity?

Only straight, healthy, normal heteros allowed OK?

Matilah_Singapura said...

jaunty@ 407

Yes, summer on an Aust beach is awesome. Happy new year, may the tiger bring you good fortune.


If you want to make it a "trinity", then you have to be crucified. Don't worry after 3 days you will rise again and impress all your frindes :)

Funny things happening here.

Maybe because of a little too much of genetically altered food.

Many of the actors in Medicacorp are becoming effeminated and likes to act female, wear female make-ups and dressed as females. The trend seems to be catching on fast.

Are they trying to be funny? It's disgusting!

Wally Buffet said...


They have run out of ideas so acting effeminate is now cool. Those same old clowns never fail to give me a kick on my lazy old bones to switch off the telly.

Hey, I always look for "opportunity" when others are thinking "crisis".

The more men choose to act, like ah kwa's the less free-market competition for chicks, therefore the more chance for balding (but still happening) uncles like my goodself to "score" with the available females, who are evolutionarily wired for robust male companionship. Of course there are gay females too, but who cares? Many of them have heterosexual friends, sisters and mothers. Hey don't laugh at the fact I like some of the mum's -- who are cougars. "Lau swee good enough for me".

Older woman having sex with younger men are Cougars.

Older man having sex with youngest possible within the law, women are...... ? Chee Koh Peks.

Why do humans always like to have sex with younger ones?

To make themselves feel younger of course.

There Redbean, one of the secrets of staying young.

Try it. You'll love it.

> Why do humans always like to have sex with younger ones? <

Why evolution i.e. natural selection -- of course. You'll have to point your search engine to "evolutionary psychology" and read the opinion, but here's the gist:

The whole idea of sex being pleasurable is so that our (selfish) genes can replicate themselves generation to generation. (See "The Selfish Gene" Dawkins)

The genes "selfishness" is in-built and its purpose is to make sure it perpetuates by replicating itself. Through natural selection (over billions of years) the act of sex being pleasurable has been selected.

However humans can by-pass the genes' intent by preventing conception (and replication) by using contraception or selecting alternative orifices for sex -- the real "fun stuff". Use yur imagination :)

Why are the young preferred? For men: young women ==> fertility. Better chance for selfish gene to replicate. Thus young women tend to look more "attractive" to men.

For older women ===> security and virility. Young men -- usually strong are evaluated on the basis that they would be good carers for the mother and the young. Hence young men are perceived s "more attractive" to women.

But if you are old, bald and fat, you can still get chicks -- even though you don't have a knock-out chick magnet "personality".

Just be rich :)

redbean, this is a special prescription to stay young and not grow old. it has been proven effective for the last 50 years, serious.

Just join the current gahmen. not only can u not grow old, u can even get rid of those who has grown old, especially those who suffer from laziness. It is so effective that it is reported in the parliament by a Mr Ong AH, he can vouch for that.

Hey Bro. I disagree. For me at least. The damsel's fertility is the last thing on my mind before I giddyup. In fact, I most definitely doesn't want her to produce a clone of myself. Too much complication and loose ends.

Pssst.... You know why I like the younger ones? They can run the distance and take the hard knocks better.............

That's me. Having a name like "Buffet" sure open "doors".

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Yes Wally, it's the money that matters. Money is attractive, power is sexy.

I may be quite good looking and physically fit, no illnesses, but not attractive and sexy: )

I don't mind being old, fat, bald and rich...and very sexy.

I do agree with all the ideas you have introduced in your
post. They're really convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very brief for novices. May you please extend them a bit from next time? Thank you for the post.
