Friday's Food for Thought - 2/1/08

Today we are premiering the first of what we hope will be a regular feature here at Hobson's Buffet: Friday's Food for Thought. Each Friday, we will post an interesting or entertaining quote, a news story of the week (in the interest of being entertaining, they will probably mostly come from Reuters' Oddly Enough section) and a video. It will just be a small feature to try and further our goal of being interesting, and as we continue to post them, hopefully they will develop based on reader feedback. If there's something else you would find interesting, like a poll, a weekly photo, or anything else, let us know in the comment section.

News Story: For the mature woman who has everything: a boy toy
Are you a middle-aged with a lot of money and a need to be "loved"? If so, have we got something for you! Jeremy Abelson, a New York City entrepreneur, is organizing a special speed-dating event in New York specifically catered to wealthy older women looking for younger men. The women involved must be at least 35 years old and either earn $500,000 a year or have more than $4 million dollars in liquid or entrusted assets or divorce settlements. Ableson is putting on the event after a similar one last year in which the roles were reversed, with elderly rich men looking for younger women. The thing that gets me about this is that some people actually take it seriously. One of the women participating, a fashion designer, said, "Younger men expect an older woman to be more accomplished. They are looking for you because you are intelligent." Or maybe it's that $500,000 a year.

Ninja Parade Slips Through Town Unnoticed Once Again

Ninjas have to be the stealthiest humanitarians known to man. Not only do they host parades for local towns, but they also pass out candy! They're just like shriners, but minus the small cars and plus the katanas!
