Tiger Wood, Would you?

It's a basic principle of Ludwig von Mises that no matter how much your rational action satisfies your immediate urges, it is within the nature of the human animal that further dissatisfaction with your improved situation will arise again, sooner or later, to drive you into yet more action.

It is this impulse which drove us out of the trees, which pushed us out of the cave, which blew us across the oceans in primitive wooden sailing boats, and which rocketed us towards the Moon in a tin can, and which will probably drive us first to Mars, then to the Moons of Jupiter, and then onwards towards Alpha Centauri.

There is no fighting this dissatisfaction and this urge to action; the best you can do is to manage it. This urge to satisfy dissatisfaction is what makes us human in the first place, rather than remaining much closer relatives of the Bonobo chimpanzee.

Thus, it's no good earning an unlimited salary and marrying an impossibly pretty wife. Sooner or later, you are going to become dissatisfied.

Now you can either combat this dissatisfaction with hobbies, such as golf, or just go with it. But if your main occupation is golf, then what are you going to adopt as a hobby?

Unfortunately I think the answer may lie in the photograph above.

What a terrible shame.

But although Ms Uchitel is not the prettiest lady in the world, nor the most curvaceous, you can certainly see that whatever 'IT' is, she certainly seems to have a lot of 'IT'. Very very dangerous.

Bad luck, chap. I hope your wife forgives you.

That's certainly some photo. Is it real, or has it been retouched? ;-)

How can you doubt the authenticity of the happiness this family is enjoying?
