Attempts to resolve the Quandary:


When I heard that one of my weak-minded acquaintances had inherited a large sum of money, it did not require too much mantic genius on my part to predict, accurately as it turned out, that he would sink in a porcine lifestyle in which a new form of cocooned lethargy exterminated any desire in him to exert himself in any worthy direction.

(by Sami)



Thanks to my innate mantic powers I foretell that, when you eventually arouse yourself from hours of supine lethargy in front of the TV, you will indulge in the customary binge of porcine excess rather than think for a moment of dealing with the backyard vermin that I have been asking you for months to exterminate.
