So, Rachel, what you do in America?
2.
I'm an Economics professor.
3.
Oh, very impressive.
4.
Econ professor, eh?
5.
Wow, you must be very smart, good for you.
6.
Let me get this straight.
7.
You both went to the same school,
8.
yet someone came back with a degree that's useful.
9.
And the other one came back as Asian Ellen.

1.
Dad fired you, man.
2.
No, he said it was just gonna take a little longer.
3.
But he said that to be nice.
4.
What I think he meant to say was that he wished that Mom gave birth to a can opener,

because at least then it would be useful.

Please, Boyle, your only value was you had a doppleganger,

I can still be useful without Bill!

1.
Here's a romper I wore to the Streamys.
2.
I actually didn't come here after the Streamys, so I don't know how it ended up here.
3.

1.
And so the question is why wouldn't evolution just make it so that I, now in my early 60s,
2.
can't just keep going to 200/300?
3.
And the answer is there's no reason for it.
4.
Because after I've brought my own offspring into reproductive age
5.
and then they've brought their offspring into reproductive age,
6.
I'm really of no use anymore.
7.
I can serve a useful purpose as a parent, of course, bringing my genes up,
8.
and then useful purpose as a grandparent to help my offspring bring their offspring up to reproductive age.
9.
But beyond that, really, there's no sense in pouring any more resources into great, great, great, great, great grandparents
10.
because the genes in the little infant are already gonna be well taken care of.

Thanks, mate.
