Post That's Bad, That's good.
Lots of good and bad today.

"A Friend borrowed and then totaled my minivan last week"
"Oooh, that's bad!"
"No, that's good! Nobody got hurt except the guardrail and the front of the vehicle!"
"Oh, that IS good!"
"No, that's bad. They had no money to pay the towing service so I had to shell out $325 to get my own van back."
"Oh, that IS bad!"
"Well, no that's good! You see when I got the minivan back, I discovered it still ran and drove!"
"Oh well, that is good!"
"Ah, no, that's bad... because when I took it into the shop, they told me the front of the frame got ripped off so it's unrepairable."
"Ah, that IS bad!"
"No, that's good!"
"Really? How so?"
"Well I tell you. I just got a fistful of dollar bills for selling that thing, and now I need a replacement. Something more fun than a minivan!"
"Ah, that IS good!"
"Well, no, that's bad - because it really was just a fistful of dollars and I put 'em in the gas tank at four bucks a gallon, and what I had left was enough to cover the accountant who did my taxes."
"Shucks man, that IS bad!"
"You'd think so, but it really is good!"
"Really? How so?"
"Because the tax guy just told me I got a huge refund coming!!"
"Ah!! That's great!"
"Ah, well, no... not really"
"Now hold on a minute! What's so bad about gettin' money back from the IRS?"
"Oh nothing! The bad part is that it's already spent on college tuition for my boy!"
"Well now, that's GOOD news!"
"Yeah, it WOULD be good news, only we was fixin' to send him up there to that campus in that minivan! Now we got to drive 24 hours there and back again to get him there!"
"Aw, that is bad!"
"No Roy, that's good!"
"Really? How so!"
"Cause when we drop him off, we'll finally have some quiet and no more subwoofers blarin' until 12 AM every night!"
"Hey!!! That is good!"
"Darn tootin' it's good!" :)

That'd be bad news if the house got attacked by a nocturnal, man-eating pterodactyl who gets scared only by loud noises.
Though it would be good, since it only eats men.
Though it'd be bad 'cuz that would issue and anti-discrimination campaign.
Though it'd be good because women would get more rights.
Though it'd be bad 'cuz nocturnal pterodactyl would be forced to eat women as well.

And I thought I had cruddy days. Sorry to hear that Tycho!

Stark optimism - At least you don't have to drive a minivan anymore.

Hey I just realized... you can scrap it and get some money from it! I mean it's only a minivan, even though it IS a Chevy van...
(I love Chevys)

What's bad is that I only got $600 for the minivan, but what's good about that, is it was $100 more than the junkyard'd give me for it! What's bad is that it went with a brand-new (three weeks's old) $100 battery that I couldn't get loose: THe radiator support was form-fitted to the battery by the collision. I couldn't even get my $15 core charge :( However what's good about it was that the minivan started instantly for the guy that bought it, hence the extra hundred bucks. What's bad is that now, whenever we need to go somewhere that includes a friend for one of our kids, we need to take two cars. What's good is that we still have three cars!

So life's not that bad :)

...and just in time for income tax season, I present you this little bit from Archie Campbell :
