      Problem:

      Low cost method of lowering approx 312 million people of various sizes and shapes, (use Measure of Man, Henry Dreyfus) for averages, safely down a fiscal cliff.... Fiscal cliff, no numbers yet, so be conservative....

      Can we please have a slightly smaller 60 million version for the UK?

      I'm thinking a 10# test fishing line would do the trick. Just gotta convince enough liberals that it will hold them. Then eventually the pile at the bottom will provide plenty of padding for conservatives to survive the fall.

      Felix Baumgartner signature model golden parachutes will do quite nicely.

      We should be able to spool up a chinese factory to meet the demand in time.

      What cliff? It's a curb and the house will pass another interim solution because the ultra-conservative minority think they run things.
      Next chapter will hurt, but be blunted by prepartaion and reduced impact.
