I have no idea what the hell I was thinking when I said this. ;-) :-) At least
with pay-it-forward, you get the benefit of a favor before you have to perform
them for someone else. Social security is like reverse-polish pay-it-forward:
"do favors for three people and then, trust, us, we'll do *1* for you." The only
problem being that, for us GenXers and younger, there won't *be* enough dollars
for us to ever collect on that favor.
