    I had a $2 lunch today and plan to get more $2 lunches. Everytime HR sends out email telling us there is lunch talk I will quickly register even if I am not interested in the topic coz they provide free lunch.

    Only if you can afford to lose billions, can you claim to be not affected by recession.
