    Hmm, I've heard of "May you live in interesting times". It's an old Chinese proverb, curse actually.

    "It is often argued that the word interesting is meant to be a synonym for turbulent or dangerous, while others suggest that no such similarity is necessary for the statement to be imposing. However, both of these theories miss the essential irony of the saying in light of the value Confucianism places on stability and constancy."

    Personally, I never find Presidential elections exciting times. It is perpetually the same old rehashed promises which they hope we forget were part and parcel of the oprevious elections.
