Or get mad at yourself. Or your boss. Or über-capitalist/pseudo-republic conjoined-twin oppressors.

Fun Fact: The Scythians used the scalps of their enemies as tickets to sporting events, particularly horsemanship and archery contests. Some enterprising Scythians would hoard scalps to be sold to those who wanted to get into the events at the last minute after they were sold out. These late-comers’ scalps were sold for a much higher price than that for which they were originally purchased. This is where we get the term to gyp, or Jew someone, into paying too much money for a scalp.
