Your question was "how long does it take for [credit card companies] to give up and quit trying to get a few cents on the dollar?" They give up when they can find a collection agency willing to buy the debt; the collection agency is giving them their "few cents on the dollar". The status of the money you owe is that you still owe it, but to the collection agency which bought the debt, not to the company that sold it. When do collection agencies stop trying to collect? Not in your lifetime. I got a call last month from an agency trying to collect a debt owed by my brother, who's been dead for 3 years now.

Nope, Satan is one of the most attractive (people? creatures?) you'll ever meet. Even in the Garden, he took the form of a most beautiful serpent. He uses his good looks to attract people into doing evil.

I don't believe the system, itself, is the problem; the problem - as always - is the people who use it irresponsibly or even abuse it for their own personal purposes.
Didn't he have problems with his probate, too?
Wouldn't it be easier to just fly everyone to, say, Australia? With the entire planet's population there, it could make the planet wobble enough to avoid the asteroid, right? Or maybe we could get everyone to participate in a planet-wide wave. That might work, too.
HEY! I saw that movie!
No (says the voice of James Earl Jones - or is it Lou Rawls?), it's the asteriods. We're calling you.
“How stupid if we got hit because we weren’t looking?” former astronaut Ed Lu, who runs a non-profit that cheers for asteroid collisions, told Wired Magazine. So is he suggesting that getting hit even though we were looking would be smarter or that getting hit BECAUSE we were looking would be better or that looking would prevent asteriods from hitting us?
Why? Nobody forced these women to have sex with him, they did it of their own fool will.

"...someone needs to draw a line in the sand and stop the nonsense" No, a line in the sand is too ephemeral; we need something more steadfast - like a line cut in concrete.
