"Antibacterial soap" is NOT redundant. "Soap" only refers to a substances ability to break surface tension.

If you are right-handed, you should be able to write fairly well with your left hand if you write backward while also writing normally with your right (like a mirror image). Now I want a lefty reversed MIDI keyboard.

I'd rather be hit by 100 guitar pick-sized pianos than by a piano-size guitar pick.


"For instance" is not proof.

LOL. Takes a little bit of practice. I learned to do it in 4th grade from a teacher who was INSANE about DaVinci who originated it (urban legend...just reporting my experience).

I've always wondered the same thing.

A reminder, kids, to register your products! By registering this microphone at the time of purchase I receive lifetime warranty on this mic. I just have to pay shipping to get it to them.

Yay!

I mean if they're going to be silly about it, why not go for it and finish the job: "This will be the last,final, endmost, concluding, lattermost, and ultimate call for Flight xxx departing for yyy."

I've always wondered what dire set of circumstances drove someone to eat rotting cabbage: Kimchi.

Okay, fine...I get it...you had a poor harvest in the fall, followed by a hard winter. Near the end of winter, you run out of decent food and have to go dig up food that's partially decomposed in order to survive. You do what you gotta do to survive. I get that part.

But to willingly eat it later, when things aren't so bad?

Really?

Strange dream- I went to get my haircut, usual place. When I got there the owner (Korean guy who usually cuts my hair) said it would be a long wait as they had a group of Australian visitors ahead of me; Markay, CowboyNQ and about 6 others were present. After waiting a while all of a sudden these guys along with all the Korean barbers start singing the Australian national anthem, a pretty good song I concocted in my dream or so it seemed at the time.

Anyway I was extremely agitated that they were adding to my wait time. Still haven't gotten over it. saber grin

Sorry, too many distractions to look at his stuff.

The jacket, for one. Good Lord.

The size and skin tone relationship between his hands and head - what is going on there? And you thought Trump had tiny hands - I'll bet this guy can fit his own fist in his mouth. You just don't see that every day. And does he wear gloves when he's at the beach?

I received prescription allergy eye drops, and the label directs me to "Instill one drop into both eyes...." I tried carefully placing one drop on the bridge of my nose, to no avail. Any thoughts? wink

Apologies Mark. But as you now know, Aussies and Koreans love a national anthem sing along when we get together. Thanks for writing it by the way, good tune - had "soul".

Subject change: Road train drivers literally carry a heavy responsibility to drive thoughtfully. I saw one nearly side swipe a driver of a small sedan yesterday in an effort to overtake where there simply wasn't room.

Ok, off to admire my new haircut..

'A Cluster F***' - Definition of: When enlisted men are sent to the front by a general or generals (or admirals?) that have earned their gold leaf clusters that they wear on their uniforms....(no skata ) ....now don't we all just feel a bit stupid (I did), most of the world thinks of an orgy scene of some sort, I found that a bit unpleasant, I have to good of an imagination for a Yankee! We can all relax now and breath a sigh of relief, it doesn't actually have to do with sex at all for the most part. . .

Actually a bit more serious if your even near a military front and in the service....live and learn, my friend told me who was in the Navy.

and there is also this, another common misnomer:
Can Opener Dyslexia . . . .

and finally there is this for no apparent reason other than this which got my octaves ringing a bit...I'm sure she can help beginners find middle C:
