Also, how is why is the sky blue an ancient mystery?

I'd post a pot-kettle-black picture here, but we've all seen it before ;)

By the way, I'm right there in the middle of the unposted pic :D

I was watching it forever. It took 15 minutes for it to download before I got the joke (I'm on dial up). Boy, am I slow!

Not necessarily, but it's a judgement that could come from any angle I suppose.  The problem here is that we don't know if the person in question is just drunk or something else.  My guess would point to the something else.  So painting that in the same light as a legitimate and admitted drunk doesn't do the drunk any good at all.  Speaking strictly as a a drunk myself of course...

Dial up? Are you also from 1996? How're those free AOL disk treating you?

There's one born every minute. I see a hand full in here right now.

"I think there may be "ghost phenomenon" that may be still not fully understood or dismissed, but that doesn't make it spirits of the dead, anymore than "UFO" means "spaceship" or even "UFO" or "spaceship" is directly related to aliens, or anything else. There is way too much assumption and a baseless reliance on anecdotal lore, like when people assert this or that about the spirit world or the astral plane or Ouija board demons, or religion. I say 'says WHO?'" - Paranormalcy

I am drunk right now. :tu:

I live in a 'town' of 300 over an hour away from the nearest 'major centre' (a 'city' of 20,000).

Down side: No highspeed, no Chinese food, no public transit.

Plus side: No cops, no crime, no streetlights, no traffic, no pollution, no cell service. That, and apparently I'm 16 years younger than my chronological age! :)

I am however not drunk yet (but that's just a time-zone thing). I'll catch up.

P.S.: I am in fact communicating through a Dell Dimension 4100 on Internet Explorer 6. I'm a Luddite waiting for for the entire internet to tell me to 'bugger off'.

How's the future going by the way?

The future is amazing! We have all the things you want and all the things you don't want! Also, we've grown technologically enough that we have no use of simple programs like Internet Explorer and use the much superior Chrome and Firefox. Also, we all have AIDS.
