2. Oy! That's legit!
Especially with that new lawwhateverthingie in place that says annoying people online is a no-no. :crazy:

You should see the t-shirt I have that outlines a list of laws of things to do (or, rather, not do) unless you want to go to jail... half of which I've probably said in the Lounge already before those posts got locked... :rofl:

3. I learned how to make annoying people go away....
SECRET FORMULA OF WORDS

Big word + little word + big word + little word + big word + medium word

EXAMPLE

Person: What are you doing?
Me: Lamenting the infeasability of utopian anarchy.
Person: *goes away*

that Joe Lieberman helped Al and Tipper Gore and Susan Baker arrange the Senate hearings into nasty rock music back in 1985.

6. How about the one I just can't quite learn?
the one about you get what you expect so you better expect good stuff or else you'll get the bad stuff you've been expecting. Don't yell at me for being slow either, I wouldn't expect that. :shrug: :rofl:

9. hibernating bears wake up and DO NOT laugh when tazered.
In fact, they aren't in a good mood at all, even if you and all your friends are laughing your asses off as you tazer it.

Man, it's hard to type with just the one hand.

10. The reason flamingos are pink is because they eat shrimp.
Flamingos are actually WHITE when they are born, then turn pink as they grow older....and eat shrimp.


My third grader passed along this little factoid this morning. She learned it in her science class.


Who knew? :shrug:


:hi:
