    Careful that relationship could spin out of control!

      Haha!

      Right now I'm just happy if my dryer spins at all.

      It only works when it feels like doing so. It's only 5 and has been replaced once and repaired twice.

      Bye-bye Kenmore, next time I'm trying another brand.

        I think using animals for food is an ethical thing to do, but we've got to do it right. We've got to give those animals a decent life and we've got to give them a painless death. We owe the animal respect.

              No, It actually tickles them. In fact it tickles them so much that there is a real fear that they will drown from laughing. So only the mollusks capable of keeping their lips sealed survive. The only thing that can stop the tickle is a coating of nacre. Or Barry Manilow songs. Sometimes they laugh so hard that they spit the nuclei out. Or they try not to laugh and it ends up lodged in their noses. That's how you get baroque shapes. When pearl farmers make a panel for the mollusks they always include one real bore of a mollusk in order to assure that the rest of the mollusks don't start having too much fun.
