We have already established, to our complete satisfaction, that you have a
hard life. Our Sniff-O-Mat Online "Dat-A-Probe" has, while you have
been reading this, been investigating not only your computer's files, but also
your keystroke rate, your heart beat, and, thanks to the latest Phosph-O-Mone

    on playing at full volume, well, it drive you nuts, okay?

  • You think this weather's fine but, hell, you wouldn't complain if we got
    a cool patch.

  • You don't give a damn about the eclipse.

  • You don't know exactly where you put it but it's around here somewhere.
