Mr. X ---> I spent a year dead for tax purposes. It worked so well that I'm going to do it again.

Or maybe interstellar communication is just really hard. smiley - rolleyes

I've learned that communication can be hard even when two people are within earshot pretty much all the time. smiley - erm

Today I learned that a barnacle's a crustacean, and not related to the limpet (a mollusc). Apparently this took Darwin a long time to work out too.


But what can I do with this new-found knowledge?

Caiman raptor elk - Yes, but what if the box is REALLY big?

When saying "Blistering Barnacles!" you can rest assured that you can't be mistaken. "Blistering Limpets!" definitely has a different taste to it. Now you know why...

Well, if you're going to learn anything about barnacles, you should learn about their ginormous penises.

I figures, then, that Barnacle Bill would be a sailor.

You could always go to the trinnacle stones. 50% extra. No charge applies.

I'm suspicious of that. I'll buy a cynical.

Why pay for cynical if you can get it for free?

Might you be thinking of cenacle? It was the room where the last Supper was held. Nowadays it's the name of a Catholic study or discussion group.

Around 1:00 AM today, I learned that hurling a coccyx against the edge of a bath-tub, bouncing a head twice off of the hard floor, and also somehow banging hell out of rib all add up to a wonderful ride in an ambulance and meeting some great people at our local hospital emergency room.

I have had so many injuries over the past 50 years, these wouldn't detract much of anything. X-rays show very few bones that have not been broken or scarred in my person.

Congestive heart failure is the primary cause - and how it affects everything. So since I am forcibly retired from the work-force - - - Just another 'circumstance'.
