LOL. Thanks.

Cute. But more accurate would be:

"I can hardly wait to pick up Decker's parents posessions at 25 cents on the dollar post-Y2K."

You obviously nailed ol' Lisa. Too funny!

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary to add the integer 1, to the integer 99, the result I would say, and I have millions of computers to back-up my theories, and prove my facts, the result I would say is 00. <:)=

[Thanks, and I hope the tag lines warranted a few chuckles... and an ouch or two.]

Viewing women as sex objects in no way suggests that they should not be able to vote. I must admit, though, that to leap to such a conclusion is consistent with any of the arguments that you have ever presented, displaying the same peculiar logic.

Stan, the pump on the Petromax works just like the accelerator pump on a Bendix carb like on some Harleys. All ya gotta do to make it seal is put some motor oil on the leather washer.

It's too bad you're not gonna last long after the changeover. You are clearly perceptive and quite funny. But you can't eat wit.

-- we must (laugh@theabsurdityofit.all), July 21, 1999.

Wit? I knew the pessimists asked me to eat something, and it did sound a lot like wit.... (laughter) Worry about how you are going to protect your little food stores if the U.S. becomes a lawless (and hungry) place. Worry about how to pay the bills with a basement full of food. Worry about solar flares. But save us both the time, and don't worry about me.
