stuff like this is par for the course agitating


My petrostate is failing too, because of all the agitating. Apparently it just starts to happen at my age.

It's because you and Sam aren't friends on facebook.

*A 2012 study published in the most prestigious Field of Informed and Educated Expert Journal (or FIEEJ as some call it) says you are 98% less likely to not only suffer the effects of petrostate failure, but also other types of failures including prophylactic failure, BAC test failure, and general living failure.

*This may or may not be a real study in what may or may not be a real journal

Fake blood (sold in bottles at party stores) looks like blood when it's wet, but in my experience it looks nothing like dried blood when it dries. Red food coloring and mayonnaise, on the other hand, looks nothing like blood when it's wet but does a pretty good job looking like dried blood when it dries.

Today I learned about slave-making ants: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slave-making_ant and it's just wow, you can't make this shit up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-amj9kM6zKw&list=PL9SLkANZIEtUowZJG-ZV0UzNw_k2hBlAb https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BfuOzSWtxRw . It makes me wonder: Are we enslaved by our cats and dogs? Wink

I've learned that the numbers on the dial on the side of a toaster are for how many minutes to toast. I thought it was some sort of scale of toastiness...

Borborygmi is the medical term for stomach growling. Suggested use: "Did you hear that? It's my borborygmi." Maybe someone will think it's a pet.
