What would you do if you found out your child was a homosapien?

Dihydrogen monoxide is truly insidious, acting as a gateway to the stronger stuff like coffee.

Edited by dwise1, : "gateway" (apparently current) instead of "stepping stone" (what we were told in the 60's)

Dihydrogen monoxide is truly insidious, acting as a gateway to the stronger stuff like coffee.

And when you mix the 2 components near a spark they explode, scary. Yet it looks like an innocent cup of coffee.

Re: Sand Sculpture: ******* Crumbling
Lib*er*ty IS crumbling because of the wackos who are attacking Trump and his supporters based on nothing.

That doesn't even make sense. Criticism of the government is what ensures liberty.

You might as well say that criticizing Trump causes cancer.

No no no, it's windmills that cause cancer, at least according to Trumpkins.

Hey, just turn off all the windmills. We can burn more coal to make up for it.

Eschew obfuscation. Habituate elucidation.

My favorite is "unplanned disassembly", which is a variation on T.F.O.A. (Things Falling Off Aircraft).
