plant a grounding rod in a bush down the street in a bush.
Toonces - Don't ask me, I just close my eyes and take it.

Gus - I use sweatpants with flannel shorts to soak up my crotch sweat.

Banzai Cat - There is no "partial credit" in grammar. Like anal sex. It's either in, or it's not.

Mirth - We learned long ago that they key isn't to outrun Star, it's to outrun Gus.

Martok - I don't know if it's possible to have an "anti-boner"...but I now have one.

Gus - Celery is vile and has no reason to exist. Like underwear on Star.

The guys who installed my solar panels also put in a lightning arrestor on the electric company pole where I sell back to the co-op. They told me NOTHING could protect my electronic stuff from an immediate, direct strike. You put in the best protection you can afford and pray.

Thatís what Iíve been told too. With a direct strike, youíre screwed.

Years back lightning struck the roof of a building housing about 25 mental patients where I worked causing a fire to break-out in the attic. All the residents and staff had to be evacuated in the middle of a blinding rainstorm. I'm sure glad I was off work that night.  <:-)

Michael Myers was on one of my wards I worked. So was Jason. For kicks, we used to switch their masks then wait until they passed each other in the hall.  :2funny:  It was a riot.....literally.
