Don't Have to Drink the Water

Yes, after 3 years of study a group could not decide that drinking water actually prevented dehydration.

And so the EU has outlawed bottled water bottlers from making the claim. (link)

It's like someone over here managed to bottle "Congresscritter" and sell it in Brussles....

A lawyer and a senior citizen are sitting next to each other on a long flight. The lawyer is thinking that seniors are so dumb that he could get one over on them easy... So the lawyer asks if the senior would like to play a fun game. The senior is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely d...

Glad you're okay! Never underestimate the value of some steel tubes attached to the front of the frame.

Kodak makes hay of the "low cost" of their ink but the sad fact is that to really get lower ink costs you either need to go to a big printer or buy a nice printer in the size you want and install a continuous ink system (which isn't as hard as it sounds). Assuming you don't wanna buy a big printer l...

I'd guess (without being in any way an expert) it's that fleecing a sheep doesn't kill it. I do enjoy bantering with my vegan friend though, when she starts talking about the suffering cows suffer from when being milked by huge evil machines I'll usually ask her how she knows they're not into BDSM....

That avatar was mine. I came up with it, and used it, long before you showed up with your amazing skills of delusion. I did not in any way assert that my comment inspired the avatar. Only that after some comment made by me someone, you apparently, used an avatar like it for a while afterward. If yo...

I agree about the chopsocky movies. Also, Kung Fu Fighting is about the only disco song I've ever liked.

The comics weren't much better.

Back in the day you couldn't even save decent pictures to a floppy but they were able to save Optimus to one.

Note: last time I brought this up someone temporarily changed their avatar to a floppy with the word "Porn" scratched out and "Optimus Prime" scribbled in.
