    Not sure if that would be better or worse than “Foreign organizations lying on the Internet distributing misinformation”.

    Well, maybe you got some free visible socks with the invisible ones. Better check the package again. Or have you taken the socks out already? Damn, maybe the invisible socks fell out then. If that's the case, it will be really hard to find them now. Better just order another pair.

    Or maybe they're invisible in the sense that you can't look at them without getting sick.:rommie:

    Like when you say that something is unmentionable for example.:D

    What's killing me lately is that Disney has so mismanaged the Muppet brand that I have to watch my favorite Muppet Show characters hawking wannabe-Skype from Facebook.

    I'm ready to go now...

    Before that, they were/are selling insurance, though.

    The Mandalorian helmet reminds me of a Cylon.

    Yeah, but those are more Sesame Street Muppets. I can live with that.

    I once learned an infallible cure for memory loss, unfortunately, I can't remember it.

    I wonder what the world would be like if there were no hypothetical situations.

    I have probably written about this before, but here it is again. True story: One of the Coasties I worked with was up a tree in a deer blind, when he lost his balance and fell out of the tree, landing on his head ON A TURTLE. Whenever people hear this story the first thing they always ask is "what happened to the turtle?" before even asking about the Coastie.

    I currently watch the anime series "Legend of Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These" on Netflix, in the original Japanese with German subtitles. Thing is, there's a character named Admiral Sithole, and every time that name appears in the subtitles, my mind adds an 'h' in there.

    Watching old CSI reruns this morning and realized how totally unrealistic it is. I wonder if real-life CSI's work in the dark, carry Glocks and interrogate witnesses. The show is filmed almost totally in low light - even in the lab. They go into crime scenes in the dark with flashlights and never bother to turn on the lights. They constantly pick up evidence before photographing it in situ and handle evidence in the lab without sterile gloves . . .etc. And I can't tell you how wrong it is for a CSI to think that his/her job is to get a conviction.

    First question I'd ask is "What is a Coastie ?"
