Now I know why my last laser operation went so poory, I forgot to change the setting from bulldozer to eyeball.....

Electricity must have a great shelf life if no new electricity has been created since 1937...

I wonder what the normal consumer would make of that video.

That's rich. I had no idea that Mary Anne Amp was so prominant, and I always wondered where the word "transformer' came from.
