I can see that you are lost as...

If you can't convince a receptacle audience then how can you expect to nail down your extras?

Get it together man....

This reminds me of the signs on the emergency doors in one of my local supermarkets: "Warning: This door is alarmed."

Really? It doesn't even look mildy worried to me! [Linked Image]
