    Are you trying to win the "started the most threads" award or something?

    I had a friend who tried to make wine himself in his dormroom... emphasis on TRIED... It was some of the most god-awful stuff I had ever tasted. It was just this side of vinager.

    I've never tried it myself, but I would like to. I'm not much of a wine drinker, but lots of my friends are.

    "Oh, that is all well and good, but, voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same way in any country."

    NO

    Well wait, does it count that I once dated a psycho girl who I would make whine with every little thing I did that she did not agree with.

    My parents got me a wine-making kit in high school, after our English class had made mead or something in class. My wine wasn't very good, though.

    OH... OH I can't believe I won! I would like to think all those who posted on the Threads I started, oh and to my co-workers for not knowing that I spend more time on here than I should, and to Maister for talking about the most off the wall ideas what would give me new ideas, and my doctor for giving me enough medication to mess up my head for a good time to come, and to federal government for making this Thursday a holiday, and the City manager for making this a short week, and to my personal friend Juan Valdez for providing me with great coffee. I would like to also think someone who has been my guiding light, my best friend, my fish named fluffy for giving me the courage to ask meaning less random questions on a whim.

    I tried once and it was an unmitigated disaster.
    Annoyingly insensitive

    I'M SORRY WE ARE CUTTING YOU OFF! You are exhibiting a level of randomness that is shall we say...suspect. First you announce that you "understand" Badgerbadgerbadger now this....acceptance speech which is on a par with Farrah Fawcett's infamous appearance on the Letterman Show.

    Your name is being forwarded to the FBI. It's the best thing for you - you'll thank me later, really.
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    It is best we not speak of this.
