    I was wondering that myself.

    They say that radiology fees are among the main things that sink an individual's insurance plan. If simple economics win out, you can probably expect to see a big jump in Scotch tape sales.

    And a load of people who have skin abrasions.

    So how long will it take till the first instructions on how to build a homemade X-Ray apparatus powered by scotch tape will appear on the net?

    This thread should be moved to the OT so that OTites will stop creating copycat threads unknowingly

    Several points here.

    1. I actually got KrazyHorse and someone else (I think it was Sirotnikov) mixed up for a while. Because of Sirotnikov's avatar, which has a horse. But then I realized it was a skeptical horse, not a Krazy Horse. (Although KrazyHorse's current avatar seems like it's been... um... superseded by events )

    2. No worries about KH's taste in humor. Some people just don't have the same humor that I do. If this is KH's situation, then he's in good company (alongside my father, my former roommate, and most but not all of my law professors).

    2a. Of course, not all my posts are humorous. He may well find the rest of my posts, the serious ones, worth his time (the ones about law, politics, and science).

    2b. Even if he doesn't, he's in good company. LordShiva doesn't open threads that I start, and DaShi doesn't read any of my sexual posts.

    Seriously, it's all right. KH is just providing feedback and he's not attacking anybody personally.

    ...

    So, tape anybody?



    Edit: Apparently it's actually law, politics, and computers. So obviously science is irrelevant.

    I'm not trying to be mean. She seems like a perfectly nice person.

    You don't find her funny because you can have sex with women in the real world. Don't **** on her sense of humor and those who appreciate it just because you're ridiculously blessed by Poly standards.

    Like, is that a masturbation joke? If so, then it wasn't funny.

    When that happens, try this.

    1. Hold the grimace.

    2. Close your eyes.

    3. Make like you're rolling dice.

    For best results ask your coworker to watch you when you do this and offer constructive feedback.

    Alinestra's posts have never once made me laugh. In fact, I often grimace when she makes awkward jokes (as she is wont to do).

    I can't quite put things the way you do, though.

    I want it to be known that I have never played the triangle in the Salvation Army Marching Band. Ever. Not even once while I was drunk and in high school in a boarding house in the UK.

    That is all.

    I'm disappointed in you.

    This phenomenon, known as "triboluminescence", is produced by the friction generated when two surfaces rub against each other.


    ... Made me think more along the lines of tribadism... I'm sure that must generate some energy as well.

    edit by Snoopy: That link is not worksafe, not that you should have needed the warning in an AC thread.

    Edit by me again: But, but... it's Wikipedia!
