You can't look down on me for that can you?

I am not looking down on you for that, I am just perplexed that you changed position like someone dropping a hoe for another

All on his own?! That was the tried and true FTL-GS combo. FTL was wielding the sledge hammer while I was gently nudging him out of the way.

I would be concerned about the powersource for the lightbulb myself.

And is it a CFL or old school tungsten? While the CFL will last much longer it does cost more and it required by those damned liberals. It also would be a bitch to get a mercury spill in your brain.

I'm just saying.

That's true but give QBN credit, he's a grown up after all

This is all complete and utter bullshit. Bullshit I say. Pure unadulterated bullshit with flies on top. A heaping, stinking, leaping mound of irreconcilable Bullshit.

The funny thing is I kept sending PMs to FTL to back off of QBN, that he wasn't a Bushie any more. It's hard to get him to stop, FTL really likes to keep swinging.
