    Sorry I haven't drunk that swill in a few years, except at moms. For some reason she still buys that crap.

    But next year this time it won't matter so who cares.

    Yeah I remember one of the rhymes being, "I before E, except after C? What a WEIRD SOCIETY."

    The movie Weird Science had both words not conform to the "rule".

    That's a good idea. When the aliens come to capture you you may be able to bribe them with a fine porterhouse steak.

    Shockingly I am. You do know Planet Of The Apes is my all time favorite movie, right? I think I've made it known. Even though he is an over-actor. Much like Al Pacino.

    I was just being sarcastic with you though. I've seen the movie and it's great.

    Actually 368. Some of the sources date it as 23Dec2012. Which makes a great deal of sense (can not expand on that per Forum rules)
