I think you can still produce viable sperm with just one testicle... and they have prosthetic ones so it doesn't look too bad. http://cdn-www.cracked.com/phpimages...2/9632.jpg?v=1 Plus, Hitler managed it...

It's quicker to take a quick photo of the text card than it is to type it all into a memo.
Threads (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0090163/) is my favorite apocalyptic film. TV movie that was shown once on over-the-air channels in the UK at the height of the cold war. Terrified everyone, got banned from TV and the writer never worked again. Low budget but the unflinching realism gets inside your head like nothing else. It's just so... ordinary. When the Wind Blows is another British film, an animation. The Brits have the perfect sense of despair and pessimism...
I got by with a Black and Decker $30 burr grinder from Target. Broke down twice in 18 months and got replaced under warranty. Recently upgraded to an Ascaso i-Mini which was $285 from http://www.seattlecoffeegear.com/ and the difference for espresso is very noticeable. Still keep the Black and Decker for coarse grind though. If you're just grinding for drip coffee/french press then a cheap burr grinder is fine. For espresso, it's worth saving up for a decent grinder.

Even in the world's oldest profession, workers eventually get old enough that they need to move to managing the front of the...

Quote: Originally Posted by marmaladecorgi Not certain what you want re the investment value of the pieces Is there such thing as investment value at the low end of the art market? It seems like "market established" works start in the $$$$$ range - if you're buying student/local artist/etsy stuff for $$$-$$$$ it seems like it has no resale market. Seems equivalent to penny stocks or thrift store shopping - occasionally you'll get lucky if you...

http://www.turningart.com looks interesting; you can subscribe and get prints sent to you (think Netflix for art) or buy the original pieces at quite reasonable prices. Not subscribed myself yet, but there's a lot on there I like (compared to etsy or eBay where there's a ton of junk).
