Your initial statement suggested that 50% non-potable could reduce your bill by 80%. I know you were pulling numbers out of the air; I was just pedantically pointing out that the numbers you chose were impossible under any strictly "per gallon" scheme.

facepalm.gif yep, you're right. fyi: I do happen to have a tiered cost system which makes it possible, but I didn't say that in my example.

Little do you know it's actually video of Kunk doing bench presses.

Today I was talking in Spanish with someone laughed at me as I said "circunstancias." He thought I had a speech defect of lisping (I say "thircunstanthias," which is perfectly correct.) Even if the person thought I did have a speech defect, why would a person laugh about it that is rude.

During the intermission of opera last night (sort of like "halftime"), various personages tried to get me to join the Friends of the Opera Society (or whatever it is called). Needless to say, you "join" the society by giving them lots of money. Here's the part I don't get: they listed the different benefits you get for donating at different levels. One of the benefits you could earn by donating enough money was the opportunity to do some volunteer work. Wha?

Since musical performers entertain us during halftime of sporting events, I wonder if it would be good for sports teams to return the favor and hold sporting events during intermission of music events. That might be a good idea

I'd donate much money to be able to "do some volunteer work" with Katherine Jenkins and/or Anna Netrebko.

It seems like the color combination of black and lavender was popular in the United States for only one year I am talking about 1982. I wonder if it's going to make a comeback?

Also, pink and brown was all the rage of color combination in 2006 (I think). That is one of my favorite combos hope it comes back as well.

I am eating a Yoplait yogurt of apple pie flavor tastes exactly like apple pie to where it is eerie. I wonder if Yoplait knows how to do transubstantiation turn an apple pie into a yogurt?

They just dump some apple pie filling in a yoghurt.

Why gmail, google maps, etc keep coming out with worse and worse versions of their prior iterations.

This isn't the whole cause, but the desire to replace english with symbols that they think are intuitive is fucking stupid. Just have an English / Other Language button. Fucks.
