Its actually a sub-trade in the construction industry . Usually ironworkers or pipe fitters. I loved doing it esp. when you worked with cranes

Homer - author of the first piece of European literature.
Dylan - stoner with an acoustic guitar. 
He's not even as influential as Homer Simpson.

So the Big 12 has less than 12 members. They recently considered expansion, presumably to actually get them to 12 members, but ultimately decide against it??? What the fuck is going on confused.gif

I always assumed this was because you haven't adopted the metric system. As far as I understand imperial, it's valid to say 12=10 and 10=14.

the dream that woke me up this morning was this: i was watching a news report that LAPD had put a new bathroom stall in their headquarters. on the door of the stall was a commemorative plaque that read "Frank Drebin, Debonair".

 

no more breakfast for dinner for me.

If there was no biological toll I would be drunk every waking moment I was not at work. The folks with the real problems are those that pay no heed to the biological price and keep the pedal to the metal.

All my friends who don't get hangovers are the heaviest drinkers, both in frequency and amount per session.

I've had maybe three hangovers in my life and it's not for lack of drinking cheers.gif
