What do you know about nuns? Have you ever handled a nun? Are you a member of the NRA (Nun Reach-around Association)? Do you believe it is your right to own a nun?
The constitution says so. It is my right to have bear bare nuns.And before anybody says bare nuns are better, let me ask which one do you think would more likely rip your enemies' arms off on command?
ftfy.

As to bear nuns and ripping arms off, better to hike with a companion and carry a 22 pistol to shoot them in the knee if bear attack seems immanent.

Today's thread necromancy: Gum Control.

Bruce won this thread I think.

Amazing.

I have no memory of writing that. Those neurons are long dead. I wonder what other memories I have lost. :(
Such potential!

Holy cow, I remember that particular wrapper... and I'm pretty sure I actually got one in 1979!

I finally got all of the gum spots removed from the kitchen floor.

Granted, I had to remove a layer of floor tiles to do it but FLAWLESS VICTORY IS MINE!!!!

Now I have to get that thin layer of stick-on-tile glue off of the layer of tile that was underneath.

There is another layer of tile under the newly-revealed layer. Under the lowest layer of tile is "underlayment" and below that is the actual wood floor. Whoever used to own the house apparently didn't feel like pulling off any of the old tile to put down new...which is just as well because the adhesive probably has asbestos fiber in it.
