Floccinaucinihilipilification

defined - "the declaration of an item being useless" is the longest non-medical

Trivial, I know;

Right now, this very second, 70% of the people driving on U.S. highways are speeding.

Desperate to increase veggie intake among children in Britain, researchers have developed chocolate-flavored carrots, pizza-flavored corn and baked-bean-flavored peas.

Rubber bands last longer when refrigerated.


Now, this IS interesting technology that has been on the "back
burner" for decades. Hydrogen makes very efficient fuel. Solar

I had already spent so much time making comments, went to post them and lost them because I failed to notice that I had lost my wireless connection. Pertaining to the 70% of peole who are speeding - I know why. The highways are designed to drive faster thanthan the posted speed; cars are designed to be driven faster and safer; and there is no law enforcmeent on the open highways. In the 8,500 miles we have driven so far, we have seen three state police and two of those were today. Leave It To Beaver, what a great show to introduce the view of the toilet - however,I shall make no reference to beaver and toilet.

If you feel the incessant urge,
and your tongue is sharp and quick,
leave a worthless thought for me
whether cool, or fun, or sick.
