Actually, nobody is buried in Grant's tomb. Grant and his wife are embalmed in it, but not buried. If they were buried, it would be called "Grant's Grave." (ducks the fish!)

Next thing you're going to tell me is that the Hundred Years' War wasn't really a hundred years long!

Yes, you're right! It's incredibly hard to tell. But I think that's because it's invisible...

true or not, however.

Look ----> I. It's an "i" that has been capitalized. Does that surprise you? No? How about if I rewrite your post correctly? [Razz]

Wasn't that "wop"? I believe it was the sound the Krikket warriors made when they materialized?

Hmm. Any human being, under the right circumstances, could die at any time. And there are some weird causes. Yet I doubt very seriously--get away from me with that thing! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Yes. Especially people who write questions in all caps; those are the most suceptible to the disease called "ANYTHING". It is quite dangerous.. like some chain letters that aren't sent out, it hits on your grandmother, drinks all the milk in the fridge, gives your ex your new phone number, and is a rather interesting shade of teal. The disease causes you to be extra suseptible to trouts and being sat on, and it makes you speak in Yoda. The only cure is phenylpropanolamine .

Well, I really didn't feel like doing any psychic readings today, but I'll be nice just this once...

*Looks at email*

Nope, it's fake...and so's that one...and that one...ooh, THAT one is definitely a phony...and the father of your baby is not that guy you met in Cleveland...and yes, it's a girl.
