And is there a point to this? Or is it open mike night in MetaTalk?

no, screwdriver, stop using that mouthwash, you'd go free if you share, give her a mint, CTRl-S, dick jokes kill, mine, none, try Craigslist, so am I, no, but I will fill it with useless facts about my life, don't I know it, not me, buy a new sweater, good for you both, German?!, I have too many now, when food goes down into your stomach, I'm not, tabasco sauce, you deserve it, no, sell your soul, I haven't, use Google, electric supply store, neither, always a good thing to plan

On preview: there doesn't seem to be one, and I think it might be.

Declaw your cats.
posted by brain_drain at 10:30 PM on January 11, 2006


DO NOT declaw your cats. Also, consult a lawyer/doctor immediately. That said, I'm sure it's nothing serious, and rubbing a severed chicken head over the wound has been considered efficacious by some cultures. YMMV.

Anyone know California probate laws?

Yes, they are difficult to navigate and you defiantly need to use a layer

What kind of pocket tools would you recommend?

Girls these days don't like the 'bulging pocket' look so you should try to keep your pocket baggage to a minimum.

Every once in a while I get these very small white-ish sores on my tongue.

It's caused by a virus, try taking some L-lysine

Let's say that I was caught by local authorities with around 500 very high quality marijuana plants.

Depending on the state you are either fucked or are due a favor.

Breath issues for tonight's date.

Floss, brush and don't forget the tongue.

Microsoft Excel help needed.

No.

Biographical-style humor incorporating absurd claims.

I have saved the lives of 3 friends because I pretend to be a representative of Cal-OSHA and it bugs the hell out of everyone when I run around shouting 'NO WAY! No Way, I'm tellin'

What are the greatest conceptual music videos ever made?

Pink Floyd "Live at Pompeii"

What organizations exist in the Twin Cities for web professionals?

I have no idea, ask Prince.

Organic vegetable delivery in the Bay Area.

Don't know but I once got rear ended by a delivery van of a dot-com era grocery delivery company. And they paid, oh, they paid!

I'm looking for some nice wine glasses to give as a gift.

Don't, they break and your giftees, assuming they like you, will be sad when they do.

Will you fill my brain with information about Verizon Wireless Broadband?

[opening link]....[opening link]......[opening link].......Beeep!

Streaming QuickTime problem.

Quicktime is tricky, try upgrading.

Does anyone have experience or knowledge of the Japanese tradition called girichoko?

No.

Getting latex paint out of wool.

You're out of luck, latex does not come out from wool.

My wife and I are talking about going to Vancouver.

Please send me a care package when you get there, emails in my profile.

Schadenfreudefilter.

All Day Baby!

I haven't got a free moment during the day. When do I eat?

Cup o soup?

I am thinking of getting a Mac.

Wise choice.

Canker sore remedies?

Isn't this a dup, L-lysine.

Office 2003 SP2 grief.

Sorry, enjoy your time in hell, get a Mac.

Share your corn chowder recipes.

6 ears of fresh corn
strip off kernels and reserve
boil cobs for 2 hours
fry up some bacon
remove bacon from pan and reserve
remove most of bacon fat
throw in some diced onion and celery
sauté
throw everything into a big pot and simmer half an hour
toss in a hand full of cocktail shrimp and italian parsley
simmer five mins and serve with a garnish of parsley and crumbled bacon

How to become a music promoter

Meet dudes in bands and make phone calls to clubs.

Has anyone been to Libya?

Yes, but not me.

Volunteering and photography in Biloxi/New Orleans.

You go!

What is a good outlet for purchasing thermocouples?

Is that any thing like a Flux Capacitor?

Costa Blanca or Costa Brava?

Brava!

Tattoo planning. [more inside]

Don't

If I remember right, a thermocouple is something inside a heater unit, not part of the theromostat, but something that provides the current required to loop through the thermostat and make that circuit work (in other words, creates electrical current from heat).

Did I get it right? No. Of course not. Someone just tell me.

Miguel answered it all years ago:

you can get spanking fresh just-caught fish in the main links, XFM radio, and the links to dictionaries, should be shown next month in Cannes.[...] very carefully, avoiding obstructions. Every crash is a terrible price to pay for growing up [...] Pessoa is indeed horrendous, but can't find someone to cook it immediately, very lightly. Shopping lists are for losers. And so on, until you start blanching, searing and actually grilling - and he knew his drinks and bars: La Floridita and the mushrooms.

That thread made me laugh even more than this one. I've said it before and I'll take this occasion to say it again: majcher, or somebody, please bring back Genefilter!

Were I dumb enough to sell a French Horn in Washington state and I got let out on bail, and I was looking at an average of three years in state pound-me-in-the-ass prison, I would have to think long and hard about running off to Chile or the Netherlands (even though the countires to which I'm suggesting you flee may well have extradition treaties) or somewhere similar using a black market Canadian passport (although I have no idea where I'd begin looking for such a thing) after having snuck across the uncontrolled border and having taken the bus to Toronto, where I could fly non-stop to Europe without any US database being checked (even though after 9/11 this is totally not the case). A lifetime of exile beats three years of hell in my books. But this is not advice, because I am not counseling that anyone break further laws. Just sayin', is all. I don't advocate the information I provide, because I'm just spouting my opinions on AskMetaFilter instead of helping people find answers to their questions.
