    Man, I am drunker than Helen Keller on a treadmill. I perhaps should not drink no more.

    I drink to forget stuff. Problem is I can't remember what the stuff was that I was drinking to forget.

    Martin Milner just said dug in normal conversation on Adam-12, as in I can dig it. That stuff really rubbed off on society I guess.

    He was having a conversation with his partner driving along in the squad car and said that his wife really dug something. I didn't catch what it was but I'm sure it was something really exciting like sex or freshly fried doughnuts.

    Damn! I have another fricking cold sore. And I'm monogamous. There goes my belief in universal justice.

    I didn't know about your antiques past. I've heard that field is no longer very profitable in general. A lot of antique stores have closed in my area, but a few stalwart shops seem to keep going.

    Yeah, I'm not really concerned about the value, I wanted to know how it works, take it apart, put it back together, etc. But since I bought a non-working machine I paid relatively little money for it. Assuming I get the thing working, which it mostly is, I could potentially sell it for far more than I bought it for. That of course requires a buyer. On E-bay common model fully working machines seem to go for $700 - $1,500. Rare models can go into the $5,000 - $10,000 range, but again this presumes a buyer. Something that no one will actually buy has no value, despite what any price guide says.

    Perhaps he is just shy. I used to be shy, but then the internet came along and I'm now like... SURE I've had sexual relations with a watermelon, who the hell hasn't?

    Ok ok, I know I'm a little drunk, I'm just gearing up for a little paper clip discussion. They may seem rather insignificant to you, but I, being who I am and all think they may have more importance than y'all might think, despite the declining need for paper.

    Do I know what I'm talking about? Fuck no, man, that's the beauty of the internet, you ain't even got to know what the fuck you're talking about. It's really kinda fun. Thanks, Zap. I'm having a good time.

    Life seemed so simple back in them American western days, but it wasn't. I'm talking fetchin' water and stuff like that. Can we in this day and age even imagine having to fetch water? SURE, if you live in some godforsaken place in Africa maybe, but I for one am opposed to the idea.
