  1. I bet that some sort of filling or seasoning was spread on the "frough" before it was rolled up.
  2. Doesn't the DOJ call them "personal defense rifles " when carried by LEOs?
  3. There is nothing in the US Constititution binding states permanently into the Union.
  4. Yep. The EU is basically the European countries trying to be like the antebellum United States. Now the UK is acting like the Deep South and wants to leave a political union that it feels does not represent it.
  5. Well, more about our dumb society. Mazda 3. Lady pushes the remote for he car. Red balloon drifts from behind some trees. She grabs the string and off she goes. At the bottom of the screen we see "Dramatization. Do not attempt. " That the Commercials have to carry such disclaimers is a sad commentary on society.

  7. Keith ain't got a thing on Betty White! Those DC-3s are the Energizer Bunnies of the air.
  8. If they are anything like their grandfathers, you bet!
  9. Well, that was my first impression from the title of the tread. Now, of course, I have lines of the bawdy ditty "Ancient Irish French Letter" floating through the little grey cells.
  10. Or sheep gut. But, yes, I was thinking along the lines of a french letter.
  11. I would get rolls of half dollars and dollar coins to use at Ren Faire. Food vendors didn't much care for them, but the performers liked when I tossed them onto the stage or into the hat, cup, or bowl.
  12. complete (adj.) late 14c., "having no deficiency, wanting no part or element; perfect in kind or quality; finished, ended, concluded," from Old French complet "full," or directly from Latin completus, past participle of complere "to fill up, complete the number of (a legion, etc.)," transferred to "fulfill, finish (a task)," from com-, here probably as an intensive prefix (see com-), + plere "to fill" (from PIE root *pele- (1) "to fill"). complete (v.) late 14c., "make complete, bring to an end, supply what is lacking; fulfill, accomplish," from complete (adj.) and probably in part from Latin completus. Related: Completed; completing. finish (v.) late 14c., "to bring to an end;" mid-15c., "to come to an end" (intransitive), from Old French finiss-, present participle stem of fenir "stop, finish, come to an end; die" (13c.), from Latin finire "to limit, set bounds; put an end to; come to an end," from finis "that which divides, a boundary, border," figuratively "a limit, an end, close, conclusion; an extremity, highest point; greatest degree," which is of unknown origin, perhaps related to figere "to fasten, fix" (see fix (v.)). Meaning "to kill, terminate the existence of" is from 1755. finish (n.) 1779, "that which finishes or gives completion," from finish (v.). Meaning "the end" is from 1790. Finish line attested from 1873.
