They finally sent us the drinking water report for my university. Good ol' arsenic in our water nicely above the recommended levels! At least that's something you can build up a tolerance to, right? :?
You should fold.

That's comforting eh effika... arsenic, along with mercury and lead were also used as pestacides in the olden days, till they were found poisionous...

No Hair? tha would explain why you wear the hat, and maybe you can explain how this works
19. What hair color do they put on the driver's licenses of bald men?

I should get my water tested for arsenic... you'd be surprised how much of my hair has fallen out (i lose so much daily, yet i never see the diff)

The word was gullible, but it's been taken out of the Oxford English Dic.

Hm... should have done some basic math first... 2003-28=toby... as to the grey n balding, it's either the water supply, stress, genetics, or good ole' mercury lined hats...

Interesting that the poll only has a bottled spring water option, I mean, unbottled (as in from the spring in the woods) is the best water out there, provided it's crystal clear and there are no large growths of aquatic plants.

i just drink Orange Juice which is 90% water and it tastes a heck of a lot better

I did that for awhile too, then after a urine test the doc told me I was drinking too much of it... sheesh, the only "fruit" I eat anyways, and I"m being told to cut back.... :lol:
