[Wave] Just kidding. I still don't see what the big deal was with Bush doing it.

This thread is like a dripping faucet...[/b]
Do you know why those toilet seats and ashtrays cost so much? There is a legitimate reason you know. [Uh Oh !]

Then they would be worth $1000. laugh

They are designed not to shatter. In an explosion they are designed to break into heavy pieces so anyone around them can have a better chance of avoiding a shraptnel (sp?)type wound. The ashtrays and other things of that nature are expensive for the same reason. I guess the materials they need just cost more. laugh Consider yourself OWNED!!! laugh wink (I am kidding, I just always wanted to say that.) :rolleyes: laugh

So, what exactly are they made of then? Seems to me, the plastic one in my bathroom wouldn't shatter - any kind of blast would just send it flying in one piece (ouch!). The toilet itself is another story.

Jesus Christ, people, ever heard of "priorities"?

I had Stage 4 Non-Hodgekins Lymphoma when I was 18 and had a Stem Cell Transplant which cured it. I have no problem with the money spent to fly Bush in.

As for "priorities", I like that you said that there are "animals who are abandoned in the streets to die"! I didn't know that was such a hot issue! I saw a dead deer on the road this morning, perhaps if we gave it $5 dollars it would still be alive!

I tried giving $5 to this stray cat I saw running around the nieghborhood. He said he didnt take "charity". Put his tail up, turned around and walked away. I was like, "well I never". When I got home my other 4 cats and 2 dogs almost threw all my stuff out on the lawn because they somehow knew I was out looking for pussy. wink
