    That's one unhappy worm.
    The Rules
    Copper- behave toward others to elicit treatment you would like (the manipulative rule)
    Gold- treat others how you would like them to treat you (the self regard rule)
    Platinum - treat others the way they would like to be treated (the PC rule)

    We just had 50 mile winds and nothing else (well, it rained for most of the night, but wasn't particularly bad).

    I could have had class. I could have been a contender.
    I could have been somebody. Instead of a bum
    Which is what I am

    I aim at the stars
    But sometimes I hit London

    Nice picture Mario.

    Dread, don't worry. If you can't fly or land, then no one else can either. You may get a taste of the Windy City, though. Just be glad it's not 10 degrees below zero.

    We had a brief moment of sideways rain at about 1:00pm. At around 4:30 as I drove home there were some sweet clouds over Detroit and down river. But they rolled away and let the sun shine. No worries.

    "Mother and I's?" "Mother and I's?"

    RIP English.

    This is how we had it drilled into our heads.

    I doubt it. Any time you put an "and" between a noun and a personal pronoun, you should be able to remove the "noun+ and" and have the pronoun still make sense. "Your mother and my vacation" is correct, the test being "my vacation," not "I's vacation."

    Of course, this rule is constantly violated. Consider the object of a preposition. Nobody will say "Is the present for I?" But it's amazing how many people will say "Is that present for Illusions and I?" It should be "Illusions and me," but the conjunction confuses people's conjugation.

    Is conjugation the correct word for pronouns? Huh.

    That "I's" hurts my eyes and my ears and I am not even native English speaker.

    In the future, the Berlin wall will be a mile high, and made of steel. You too will be made to crawl, to lick children's blood from jackboots. There will be no creativity, only productivity. Instead of love there will be fear and distrust, instead of surrender there will be submission. Contact will be replaced with isolation, and joy with shame. Hope will cease to exist as a concept. The Earth will be covered with steel and concrete. There will be an electronic policeman in every head. Your children will be born in chains, live only to serve, and die in anguish and ignorance.
    The universe we observe has precisely the properties we should expect if there is, at bottom, no design, no purpose, no evil, no good, nothing but blind, pitiless indifference.

    Ugh, Mariah Carey. She and her melisma seriously damaged pop music.

    Though I suppose if I had some nice cleavage, I too would give it a scratch and sniff now and then. Oops! Are we on live?

    Why do you doubt it? It seems to be a pretty consistent experience for people my age that their middle schools teachers mistook the fact that because "Me and Blank" was improper that "Blank and Me" was also always improper. I can't fathom why you're amazed how many people will say "Is that present for Illusions and I?", but can't possibly believe its due to being taught it that way throughout middle school. I mean really?
